I get this periodically. Last week someone tried to place an order from a server in Iraq, then one in the UK two minutes later, then back to Iraq, six attempts in a row, all going to places like Dubai, Jordan, UAE, etc. Then two weeks ago I had a $650 order from someone with a billing address in Chile, shipping address a Miami forwarder, ordering from Canadian ip, and calling from cellphone in CA. This person actually called me repeatedly as well, wanting to know if I would accept (phoney) money order or Western Union or would I overnight it or could she come and pick it up in person (from 500 miles away). And then there are the "I will like to order" emails. I could create a fraud filter just based on the phrase "I will like to order." I often write back "I will like to know why you will like to steal from me."
