    Even the email they used is obviously a catch-all.

    Wait until you get it on a £3200 order like we did last week.

    They wanted items shipped to a freight forwarding company.

    Smart.

    I refunded the card so they can't do a charge back later on, and I'm deff not fulfilling the order.

    I guess I've been dodging bullets this while time. I've heard of shopify store owners have fraud problems, but I didn't know my first one would be this blatantly obvious.

    Better to know it right on the start than get chargeback when goods are shipped. I am personally using prestashop so I dont have this kind of "informations" but it looks good!

    Update: Got 3 more fraud orders this morning.. totally about $300. It appears to be the same person doing it.

    It just sucks and a little depressing hearing you Shopify notification go off just to find out it's a bogus order. >:F

    Well it's just a system warning and there is a low chance it's gonna happen.

    I don t understand why would you worry if the payment was processed?
    As far as you get your money. What the heck?

    Because the bank will take it back off him once he ships the item as a charge back.

    You need to block Tunisia from making orders on your site. It's where most the fraud orders will come from. Morocco should be the second
    country to block. Shipping to there is generally very expensive anyway.

    Could this kind of scam happen if it is a Paypal transaction?

    Mostly not unless you're using Paypal payments pro for accepting credit card payments. Most Paypal transactions are done with Paypal express checkout where customers directly use
    their Paypal accounts to make payments.

    This kind of scam is from customers using stolen credit cards and using merchants such as Shopify payments. There are many underground websites/forums where carders buy and sell
    each others stolen credit cards. They will even sell each other information about websites where successful transactions are possible using the stolen cards. So if you ever do accept an order from
    one of these scammers and actually process their order for whatever reason, they could sell your website to others and you will get flooded with more fraud attempts.

    Oh most definitely, it's a thing all people in the BST section have to be careful of IMHO.

    Thankfully, as a BST seller you begin to notice the early warning signs of a flakey buyer and can quickly drop them before you fulfill that $500 order! It's far safer to decline a payment and drop them an email to say you're busy than take the chance on a claim back.

    Shopify is the same deal, learn to spot the warning signs and decline those payment!

    Would Shopify give a bad rating if you decline a suspected transaction?
