    Internet Fraud Complaint Center
    Hi all,

    Found this while researching some resources and I thought it would be beneficial for all to check out and bookmark if needed.

    The Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C).

    IFCC's mission is to address fraud committed over the Internet. For victims of Internet fraud, IFCC provides a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of a suspected criminal or civil violation. For law enforcement and regulatory agencies at all levels, IFCC offers a central repository for complaints related to Internet fraud, works to quantify fraud patterns, and provides timely statistical data of current fraud trends.
    Together, we can affect the industry and make change. Shine the light on all the BS going on and make the web a better place....

    Thank you Andy .......I think they may be getting a good few emails very soon eh? LOL

    It is nearly time for the parasites to put their programs out to pasture and our comission hopefully will soon be coming back to the person who earned it.
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.
    Mr. Spitzer is fetching it nearer

    A lot of fraud can be averted by properly setting up your merchant account and how you accept payments. If you make your decisions based purely on price you open yourself to a wide variety of opportunities to be taken. Check your fraud controls offered by your payment gateway and set them accordingly. There are a lot of different ways to aviod fraud and a lot of different types of fraud out there. Affiliate managers are set up in a lose lose situation. If someone buys something from your site and pays by CC, but some parasite software is rerouting that transaction, the product may never be delivered. If a customer then charges that transaction back because of lack of delivery, you stand to be TMFed and lose your ability to accept cards in the future.
