EBay Inc. said it's buying Fraud Sciences, a privately held Israeli online risk tool provider, for $169 million in cash. EBay said it's buying the firm to boost eBay and PayPal's proprietary fraud management systems.

So, with the buy out, I wonder if they'll bring that business to the U.S. or keep it in Israel. If they keep it there, that will be just one more thing that we're outsourcing. The effect the outsourcing has on Customer Assurnace and GDP?
