Got a fraud order this evening. The criminal was attempting to order myfratzia.org along with hosting services. He/she ordered under the name Anne Boucher. I checked out the website for their email [email protected] - http://www.fratzia.net and found some foriegn language links and MP3 stuff. Suspicsion #1. So I check the IP for the order. The IP is 126.96.36.199 from Romainia Hmmmm, a Romainian with a U.S. address. Suscpiscion #2. Finally I checked the phone. It was a Bermudian area code. Definately fishy. I looked up the woman on SwitchBoard. I found her real number and debated giving her a call. It was 11:00 p.m. Quite late, but if this was a fradulent order, I wanted to let her know ASAP. So I called and sure enough, she had no idea who I was.
This is my first fradulent order. I hear that the card companies don't seem to take much interest in pursuing these criminals. What suggestions do you have in who to contact for reporting this information? I'd like to be proactive helping to catch these guys, but I don't want to waste my time submitting information to a place that couldn't care less.
Yep, I considered the information I had and what I was going to release. If I had any doubt, I wouldn't have posted. And I didn't post unecessary details, or anything that would release personal information about Anne (like her address or phone number, etc.).
