Verizon abandons plan to charge $ 2 for online bill payments
News from Apple Insider:

By Slash Lane

Published: 02:41 PM EST (11:41 AM PST)
After being met with public backlash and potential government scrutiny, Verizon Wireless has abandoned its plans to charge customers a $ 2 service fee for paying their bill online.

“I already am a farmer,” he replied.

While investors worry about important known risks, one little discussed amorphous risk lurks in the background that could do great damage to portfolios, and potentially to the standard of living for those who have completed the accumulation stage of their financial lives. That risk is a catastrophic level of cyberattack on financial institutions.

Top worries in the news are generally (1) European nations defaulting and their banks failing, (2) the United States digging itself into a deeper financial hole, and (3) the ability of China to continue to grow rapidly in a world of slowing economic growth at the same time that they have overbuilt much infrastructure with loans from banks that may not be able to be repaid.

The top worries are ones that are well known and that have substantial probabilities of developing in a way to overcome the good things that are going on. They are visible and evolving risks. Cyberattack, on the…………… continues on Seekingalpha.com
