The Thieves (2012)
A group of thieves get together to steal a diamond from a casino. This movie from South Korea seems very similar to George Clooney's Ocean 11,12, 13 movies. There are many solid scenes in the movie ...including some impressive stunts that happen outside of tall buildings on the windows and ledges.
The Thieves (2012)
Kim Yun-seok, the ex-copper in The Chaser, plays the thief Macao Park who brings a team of South Korean thieves together with a crew from Hong Kong to steal a diamond necklace from a casino safe in Macau.
The film neatly balances out its sizable, all-star cast, giving each sufficient screen time and a chance to shine. The characters are each individual and fleshed-out pretty well. Leading man, Macao Park (Kim Yoon Suk), is an extremely clever thief that always seems to be one step ahead of everyone else. Popeye (Lee Jung Jae), as the shifty ringleader, brings in Pepsi (Kim Hye Soo), who comes back after being recently released from prison and contributes her expert safe-cracking skills. Park, along with Popeye and Pepsi, are veteran thieves in the Korean team, but have some complicated history between them.
Chewing Gum (Kim Hae Sook) is a delightful presence as the older, straight-talking con artist that wants to retire from the business. Younger additions Yenicall (Jeon Ji Hyun) and Zampano (Kim Soo Hyun), as the wire-walker and rope man respectively, round out the rest of the team. The only notable player from the Hong Kong side is Chen, who is charismatic and sweet as he and Chewing Gum start their own romance. There are secrets, distrust, and betrayal between all of the characters, who each have their own motives. No honor among thieves, as they say.
A team of Korean thieves headed by Popeye (Lee Jung Jae) look to pull off that one big job that will change all of their lives. The target: a gem worth $20million that is housed in a safe at a Macau casino. To complete the job, the Koreans must team up with their Chinese counterparts who are led by suave Chen, but friction is created with the return of Macao Park as the heist mastermind, a famed thief who double-crossed Popeye years prior. The job seems to go without a hitch, yet the owner of the diamond, the mysterious kingpin Wei Hung, is one step ahead of the bi-national alliance and starts to work his way through the thieves with brutal efficiency.

Yenicall (Gianna Jun) climbs walls, Zampano (Soo Hyun Kim) is the strategy man, and Chewingum (Hae-suk Kim) is the master of disguise.
But this new score - it's hot. Maybe too hot. But who can resist the Tear of The Sun: a 318-carat diamond, worth 20 million dollars, and locked away in a casino.The vault is impenetrable, the location covered in cops, and everyone knows there's no honor among thieves - especially not the crew Macao Park (Yun-seok Kim), Popie's old partner, has forced their team to work with. As they gear up and stroll into the casino with a plan, skills, and a whole lot of nerve, they quickly learn that avoiding the cops may not be their toughest problem. What's Macao Park's real motive?

The director-writer, who has many box office hits under his belt including "Tazza: The High Rollers" (2006) and "The Thieves" (2012), said in a press conference in Seoul on Thursday the "Alienoid" is a realization of his childhood imagination.
The thieves are increasingly working from abroad, TIGTA found. In 2011, someone using a single mailing address in Lithuania made more tax filings with fraudulent Social Security numbers than any single U.S. address, TIGTA said.
If you're in the mood for a good detective tale, you're going to enjoy this week's cover story. In it, writer Carson Medley chronicles his efforts to retrieve his stolen sunglasses and iPhone, the latter being the more important of the pilfered items. The phone contained more than 1,000 photos of his new baby and wife, and those precious memories had not been backed up. Medley takes us on his journey, during which he grapples with whether to press charges against the thieves, a couple of Chico State students.
USA TODAY's Byron Acohido says that data thieves have installed corrupt checkout terminals at many stores nationwide to steal customers' personal information. Their methods include some creative ruses. The thieves pose as repairmen to install or fix payment terminals and add skimming devices that pick up debit card numbers and PINs.
those trades are only "bad" to the algorithm owner. they should quit cancelling trades. if the software is not for prime time, it should not be running. investors are going to get stung by flash traders OR lose their profit by the "give me your $" machines. if the algorithm takes your $, that's ok. but we don't want the algorithm owners to lose $. there are other sides of these "erroneous" trades. it's happening in derivatives, which affect underlying assets. the SEC needs to take action ON BEHALF of investors. this is a daily occurrence. there are counterparties to these trades. i have never before heard of a "do over" in stock trading, and, worse, only the thieves get the "do over". what a market!
Initial reports of numbers of compromised records in data security breaches are often underestimated. Such appears to be the case in the Global Payments, Inc. incident that we wrote about last month. Initial reports stated that about 1.5 million credit and debit cards were compromised, but it is now believed that the number is closer to 7 million. New information also reveals that thieves could have had access to customer data since last spring. Global Payments was the nation's seventh largest "merchant acquirer" last year, processing $120.6 billion MasterCard and Visa transactions. 041b061a72
