only they know why.
a few years back i used to sell PCs and Computer Inks and had a couple of customers in Africa with one of them having a store and purchased in bulk and always paid. 1 day i got an order for a PC from a guy in Africa and he passed all checks to be legitimate, the payment went through, so i ordered the PC which was delivered to me for me to send onto him.
I sent this off via a local courier who used UPS.
24 hrs later i get a call from bank to say the payment was fraudulent using a stolen card.
my though was i lost the PC, so i called the courier in the hope they could stop the delivery and return it.
i was lucky it was at sea, but not yet at destination, so it would be returned once it reached the port, but would cost me return costs.
so after a few days i got the PC back and managed to sell it again, but i still made a loss due to the delivery and return costs.
