Alibaba, Tencent warn of stolen funds using Apple Ids

From Seeking Alpha

Alibaba’s (BABA +1.7%) Alipay and Tencent’s (OTCPK:TCEHY, OTCPK:TCTZF) say stolen Apple (AAPL +1%) IDs were used to swipe customer funds from the mobile payment services. And the companies say Apple could fix the problem.

Alibaba’s Alipay says it asked Apple “multiple times” to figure out how the thefts happen and that Apple is looking into the matter.

Alipay posted a warning to iPhone users about potential theft. Tencent’s WePay didn’t warn users but issued a similar statement to the media about the issue.

Apple points out instructions on its site for protecting the IDs against fraud, which include two-factor authentication.

WeChat and Alipay handled a combined $15T in mobile transactions last year, according to data firms iResearch and Analysys.

Cayman Islands’ Jolly Roger doesn’t look so jolly

By Georgina Wilcox

The attached photograph was taken around 12 noon today showing the Cayman Islands’ pirate ship, “The Jolly Roger ” aground in George Town.

The photo, courtesy of “Hancock” was taken outside The Lobster Pot.

“The Jolly Roger is a two-thirds replica of Christopher Columbus’ 15th century Galleon Nina, which crossed the Atlantic on three occasions. The Jolly Roger was privately commissioned and built in 1986 in St. Petersburg, Florida, and christened the Lady Barbara. The original owner had such strong feelings for his wife that he had the ship’s figurehead sculpted in her likeness. To this day, Lady Barbara still graces the bow of the Jolly Roger. Then to the current owner, who is passionate about sailing an Pirates, restoring her to her full glory and keeping the dream and imagination of Pirates and chasing the sun alive…. THE JOLLY ROGER”

The galleon doesn’t look so jolly lying there but hopefully it will be jolly again very soon.

Cayman Islands; RCIPS Informs of Accidental Discharge

The RCIPS would like to inform the public that, during a search on the evening of Thursday, 27 September, an accidental discharge of a police firearm occurred.

Hundreds benefit from Cayman Finance Industry Ambassador Programme

Hundreds of people have boosted their knowledge about the Cayman Islands financial services industry and its importance to the local economy and learned why the jurisdiction has become a premier global financial hub through a new initiative launched by Cayman Finance.

The Industry Ambassador Programme featured four e-learning modules: an overview of the Cayman Islands financial services industry; the role of the Cayman Islands financial services industry to the local economy; the role of the Cayman Islands financial services industry to the global economy; and what a tax haven is and why Cayman does not meet that definition. Each module consisted of videos, accompanying material and finally a short quiz to test participants’ knowledge.

Although the platform was targeted mostly to those working at Cayman Finance member firms, it was open to the general public and many other residents of the Cayman Islands participated in the programme.

“I was delighted with the development of the programme, with many of our members utilising the online platform as a way to reinforce factual information about the success of the Cayman model when it comes to developing a well-regulated jurisdiction that has become a global leader in financial services,” said Cayman Finance CEO Jude Scott.

Participants who received an overall grade of 80% or higher were entered into a grand prize draw. Vanessa Hansen of the Cayman Islands Institute of Professional Accountants (CIIPA) was selected from a random draw of Cayman Finance members who met the criteria. She has won a 5-day Caribbean cruise for two. In the draw of non-Cayman Finance members, Simranjit Singh of Global Captive Management won a 2-day local staycation.

“Congratulations to all of those who took part and especially to the winners,” said Bryan Hunter, the chair of Cayman Finance’s Public Awareness Committee. “We look forward to using the online platform that we used for the Industry Ambassador Programme for other purposes, including as a training tool for HR Managers to use for their orientation programmes for new employees.”

 

Migrants arrive at Cayman Islands IDC

GRAND CAYMAN (GIS) – The Cayman Islands Department of Immigration (DOI) has confirmed that the Immigration Detention Centre (IDC) has reopened to accommodate the arrival of 11 Cuban migrants.

The individuals were transferred from Cayman Brac to the Grand Cayman facility yesterday afternoon (Thursday, 4 October 2018).

The group, which consists of nine males and two females, arrived in Cayman Brac on Friday, 28 September 2018, after their broken vessel was sighted by Immigration and Customs officers.

Due to safety concerns, the boat and its occupants were towed to shore, and the group was assessed by local physicians.

Since the closing of IDC, after a group of migrants was released and relocated to approved DOI accommodations, officials have conducted repairs and renovations as necessary to ensure the facility is a safe, suitable, clean and a healthy environment for all occupants.

Licensees are reminded that applications submitted between 2 November 2018 and 31 December 2018 will attract a late charge fee that is 50% higher than the regular renewal rate.

Curator’s Corner
                                                    Untitled (Eve Picking Fruit) by Miguel Powery
Untitled (Eve Picking Fruit) is a lithograph print on paper created by Miguel Powery. This print was made as a result of the National Gallery’s Artist Away grant. The grant generated funds for Miguel Powery and his fellow Caymanian artists (Wray Banker, Gordon Solomon and Hermes Solomon Hydes) to travel to Havana, Cuba. The four artists learned lithograph printing from the Taller Experimental de Grafica workshop, and the Untitled work was one print created by Powery during his time there.
As a member of the Native Sons, a Caymanian art collective, Powery is often known for his devotion to creating images that depict Caymanian culture, often illustrated through subjects about maritime activities. The Untitled print was a shift away from Powery’s usual subjects, and it showed him exploring the Genesis story of Adam and Eve at the moment that Eve is tempted to pick the apple from the Tree of Knowledge. Satan is depicted in the guise of a serpent, which Powery has characterised as a long-tongued and fraudulent character. His choice to explore this biblical narrative alludes to Powery’s interest in other factors that affect Caymanian culture besides maritime traditions.
