Service of mobile devices dominates Alipay

Mobile phone based transactions continued to maintain strong momentum last year among the users of Alipay, the third-party online platform affiliated to Ant Financial, a branch of Jack Ma's Alibaba.

According to a report released by Alipay on Jan. 4, about 71 percent of the transactions among 450 million users registered with real names on Alipay last year were completed by cell phones. Users born in the 1980s and 1990s were the most prolific consumers with the average annual spend of a single person born in the 1980s surpassing 120,000 yuan (US$17,500) and 91 percent of post-1990s paid their bills simply by moving index fingers.

The dominant mobile payment system has expanded radically from big cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, to the hinterlands including Tibet, Qinghai and Gansu provinces. Meanwhile, Tibet has secured a top position for five years in a row for the rate of Alipay's mobile device service which accounted for 90 percent of local online transactions last year.

Has anyone had a phone call from a group called Affiliated Financial Services?

They claim to be able to reduce my interest rate on my credit card by a one time payment of $995. It sounds like fraud to me, but I need a little bit of guidance. Help?
