Here is what a typical fraudulent order looks like

 

Buyer/Billing Information
==============
First name: Gezhkp

E-mail: gefihibidyfe@hotmail.com
Phone: 412848****
Billing Address:

IP Address: 23.229.5.110

Shipping Information

WILMINGTON, DE 19803
United States
Phone: 412848****
Shipping Method: CUSTOM_PRICE_PER_UNIT

Payment Information
==============
Payment Processor: PayPal Pro (DirectPayment)
Transaction ID: *******
Invoice: *****
E-junkie Internal Transaction ID: *******
Total: 1795.00 USD (Inclusive of Shipping & Handling: 0.00 and Sales Tax & VAT: 0.00)
Card Type: MASTERCARD
Card Last 4: ****

 

Way too many things wrong with this one. What's most interesting is that the Mail Boxes Etc (that's where it's headed) claims that this box is held by a big Chinese shopping service that makes purchases for customers and then fills a container to ship by sea. They just failed to mention (or they don't know) that they use stolen credit cards to do it.

 

Reporting this kind of stuff is actually useless because I'm not considered a victim of any crime (unless I sacrifice a $1800 pair of headphones) so no action can take place

the credit card billing zip code matches the address of the Mail Boxes Etc. they find a place to ship a package in every zip code so the order shows that the billing zip code matches

 

i've actually had a couple of these before, i wonder if they are computer generated. they do tend to originate in China while the Russians use mules
