really? nobody else is getting these? come on guys .. if you get a fraudulent order, post the thief's info here.. this thread is already indexed by google. All we'll have to do is google an email address of a questionable order and we'll find it here if we warn each other (this already happened once).

One of the shops we supply in the UK had problems with some of the above mentioned UK addresses too.
From what he told me neither the card companies nor Police showed any interest in following it up even though they could have caught the guys red handed as one of the shipments was about to be delivered. Would have been a very easy stake out to see who signs for it and catch him/her in the act but like I said, no interest from the Police at that point.
The strange thing is that the card numbers match the addresses but the money gets charged back.

UK Police and banks are shit at helping out small shops and online retailers at stopping this fraudulent behaviour.

I have a friend who used to have an online western clothing business which did decent enough for turnover. He had an order for custom boots from a guy credit card checked out and he had the cash for 3 months while the boots were made in the states. A month after they were delivered the credit card company charges him £6000 for dodgy card transactions. The police knew the guy who placed the order was doing this stuff but didnt want to know and the banks would not ban the guy from cards.

He ended up owing £16,000 over 3 bad orders and had to go into voluntary liquidation so I feel for anyone that this happens to
