Notes

This may be the same company as "First Data Solutions, Inc." which was sued to prevent it from selling cellphone numbers: "Several wireless providers, including T-Mobile, Verizon and Cingular, filed earlier lawsuits against records brokers, with Cingular winning an injunction against First Data Solutions and 1st Source Information Specialists on Jan. 13."

2007-10-20 Received wikispam with a link to peace.com. That web page, in turn, claims to be the home page of "FirstData Utilities", a firm whose logo is identical with that of FirstData Corporation (FDC). The page does not look at all like FDC's actual home page. Also, they resolve to different IP addresses: peace.com = 63.111.58.253, firstdata.com = 204.124.84.80. The "peace.com" page seems to be advertising a product called "Peace® Customer Information System (CIS)", which may be why they registered the domain name (probably paying an absurd sum for it, too, given that it's both short and a dictionary word).

A whois on "peace.com" reveals that it is owned by "The Cuvier Trust", about which there does not seem to be any further information. --Woozle 19:44, 20 October 2007 (EDT)
