DALLAS, Texas, Oct. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- JDP Enterprises Publishing announces release of the second book in the Surfing Payment Channels series, "Mastering the Fraud Tsunami" (ISBN: 978-0-9788698-1-6). The series is being produced by financial services executive and payments expert, James D. Pitts. The series focuses on changes in the payments system as it evolves from paper to paperless.

New technology and a growing demand for flexibility, convenience and control on a real-time basis are forcing the evolution of traditional payments system capabilities. These pressures are causing re-engineering of the highly complex and ever so crucial set of systems that support the economic health of commercial society. With these changes a tsunami wave of invasive criminal fraud attacks is emerging. These crimes exploit weak points in financial service transactions to violate privacy, gain access and steal financial assets.

Visionary organizations and individuals are working to invent new payment channel alternatives to meet changing needs. In parallel, organized criminals have been systematically creating ways to break through associated security and steal identities, account information and significant sums of money. These crimes impact many people and businesses, with potentially devastating results.

"Surfing Payment Channels, Mastering the Fraud Tsunami" provides insights from leading payment fraud prevention experts about what is being done and what the future may see relative to mitigating these fraudulent activities. Learn more about the book at: .

Pitts, who has been a financial services technology executive for three decades, now works with the FSTC at the Financial Services Roundtable in Washington D.C. driving projects focused on utilizing better technology and process to support financial services industry improvements.
