There is no text that will "stop" a scammer from signing up and trying to rip you off or steal email services, etc...
They don't care what you write.
You are better to implement either a manual confirmation (phone call to verify the order) or automated system (fraud guardien, etc..) to help you find and stop hackers before they are able to copmlete the application and charge the stolen card.

Originally posted by Dan Grossman Haven't seen a good one, because anything that would scare a scammer would scare off your legitimate customers too.
I agree, those who wish to use FRAUD Cards wont be scared of such text stuff.
Thats the reason why you wont see any such warning on any hosting site.

The best way to enforce anti-fraud, in my opinion, is through software implementation of your shopping cart. Nothing beats the hell out of scammers like catching them in the act and they won't be able to checkout successfully. If they have all the credit card, physical & billing address, IP address, and etc. information verified 100% then the best way is to use Industrial strengh technologies like Verified by Visa and Mastercard SecureCode because those will guard you against fraud all the time. When you get a chargeback through VbV or MSC, the credit card companies won't hassle you but the cardholder.
I agree that VbV and MSC are definitely good technologies - just keep in mind that there are limitations on the chargeback reason codes that they protect against.
They also provide virtually no protection on recurring transactions as those transactions would not be able to make use of Cardholder Authentication unless you did it via invoice and had your client log in to pay each time.
On a more universal basis, I'm definitely an advocate of phone verification - whether manual or automated. There are lots of great options available these days such as FraudGate and other systems that make it very cost effective for even the smallest business to gain the benefits of automated phone-based order verifications.
Add in services like MaxMind for the IP-based verification along with AVS & CVV and perhaps some negative database/settlement level fraud detection and you'll have the makings of a top notch system to reduce your order acceptance risk.
