This Week In Credit Card News: Voice Identification To Fight ID Theft, Rubio’s Card Use Under Fire

How Your Voice Can Protect You from Credit Card Fraud Some banks are using voice biometrics and other technology to help determine who is calling and where a call is coming from. The reason: call-in center fraud is surging. The internet used to be a treasure trove for scammers, but financial institutions caught on and increased security, causing fraudsters to shift gears. New credit card technology has shifted criminals toward call-in centers, as chip-enabled cards are difficult to copy and replicate. Call-in centers remain a point of vulnerability. To help combat the fraud, some banks are using voice biometrics. Just like your fingerprint, your voice has characteristics that make it unique.

10-inch Amazon Kindle Fire shows up in leaked benchmark result with mediocre specs

Earlier today, a couple of leaked press renders showed that Amazon is working on a 10-inch Kindle Fire with a modified design language. Interestingly, the renders showed that the new Kindle Fire might run a redesigned version of Fire OS, Amazon’s forked Android version.

At the time, the hardware specs of the tablet were pretty much unknown. Coincidentally, just hours later, a new 10-inch Kindle Fire was discovered in the GFX Bench database, complete with most of the specifications. If these specs turn out to be accurate, Amazon’s upcoming 10-inch slab will be a mid-range offering.

DC Fire inspector accepts plea in fraud charges

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — Former D.C. Fire inspector Kimberley Pinkney, who is accused of misusing work credit cards, accepted a plea agreement Monday. Pinkney is charged with second-degree felony fraud for misusing government credit cards. Investigators said Pinkney used gas cards that were intended for fueling up her work vehicle to buy gas for her personal car, as well as other things. The amount was more than $11,000 dollars. PREVIOUS STORY: DC Fire employees investigated for fraud Investigators said the fraud occurred over a three year period. Suspicious activity such as filling up more gas than the vehicle could take and getting gas more than once a day raised red flags. Pinkney could face up to three years and be forced to pay restitution. Terrell McCray, another D.C. Fire employee, is also facing fraud charges. His case is still pending. Pinkney’s sentencing is set for May 5th. Pinkney was arrested in January following an investigation. Officials say she has since resigned from the D.C. Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services. The investigation revealed that during July 7, 2011 through Dec. 10, 2014, Pinkney purchased gasoline at three Southeast Washington gas stations on more than 200 occasions. The charges total $11,334, […]

Atlanta Falcons fire head coach Mike Smith

FalconsDuring a press conference today in Atlanta, Falcons owner, Arthur Blank discussed his recent decision to terminate head coach Mike Smith.

Blank described this year’s season as “disappointing,” yet he gracefully expressed his admiration for his colleague and friend, Mike Smith.

“Including my 23 years at The Home Depot, this is probably the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make.”

Even though the decision to release Coach Smith was tough, Blank explained that the Franchise is in transition and is moving in the direction to bring home winning titles for their home town.

“We need to win championships and put rings on all of our fans, city of Atlanta and state of Georgia.”

Although Smith has won two division titles and led the Falcons to post season games four times throughout his seven year stint with the organization, the last two seasons have been disappointing for the Franchise as a whole. However, Coach Mike Smith remains the most successful coach in Falcons Franchise history with a record of 66-46 and 1-4 in post season.

“It’s not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of fact that Smitty was the most successful coach in franchise history,” said Blank.

Smith joined the Atlanta Falcons in January 2008 soon after Bobby Petrino resigned after 13 games and transitioned the team quickly. Smith guided the Falcons to the second-most wins in a season in team history, the top record in the NFC with a 13-3 mark and an NFC South Division crown in 2010. The 13 victories also secured the number one seed in the Conference for only the second time in franchise history and the Division title was just the fourth ever for the team in 45 years in the league (and first since 2004). In Smith’s first year, the Falcons were one of the NFL’s biggest surprises, notching 11 wins after earning just four the previous year. The Falcons’ 13 wins in the regular season in 2010 was the team’s highest mark since its 1998 Super Bowl season.
