  • Publication number: 20200242615
    Abstract: A computer-implemented fraud detection method and system for periodically identifying network associations in a consumer population at a national credit reporting agency and computing associated network level variables related to credit use and potential first party fraud for the consumer population. In response to receiving a request for a target account from among the consumer population the computer-implemented system retrieves credit report for the target account and computes tradeline or account level variables related to credit use and potential fraudulent behavior. A fraud score is calculated based on a combined evaluation of the network level variables and the tradeline or account level variables.

  • Patent number: 5009647
    Abstract: A wc disposable ostomy bag has a wall formed from an inner layer of polyethylene and an outer layer of polyvinyl alcohol. Two flexible layers of aluminum are located between the inner and outer layers to reduce odor transmission through the wall. The material of the walls may be formed by vapor depositing the aluminum layers on respective faces of the inner and outer layers and then laminating the inner and outer layers together with the aluminum layers facing one another. Alternatively, both aluminum layers may be deposited on the same one of the inner or outer layers with a thin non-metallic layer between them to prevent the aluminum layers having common grain boundaries.

  • Patent number: 4702252
    Abstract: A dilatation catheter has a shaft comprising a tube of braided material encapsulated over a major portion of its length in an outer coating of semi-rigid inelastic material. An outer coating of elastic material extends over a minor portion of the length of the shaft at or near its distal end. An inner coating of elastic material is provided over the entire length of the inside of the tube. The distal end portion of the catheter is thereby inflatable by pressure applied from within the shaft to form a balloon. Radio-opaque markers may be provided at each end of the inflatable portion.
