Western Union Pays $586M Fine Over Wire Fraud Charges

The head of the FTC says Western Union "facilitated scammers and rip-offs," while the company "looked the other way." An anonymous reader quotes Reuters: The world's biggest money-transfer company agreed to pay $586 million and admitted to turning a blind eye as criminals used its service for money laundering and fraud, U.S. authorities said on Thursday. Western Union, which has over half a million locations in more than 200 countries, admitted "to aiding and abetting wire fraud" by allowing scammers to process transactions, even when the company realized its agents were helping scammers avoid detection, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission said in statements... Fraudsters offering fake prizes and job opportunities swindled tens of thousands of U.S. consumers, giving Western Union agents a cut in return for processing the payments, authorities said. Between 2004 and 2012, the Colorado-based company knew of fraudulent transactions but failed to take steps that would have resulted in disciplining of 2,000 agents, authorities said... Between 2004 and 2015 Western Union collected 550,928 complaints about fraud, with 80 percent of them coming from the United States where it has some 50,000 locations, the government complaint said. The average consumer complaint was for $1,148, the government said. Reuters seemed to suggest that nearly one out of every thousand transactions was fraudulent, reporting that Western Union "said consumer fraud accounts for less than one-tenth of 1 percent of consumer-to-consumer transactions."

Three States Propose DMCA-Countering 'Right To Repair' Laws

Automakers are using the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to shut down tools used by car mechanics -- but three states are trying to stop them. An anonymous reader quotes IFixIt.Org: in 2014, Ford sued Autel for making a tool that diagnoses car trouble and tells you what part fixes it. Autel decrypted a list of Ford car parts, which wound up in their diagnostic tool. Ford claimed that the parts list was protected under copyright (even though data isn't creative work) -- and cracking the encryption violated the DMCA. The case is still making its way through the courts. But this much is clear: Ford didn't like Autel's competing tool, and they don't mind wielding the DMCA to shut the company down... Thankfully, voters are stepping up to protect American jobs. Just last week, at the behest of constituents, three states -- Nebraska, Minnesota, and New York -- introduced Right to Repair legislation (more states will follow). These 'Fair Repair' laws would require manufacturers to provide service information and sell repair parts to owners and independent repair shops. Activist groups like the EFF and Repair.org want to "ensure that repair people aren't marked as criminals under the DMCA," according to the site, arguing that we're heading towards a future with many more gadgets to fix. "But we'll have to fix copyright law first."

'IT Issue' Grounded All United Airlines Flights In The US

For two and a half hours -- no take-offs. An anonymous reader quotes NBC News: All of United Airlines' domestic flights were grounded Sunday night because of a computer outage, the Federal Aviation Administration said as scores of angry travelers sounded off on social media... U.S. officials told NBC News that the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, or ACARS, had issues with low bandwidth. No further explanation was immediately available for what United described only as "an IT issue." An hour ago United tweeted that they'd finally lifted the stop and were "working to get flights on their way." 66 flights were cancelled just at Chicago's O'Hare Airport, the Chicago Department of Aviation told the Associated Press, and though the article doesn't identify the total number of flights affected, "Chicago-based United Airlines and United Express operate more than 4,500 flights a day to 339 airports across five continents."

Ask Slashdot: Should Commercial Software Prices Be Pegged To a Country's GDP?

Here's a bright idea from dryriver Why don't software makers look at the average income level in a given country -- per capita GDP for example -- and adjust their software prices in these countries accordingly? Most software makers in the U.S. and EU currently insist on charging the full U.S. or EU price in much poorer countries. "Rampant piracy" and "low sales" is often the result in these countries. Why not change this by charging lower software prices in less wealthy countries? This presupposes the continuing existence of closed-source software businesses -- but is there a way to make that pricing more fair? Leave your best suggestions in the comments. should commercial software prices be pegged to a country's GDP?

潘基文:若民眾信任將比任何一屆總統更包容地接觸選民

卸任聯合國秘書長的潘基文表示,是否在南韓組黨、抑或加入現有政黨,正與政界元老討論,很快做出决定。他說,今次大選應該大團結和推動政治改革,若得到民眾信任,他將比任何一屆總統更為廣泛、包容地接觸國民,與國民對話,尋求和解與妥協。他強調政治改革的重要性,自己與前總統李明博及現任總統朴槿惠政權無關。潘基文接受《韓聯社》專訪時表示,應該修改南韓憲法,讓目前五年換屆的總統選舉和四年一任的國會選舉同步舉行。他指出,兩個選舉周期不一致,令社會兩三年就因為選舉而分裂重演,認為要實現團結與和解,兩者應同步。

全國政協原副主席蘇榮受賄濫用職權罪成 判無期徒刑

全國政協原副主席蘇榮被判受賄、濫用職權、巨額財產來源不明等罪成,處以無期徒刑,剝奪政治權利終身並沒收個人全部財產。蘇榮當庭表示服從法院判決,不會上訴。據山東濟南市中級人民法院審理的案情指,蘇榮在2002至2014年利用職權上的便利,為他人謀取利益、濫用職權,令公共財產和國家人民利益遭受重大損失,他本人或通過他人收受財物合計1.16億元人民幣,而他對共8027萬多元的財產不能說明來源。法院鑑於蘇榮如實供述自己的罪行,主動交代辦案機關並未掌握的部分犯罪事實及認罪悔罪,所有贓款亦全數追繳,具有法定從輕處罰情節,故輕判無期徒刑。

日本宮古島市長成功連任 贊成部署陸上自衛隊

日本沖繩縣宮古島市市長選舉,贊成當地部署陸上自衛隊、71歲的自民黨現任市長下地敏彥成功連任。分析相信,結果對力阻美軍普天間機場搬遷至沖繩縣名護市的縣知事翁長雄志來說,是重大打擊。共同社報道,下地敏彥擊敗翁長雄志支持、由日本民進黨推薦的奧平一夫,令縣內11名市長中,僅剩那霸和名護兩市的市長支持翁長,其餘9個市都與中央政府步調一致。日本政府前年為應對中國的海洋活動,計劃在鹿兒、沖繩兩縣部署陸上自衛隊。下地敏彥以「確保國民安全」為由,接納部署。
