    Thumbs up Web hosts: Watch out for this order

    Hello everyone,

    I thought I'd make this thread about an order we just received that automatically triggered a case with PayPal:

    Email used: [email protected]


    Web hosting account: (most expensive plan)
    Domain registrations:,

    This user also ordered 2 more addons for the total of over $75.


    The reason for making this thread is to warn others that you will receive a fee if you don't manage to remove the invoice before it's paid (with PayPal at least).

    Due to the domains and the fact that kastamns . gov . my shows a warning page from Google I refunded the payment but by that time I already received a cancellation fee from PayPal and was unable to submit my response to the claim during the process. Everything else looked genuine:

    - no bad history from the IP address
    - no bad history from the email address
    - Maxmind passed easily (0.1% score)
    - Genuine address
    - Matching PayPal + signup email

    Hopefully by posting this thread it will be found quickly by any future hosts that are unfortunate enough to receive this order.

    it's unusuall for them to pass maxmind testing, i've had a few orders that are instantly flagged as fraud and wait to be manually vetted (most are fraud)
