I have been having a lot of attempted card fraud lately on my site. A lot of it from Indonesia.
Modus Operandi: Address from US / AU. Domain names not registered or registered with no or incorrect contact information. Order is placed from different country than given contact address or through proxies of that country.
I was just wondering what quantity of fraud attempts a web hosting company has on average, say in a month.
What can we do about it besides ignoring or blocking these orders. Are there any governing bodies to which we can report misused IPs ?
If you have real time card processing many of these fraudsters will target you. They will normally try to purchase big ticket items to see how much a card is good for knowing in most cases you will delete the authorization or sale. They then can use or sell the card saying it has this much available.
I would recommend just be very careful and check everyorder that comes in.
About %2-3 of my orders are fraudalent. 2Checkout.com and PayPal have caught them right away and reverse the order just as fast. We're really starting the scrutinize the orders that come through our systems now.
