Schnucks finds source of credit card fraud

Sunday, 31 March 2013 08:19 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Schnucks grocery store chain says it's found the source of a credit card fraud problem that has victimized dozens of people.

<br><br>

In a news release Saturday, Schnucks Markets Inc. announced that the computer forensic firm it hired discovered that a computer code was recording customers' credit and debit card numbers. The suburban St. Louis-based grocery says it's taken "comprehensive measures" designed to block further access.

<br><br>

CEO Scott Schnuck described what happened as a "cyberattack" and says the company is cooperating with authorities.

<br><br>

The chain learned March 15th that some customers had noticed unauthorized charges for credit cards they used at Schnucks. Shoppers were encouraged to pay with cash or checks until the fraud problem was resolved.

<br><br>

Authorities said many of the unauthorized charges were at out-of-state big box stores.

 

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Prosecutors say they'll recommend a 10-month prison sentence for a Maine Zumba teacher who used her fitness studio as a front for a prostitution operation.

<br><br>

Alexis Wright pleaded guilty Friday to 20 counts including engaging in prostitution, promotion of prostitution and conspiracy.

<br><br>

Wright's plea agreement spares her the prospect of a high-profile trial featuring sex videos, exhibitionism and pornography, and more than a thousand texts and emails detailing the operation.

<br><br>

The 30-year-old Wright was accused of conspiring with insurance agent Mark Strong Sr. to run a prostitution business out of her studio in the quiet seaside town of Kennebunk. She was also accused of using a hidden camera to record sex acts without her clients' knowledge.

<br><br>

Strong was convicted of 13 counts and sentenced to 20 days in jail.

Philadelphia praises train station hero

Saturday, 30 March 2013 07:36 Published in National News

 

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Christopher Knafelc (kuh-NAY-ful) was a recovering drug addict with a long rap sheet who often wondered if he was a good person, and perhaps never considered that anyone thought he was a hero.

<br><br>

But that was before he leaped onto the tracks to help a stranger he'd just seen fall off the platform at a Philadelphia train station.

<br><br>

He called up to people on the platforms to get the trains stopped, knowing one would be arriving soon.

<br><br>

Now, the 32-year-old Knafelc is being hailed as a hero and he's holding his head a little higher. He's taking the praise from his good deed as another sign that he's on the right path in life.

<br><br>

Still, Knafelc says he was just doing the "right thing."
