    yes actually your right, as resellers can accept new payment processors. so Will dont have to worry about the stolen/illegal money, as it will be from legal resellers.

    It seems a bit crazy, but after I removed the larger coupon codes, people were still frauding the $4 coupons.

    I removed the last purchasable coupon, which makes submitting to the proxy list more annoying.

    But... it should also greatly reduce the number of submissions -- which should increase the value of a submission.

    The last four fraud transactions were from this asshat:

    gaber mlente (hawanepanas@gmail.com)
    mbuh aku kelalen neng endi alamate
    11900
    Indonesia
    Phone: 0000000000

    If I could just ban Malaysia, Indonesia, Turkey, and Pakistan, 90+% of the fraud would disappear.

    Sucks

    It might be a too little amount to report, but wouldn't it be possible to report all this fraud? Maybe those biatches will learn something out of it

    Probably just depends on how religious Will is on the topic vs what his time is worth to him...

    For what he sees from the proxy list (as stated on the forum, no secret knowledge here), I'm still surprised that he mucks with hit vs his other enterprise efforts, ROI, time valuation, etc...
    Cheers,
    James

    To be honest, a big part of the problem is that I haven't been paying attention.

    Nathan and I just did some work on the script. He did coding and I did troubleshooting and fraud analysis. It should be easier to catch the bad guys in the future thanks to some of the new code. I also added some bans which should cause difficulties for the offenders.

    Ultimately however, the planet is large and Internet is effectively anonymous.

    Now the jackasses are frauding the $1 transactions. :p
    Your buyer asked his or her bank to reverse the payment for the following transaction:

    Buyer's name: <removed>
    Buyer's email: <removed>
    Transaction ID: <removed>

    Transaction date: Jun 10, 2010
    Transaction amount: $1.00 USD
    Your transaction ID: <removed>
    Case number: <removed>
