On February 25th, 2015 Mr. Garza posted on the Hashtalk forums a screenshot of an email that he purports is the start of a partnership with MasterCard.
In multiple forum posts Mr. Garza would state in a thread title, I love good news in the morning
The posts from Mr. Garza implied a partnership had been verbally committed in regards to PayCoin. He would also clarify that it was Paycoin who had a deal with MasterCard.
Two members of the Coin Fire team reached out to MasterCard asking about the partnership and received a statement from Mr. Seth Eisen from the MasterCard Corporate and Public Affairs Communications department stating,
I want to clarify that MasterCard does not have a relationship with PayBase/PayCoin.
While Mr. Garza or his affiliates could potentially be working with a MasterCard branded bank for the debit card it however is not working directly with MasterCard as implied by Mr. Garza’s posts on the HashTalk forums.
