I just wanted to share my latest fraud attempt from a customer.
This guy places an order over $1K USD for a quantity of 8.
Immediately, I know this order is a fraud because I've noticed that every international order I receive the customer always uses my currency converter to change prices to their home currency to submit their order. This guy ends up submitting the order in USD when he states he's from Canada...dead giveaway!
Just more evidence on why this is a fraud order:
- The AVS returned was unavailable.
- CC BIN number is from Germany.
- IP address is from Senegal
- Shipping address is a UPS store in Canada.
- The guy immediately emails me after he submits the order all happy and saying he can't wait to receive his tracking number for his order.
At this point I usually email them back saying it's a suspicious order and to activate the order we would need to see a scanned drivers license and the credit card used in the order. This is the point when I usually never hear from them again.
However, this guy ends up scanning me a CC and drivers license where only the text is crystal clear and everything else on these are blurry like it would be from a scan. And to top it off he put down 2088 as the date issued instead of probably 2008.
I replied back to him again listing if he can explain all these issues; I wonder if I'll hear back from him again? hahahaha...
I can't believe how far people go to try to scam people who are trying to make an honest living; these people have no shame!
