    How to Prevent and Protect Yourself from Online Fraud


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    If you have ever been victim of fraud before, then you know all too well how ugly it can be.The key to preventing fraud is to use common sense and investigate with all the information you have.

    Preventing Fraud

    They key to preventing fraud is to collect as much information as possible. While more information is generally better, there is such thing as too much information too. You don't want to go around collecting your clients' SSNs, as that probably would scare them away. A shopping cart, or some sort of ordering system is usually a good idea in keeping your customer data secure and easily findable.

    Below we're going to break up the different techniques you can do with certain types of information.

    IP Address

    The best thing you can do with an IP address is figuring out the location of it. You can do this with http://www.domaintools.com or http://www.dnsstuff.com. Sometimes an IP can be off by a few states or a few hundred miles at the most. But if the IP location is in a different country than your customer, then you may have a problem. From my experience, the IP is usually from an odd country. Generally IP is one of the most clear indicators, but it can be wrong.
