We're just recently had a rash of attempted fraudulent online orders this week, all shipping to what would appear to be a business in detroit michigan. However it's really what appears to be a residential apartment complex of some sort.

Anyhow, thankfully we use a service that tracks this type of behavior and were flagged in our system as coming from an open proxy and that the address and email they were using were tracked to other fraudulent orders from other merchants.

Be wary this up coming holiday season. Tis the season to be theiving!

I know that we cannot talk about what service I use, but it's really cheap and saved us a fortune over the last few years. You can PM me if you like.

Mods, can we get an exception so that we can share this anti-fraud provider? It seems like its one of the better ones out there for a low cost (something like $0.01) per check.

In the meantime if anyone wants the details of this provider them can sticky mail me.

Note that I have no affiliation with this company I am talking about, but have been using them for years and have heard great things about them from others (including Bewenched)
