Webhost vs Online FraudPosted by Cap on September 12, 2005 |
I mentioned in my last post about Dreamhost’s blog (it’s a webhost company). I usually like to read blogs like this becase it gives an interesting inside look (even if it’s just a wee bit) of how a company and its employee tick.
Here’s a good post from them about how 20% of their daily sign-up are done with stolen credit cards.
This reminds me of an article from the WSJ a few weeks back. The article talked about how small and mid size business has to deal with an increasing number of online fraud. The particular online jewlery store mentioned sold and shipped out a $30,000 watch, only to realize too late that the CC numbers are fake! This was after an extensive research and check up. Ouch!
Remember, consumer’s aren’t the only ones plauged with identity theft problems!
