Vendor name in Finance Category

I am doing a BB application for a bank. They want to upload the app into App World Finance category.


As I have known, each vendor name is unique. To prevent hacker to fool user, they will publish vendor name and tell their user only download & install app from BB App World.


Let's assume the vendor name is Research In Motion. If hacker uses Research In Montions to register as vendor name in App World, will RIM approve it ? Since this is finance app and only on character different in vendor name.  


I strongly believe RIM will do something or filter to protect finance application. What say you ???

Re: Vendor name in Finance Category

I'm sure they do a little background research before approving something. A company called Research in Montions would not make the cut.
