A vote of confidence

The following note was e-mailed to Jason Felts in response to his inaugural Street SmartsSM article "A passion to share," The Green Sheet, issue 08:04:01, April 14, 2008:

I am writing to you today in appreciation of the article you wrote in Street Smarts. Being a salesman here at Merchant Warehouse, I could relate to it directly. It held in it different aspects of things that I take away from each call, as well as applicable things I could apply to the next person I speak with.

I think merchant processing has many similarities to religions that exist right now: There are many to choose from; there is always someone saying that somebody else is wrong or their choice is better. I liked your adage about the dog; it was a great read. I appreciate your articles, and I look forward to reading more soon.

Christopher Burns

Thank you for taking the time to compliment Jason Felts' article. He has a unique voice, and we look forward to helping him share his wisdom and enthusiasm with our readers in the coming year.


Verity from Veratad

I wanted to thank you for the mention in your lead article entitled "Fraud busting, electronic style," The Green Sheet, May 12, 2008, issue 08:05:01. I did want to point out that there was a bit of an error as it pertains to what Veratad validates.

The following is what the article stated: "On the online identity verification front, AgeMatch, IDMatch and IDMatch+Plus from Englewood, N.J.-based Veratad Technologies LLC can authenticate the validity of financial institutions when sensitive cardholder information is requested over the Internet."

Veratad is able to validate individuals and for financial institutions, but we do not validate the validity of a financial institution.

We apologize for the error and have fixed our online version of the magazine. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We appreciate the contributions you and other industry experts made to the article in question, as well as your ongoing support for our efforts to inform, educate and inspire those who choose to carve a career in the payments space.
