Essentials of fraud-prevention.

Eliminate the risks and costs of fraudulent transactions with this comprehensive checklist

Does the shipping address seem suspicious?

  • It is a high-risk location (vacant property, hotel, country, or location highly known for fraud.)
  • Multiple orders are being shipped to the same address within a short period of time
  • A customer is requesting overnight shipping for an expensive order (i.e. electronics)
  • A customer asks you to change the shipping address after the order has been paid for
