I'm interested in how or what products people use to minimise fraud risk on on line transactions.
Third Man and my instinct based on experience.
I won't list them here because I don't want fraudsters to see it, but they do follow a pattern which is very easy to spot when you have had a few. Quite often they give it away just from the contents of their basket alone without the other 6 things.
True, I'm not keen to keen to give away my 'tells' either.
you can PM your list to him
I'm not sure that he wants it. Isn't he more interested in the commercial systems such as 3rd Man?
Happy to PM list.
Yes, I'm really interested in whether online retailers use a 3rd party application or facility to check their online transactions, or if they just rely on gut instinct.
I have maxmind on one of my billing platforms but, as most of my clients tend to call me to discuss their needs I get a very low fraud (non existent) attempt rate.
However, with the upswing in domain registrations I am considering automating the domain purchases, but have been advised that this is an area of concentration of card fraud although I really cannot see it being a worthwhile exercise and will be happily corrected if someone knows different.
So, I think its an important subject that doesn't really get discussed (until after the event, normally).
If your saying why would a fraudster register a domain with fraudulent card details the answer is botnet owners, fake bank sites, malware site etc etc. These are often short lived so by the time the fraud is detected and charged back the site is most likely to have been deaded already.
