Wirecards new customer: Home-center Segmueller

Wirecard has a new costumer. The german home-center Segmüller will allow Wirecard to process the invoice of its customers. The cashless process will be possible with smartphone or credit card. Wirecard will not only make available the payment-technology, it will be responsible for the complete payment.

The assetts of Wirecard are falling the last weeks although the revenue of the last quarter of 2018 increases by 36% to 637,5mio€ and the profit rose by 37% to 172,9mio€.

But reports of Financial Times and various lawyers, including Hagens Berman, say that Wirecard has misleaded investors by accounting bogus deals. The police raid the bureau of Wirecard in Singapure. Wirecard denies any wrong doing.

Hagens Berman is the counsel that has indicted several consolidated companies including the german car producers in dieselgate scandal.

Meanwhile the Bafin forbid Wirecard sell off positions because the assett has become to volatile.

Baltimore makes ceasefire with organized crime

The City of Baltimore is with Chicago and Detroit on of the cities in America with the highest rate of violence. This year the number of murderings is with 206 killing suntiol now on a pace to break the record of 353 in 1993.

So the 44-year-old community mediation trainer Ericka Bridgefort and other activists decided to organize a grassroots „ceasefire“ to stop the killings, at least for 72 hours, starting at midnight on Thursday (0400 GMT on Friday) to stop the killings. The drug cartells of the city support this initiative. Ms Bridgefort lost 20 of her relatives and friends in the fight against drug gangs.

But is it not the order of the police to ensure that the people of a city are living in security?

Is it really the right way to deal ceasefires with drug gangs to make cities secure for some hours?

If this issue develope that way we should think about suppporting the way the Phillippine Präsident Duterte goes declaring war at the drug  cartells so that situations like this will not happen and stop organized crime. Organized crime is not OK. The companies, GO’s and NGO’s shouldn’t work with this mechanism. The German Agenda 2010 should be rethought, related to this issue.  As we don’t need ceasefires with drug cartells, so we should think about politics and laws which makes organized crimes unnecessary.
