No Offense! Nothing is 100%. We had a client who had passed through our Fraud Gaurdian account, manual review, and was on our server for a year before we found out he was doing fraud. Recently, we have seen some very smarter fraudster who have gone through alot of trouble to sneak by. We had one guy create a fake ID.
The key to using Max Mind is not to allow it to prevent orders but to set them to pending when the score is high enough. That will allow you to do a manual review. There are probably many orders that do not even need to be looked at that your manual reviewing. Time is money.
