Tired of hearing about credit card fraud? Final is on a quest to stop it by letting you use a unique credit card number on every purchase you make. The YC-backed startup just raised $1M and, as of today, boasts over 38K people on the waitlist to try its product. Final also has a pretty sweet promotional video, courtesy of Sandwich Video.
Credit card startup Final, which is focused on combating fraud online and off while giving consumers more control over their spending, has raised $1 million in seed funding from investors including Ludlow Ventures, T5 Capital Partners, Y Combinator and other fintech angels, in advance of the launch of its 2015 pilot program. Final was founded a year ago by a team whose background includes experience in I.T., mobile payments, and various startups, including Boulder-based Simple Energy. Co-founders Aaron Frank, Matt Rothstein, and Andrew Dietrich say they first came up with the idea for a credit card that better protects against fraud after all becoming victims of the Target data breach in 2013.
