fraud or issues authorizations for the purpose of approving or processing

negotiable instruments, electronic fund transfers, or similar methods of

payment.

(2) A deposit

account information service company, which issues reports regarding account

closures due to fraud, substantial overdrafts, ATM abuse, or similar negative
