Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog

Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

All stores have chip reading terminals. Some still use the swipe. Wendy's was hacked

All stores have chip readers installed but a lot of places do not have software in place to use them. 

The Giant Store is the only store that has cat food my cat likes. Giant does not have software for chip card readers, not yet. 

Carrying cash in Coatesville is not a safe option. 

"Three Wendy’s restaurants in Chester County — Thorndale, Kennett Square and Oxford — were among 1,025 franchise locations nationwide where hackers stole customers’ credit and debit card information. 
In a statement, the hamburger chain said hackers were able to access card numbers, names, expiration dates and codes on the cards. Some customers’ cards were used to make fraudulent purchases at other stores." 
Wendy’s restaurants in Kennett Square, Oxford and Thorndale hacked

Some retail and online stores had their software hacked using NSA created backdoors in Microsoft software. This is not what happened to Wendy’s. Wendy’s was a point of sale credit card hack. 

Wendy’s, not the banks are on the hook for identity theft of customers. The rules changed in October. Now stores not the banks have to payback customers:

"Back in October, new network rules went into effect that essentially require merchants who haven’t upgrade to EMV terminals to cover the cost of fraudulent transactions. (Prior to the shift, financial institutions generally covered the cost of fraud.)"
