The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB, has fined U.S. Bancorp $9M and has ordered the company to pay $47.9M in restitution to customers for selling identity-theft products with out providing the full benefits of the products. In a statement, the CFPB said, "The billing of Identity Protection Product fees and acceptance of payments of such fees while failing to provide credit monitoring and credit report retrieval services has resulted in substantial injury to approximately 420,115 consumers in the amount estimated to be $47.9M for identity protection products. This injury was not reasonably avoidable by consumers and is not outweighed by any countervailing benefit to the consumers or to competition. Within 10 days of the effective date, the Bank must reserve or deposit into a segregated deposit account $47.9M, which represents the approximate amount of customer injury caused by the practices described in Section V, for the purpose of providing redress to affected customers as required by this Section."

05:31 EDTJPMVisa to undertake assessment of stake in Monitise
Visa (V) and Monitise entered into an alliance agreement in 2009. At the same time, Visa began investing in Monitise. Given the maturation of Monitise as a company, Visa is considering its options with respect to the investment and has engaged J.P. Morgan Securities (JPM) to assist. Visa will also be lessening its dependence on external mobile development resources. In 2009, in conjunction with its commercial partnership, Visa invested in Monitise as a 14.4% owner of the company in order to provide capital support to a leader in the evolution of the mobile payments sector. Over time, Visaís holdings have been reduced to its current 5.5% stake in the company. This reduction in ownership and associated influence is consistent with Visaís investment practice to seed emerging players and, over time, taper that influence as the partner company grows. Under their agreement, Monitise will provide Visa with mobile platform development services through 2016. As both Visa and the payments industry evolve at a rapid pace, Visa intends to continue increasing its investment in its own in-house capabilities and, as a result, reducing its use of external resources.
