Dans cette course aux solutions de paiement, voici un retour d’expérience  pour Starbucks  stoppé net à  cause de risque de fraude évident.

If you've been reading the internet regularly this week, you're probably familiar with Jonathan's card, a “social payment experiment” amounting to a public Starbucks gift card. You might have bought a coffee with it. You might have contributed to it. You might have suspected it of being a Starbucks viral (it isn't).

What you probably haven't done is set up a script to skim money off the card in order to use it for your own nefarious purposes. And by “nefarious purposes,” I mean feeding starving children in Africa. Here comes the ethics!

Sam Odio, who sold Divvyshot to Facebook last year and is currently working on launching Freshplum, whatever that is, has detailed a hack he put together that rather subverts the Jonathan's card philosophy. Uninspired by the admittedly uninspiring premise of “yuppies buying yuppies coffees,” he set up a script that checks the card's balance and alerts him whenever it hits a given amount. He then transfers the money to his own card. Just today he's “earned” $625.
