Unfortuantely, if you check your contracts with the various payment providers, MOST of them have a clause regarding Arbitration. Their decisions are just like a court decision. The thought process by the designer was that it was an open and shut case with all sorts of documentation, but Visa didn't even look at most of it and still favored the client.

Just installed fraud record and spent a good hour submitting all my fraud clients into the database. I hope it helps others.

we use Maxmind along with their telephone verification service, but some fraudsters still get through.

what i mean by that is you get some that will pass the maxmind fraud checks and pay their initial fees, but fail to pay their next invoices and becomes abusive etc. when their services are suspended/terminated for non payment.

this is fraud in my eyes as they are expecting the services for free, so they are marked fraud, invoices passed to debt agency and they are reported to fraudrecord

Maximind is not that great, and the telephone verification can just loose you potential clients who are not fraudsters, just out of being lazy.

I have done it myself, 'oh can't be bothered with this'

I have not had any problems with Maxmind or their telephone verification working as they should. since we started using their telephone verification service fraud orders have dropped 80% and we have not seen any drop in normal orders.

just some fraudsters are getting crafty and will use details that pass the maxmind fraud checks and then try and get away later on without paying invoices.

MaxMind's phone verification is great. The only problem is how to teach the customers to enter their phone number in the correct format.
And the correct format is: without the international dialing code and without any leading zeroes. I.e. customers from UK should enter just their number, then MaxMind will automatically add +44 and call them.

my customers seem to know how to do this, the problems that my customers seem to have is how to listen. the times i have had tickets opened saying " the code was said fast and i did not have time to remember or write it down"

Strange, i have tried MaxMind several times myself (made it call my cell number, there is such function on their website) and it sounded good. Was not too fast or mangled or something. And it is just 4 digits, which are also repeated twice. Hardly a challenge.
And i am not a native English speaker, so i wonder why your customers (presumably mostly from the UK) had such problems.
