I'm just suggesting that on a per-capita basis fraud is probably the same the world over.
Not in my experience. We ship internationally, and there are certainly countries where the percentage of fraudulent orders is disproportionate.
I've gotten fraudulent orders from many countries (Canada included), but I don't even look twice at orders from Ghana, Nigeria, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and a few others, because virtually ALL orders to those nations are fraudulent (in my niche).
Only a small percentage of my orders from Canada have been fraudulent-a lower percentage than US orders.
