Online Verification against Fraud/Scam

From Bottom to Top
My personal advice will be to build up a scoring system to your online business. It’s not done overnight but can be done by time; either manual or automatic, according to how big your business.

Each of the items I put on the list here, give you a negative point about the order. But again it’s all about experience, quite definitely depends upon your online business and industry you work. For every single item I am telling more, and how to get it done.

Overseas Purchases

Doing overseas business may seem to be advantageous; some good or services may be unavailable locally, so you may hit a rapid demand. But the principle drawback in overseas sales is the fact, you aren’t protected from your own judicial system for an order done from another company.

An address can be checked itself as:

Internet protocol address to Country and in many cases City Check. When order is done, it’s done over a well known IP (If it’s done over a proxy address you can totally discard the order, no requirement to go further). There are numerous solutions that map an IP to Country and City level in address. So the for IP Address umschlüsselung will help
