WHY READ THIS BLOG POST?
Credit card fraud costs online retailers millions each year in lost revenue and stolen goods. The problem is growing and it’s only a matter of time before you are the target of a fraudster (a.k.a sh*t-bag). In this post, I’m going to teach you how to protect yourself as a small online retailer and how to handle fraudulent orders if you receive them via credit or debit card. I also have a big rant at eBay for being fecking useless and a dig at the anti-fraud police for lack of action.
“The best way to battle credit card fraud is to be vigilant and not take risks. Don’t let the bastards win.”
