I'm curious as to how many of you are seeing a big influx of signups by phishing scammers? We were getting hit so bad that we lost our merchant account for a bit. Oh well, not like PlugAndPay had any real anti-fraud system for us. It was their job to detect and stop it. Anyway, we got it resolved.
Now we moderate ALL signups, and heavily rely on the newly built-in MaxMind.com system. It stops at least one per day. Havent had any fraud signups since then. One a day is a lot though. I am wondering if there is an easier way than moderating all signups?
It's bad when you've been hit so much, Microsoft & others know they can count on you for all the data they need to go after them...lol. At this point I think I'm practically on a first name basis with about half their legal team..
Oh, trust me, I can tell you how to oh so mess them up. I always said they werent very bright. The password they give you during signup is generally the password they use everywhere else too.
Hey btw, I saw a Nigerian scam report on 20/20. Now they are saying they have to make the money black in order to smuggle out of the country, and the chemical to clean them is like $25,000 a batch. etc, etc, etc. Anyway, 20/20 confronted the Nigerians face to face, heh.
