Fed Report Assesses Present and Future of Tokenization for E- and M-Commerce
While Apple Pay has provided the payments industry with some evidence that
tokenization is implementable and scalable, it is an evolutionary process that
still has issues to be addressed, according to a report from the Federal Reserve
Bank of Boston. In addition to establishing viable standards, the Mobile
Payments Industry Workgroup established by the Federal Reserve Banks of Boston
and Atlanta said tokenization, along with the concept of "person/device present"
emerging from mobile commerce provides the industry with an opportunity to
revisit the card-present versus CNP framework for liability and pricing."
MasterCard Continues to Define the Future of Digital Payments with Tokenization
Support for App, eCommerce and Recurring Payment Card-on-File Programs MasterCard
announced it will offer tokenization services to merchants with app, eCommerce,
and recurring billing card-on-file programs, further protecting consumers and
increasing convenience when storing MasterCard cards in merchant databases. By
expanding its Digital Enablement Services (MDES) to serve merchants' needs,
MasterCard continues to lead the industry in securing cardholder credentials -
no matter where they are stored. To speed and simplify the purchase process in
apps and online, consumers have allowed thousands of merchants to store
billions of credit and debit card numbers on their behalf. In addition to
the inherent security risks in the storage of card numbers, when a card account
number changes, consumers are faced with the daunting task of updating payment
information across all of these locations. If they are unsuccessful in
changing the card number, transactions will fail - resulting in potential
interruption in services, lower customer satisfaction and lost sales for the
merchant. The new MasterCard program will enable merchants to harness the
power of MDES to increase security and reduce declines for merchants that store

Arrest made in $400K blender scam tied to local Williams-Sonoma and Bed Bath &
Beyond in Tampa The Secret Service says Kevin Wain used fraudulent
credit cards to buy hundreds of the blenders, as well as Roomba vacuums, which
he sold on eBay at a discount. Wain, 40, was arrested by the Secret Service
and charged with access device fraud, accused of using stolen credit information
to purchase more than $400,000 in merchandise from Williams-Sonoma and Bed, Bath
& Beyond. |
Many of the purchases were made at the Williams-Sonoma in Wesley Chapel,
according to a complaint affidavit filed in U.S. District Court. A company fraud
investigator told the Secret Service that Wain, using the name "Richard Davis,"
made at least 116 purchases totaling more than $166,000 using 106 different
credit cards at that store over a two-year period. He made at least 19 purchases
totaling more than $22,000 using 14 different cards at the Tampa store.
Each time, the first credit card "Davis" tried would be declined, according to
the affidavit. Sometimes, he would have to go through three or four cards before
one would be accepted. The cards didn't have names on them and didn't have
account numbers embossed on them.
From September 2012 to February 2015, Wain sold 755 Vitamix blenders on eBay for
a total profit of $399,713, according to the affidavit. From March 2013 to
February 2015, he sold 197 Roomba vacuums for more than $91,000, according to
the affidavit. He also sold nine Dyson DC41 vacuums for more than $3,400.

An Iowa mall security guard allegedly opened fire and killed a young woman
working at a children's museum inside a shopping center following weeks of what
friends described as disturbing, "scary and weird” behavior. The young woman,
who was an employee of the mall's children's museum, was working at the mall's
information desk around 7:30 p.m. when Kozak, armed with a 9mm Glock handgun,
shot her three times in the back. The sound of gunfire sent the mall into a
panic as a police officer, who was at the shopping center for an unrelated call,
rushed to the scene. The guard Kozak, who was married in September, displayed
disturbing behavior towards blond, blue-eyed Farrington, a cousin of the victim
said. He'd leave notes on Farrington's car, often stared at her at work and
would "just be scary and weird." nydailynews.com

Education is a broad term usually defined by an
individual as a singular focus with an end result that oftentimes stagnates the
brain and limits horizons. Reaching milestones is incredibly important, but
keeping your curiosity and wonderment is the key to reaching beyond. No singular
degree or certification will bring you the success - it merely opens the door to
more learning and the realization that if you don't know something, you go find
someone who does and learn it from them.
