Fraudsters

Here, we will list those individuals who try to, or manage to perpetrate  credit card or PayPal fraud on us.  I will ask retailers to add to this so that we start to help each other not get scammed.

I know the names are probably fictitious, but that matters not.

Two of these same "names" have also tried to hit us, but they've never been able to get through our fraud detection program.

ade sholeh hidayat - PayPal - Indonesia
Mohd Azizi - Credit Card - Malaysia
Allan Danuwidjaja - Credit Card - Indonesia
Nor Azam Said - Chose to pay by bank transfer and did not bother sending the money - Malaysia

Loads of people have tried the "I'll pay by bank wire" option and then never sent the money.  We assume because they are stupid enough to think we'll send the goods before we get the transfer.  Unfortunately, this has resulted in us closing the pay bay bank transfer option.

We have also implemented and "If your address is in Indonesia or Malaysia, we will not accept your order" policy.  But, if you get in touch with us or are a repeat good customer, get in touch and we can sort you out.

We have had about 6 successful frauds against us in 11 years trading, so we have not done too badly.  But the overhead taken to manage out the bad guys is a pain in the arse. 

A decent fraudster can work out a CVC code and expiry date from a Visa card in 6 seconds.

That's absolutely insane that it's that easy for them.

I know all our software for client management had gotten really confusing, to the point that I have no control (and can provide no assistance) over a clients credit card on file once they input it into to our system. Tokenization is great, but I guess it's still not a perfect process.

Interesting... I was under the impression that Visa was safer than MC since a lot of banks have recently
Dropped MC as their card of choice and swapped to Visa - but I bet that matters more about batch and swipe costs than anything else..
