Original McDonald’s Museum plaque found online — but it’s not one stolen in San Bernardino

The Original McDonald’s Museum in San Bernardino has a Happy Meal version of the two commemorative plaques stolen last year from the front of the building. An online search found what turned out to be a smaller, but exact copy, of the missing tablets. The owner, an Indiana man who said he bought it at an estate auction of a McDonald’s memorabilia collector in the Midwest, wound up sending it to the museum as a donation — including shipping, according to museum founder and owner Albert Okura. ...

3 Ways To Prevent Employee Fraud And Theft In Your Startup

Startups are prime targets for fraud. In 2010, 42% of fraud cases occurred in privately held companies, according to the Association of Fraud Examiners. The majority of those cases involved companies with fewer than 100 employees. To make matters worse, the average fraud continued on for a year and a half before being discovered. Companies lost a median of $231,000 per case. That’s a lot of money for a start-up to lose. Laws regarding fraud, embezzlement and theft vary from state to state, but ...

Porch thief collared

Since it turned out the glitter bomb bait box was a hoax, I've finally accepted that nothing online is real. But this sure does look like a video of a porch pirate getting his ass ran down and beaten, complete with comical running back and forth, all set to the Benny Hill theme tune.

Glitter Bomb against Package Thieves

Stealing packages from unattended porches is a rapidly rising crime, as more of us order more things by mail. One person hid a glitter bomb and a video recorder in a package, posting the results when thieves opened the box. At least, that's what might have happened. At least some of the video was faked, which puts the whole thing into question. That's okay, though. Santa is faked, too. Happy whatever you're celebrating. [Author: Bruce Schneier]

Porch pirates sprayed with glitter and fart smell after opening fake package booby traps

We've all seen the videos of thieves shamelessly stealing packages off of people's porches. Now someone is fighting back. That someone is former NASA-JPL engineer/current science YouTube star Mark Rober and he ain't playing nice. He's spent six months crafting a beautifully over-engineered revenge package that looks like an Apple product. After the thief nabs it, it first gloriously sprays a pound of glitter when opened and then follows up by spurting out fart spray every 30 seconds. Oh yeah,...

Cops are using GPS and doorbell cameras to catch package thieves

People who steal other people's packages off porches are the frigging worst. They've no idea of what's in the box they're swiping: they don't care what they get, so long as they get something. It's burgling a house blindfolded. It's the laziest form of break and enter. It's one of the lowest forms of causal criminality going. Also, it's wicked hard to stop. With the holidays coming on like a freight train, more packages than usual are showing up on front porches, ripe for the picking. This year,...
