How to Beat Online Fraud?
« on: June 08, 2011, 12:28:03 AM »
Hi all,

Do you have any good suggestion to beat the online fraud?

We are a software company. Once the buyer purchase the license key online, our system will send the key to the buyer's email account automatically. It worked well before. However, we see the fraud rate go higher recently.

It is not a good feeling to handle the chargeback cases. Do you have any good suggestions?

About the only thing you could probably do is have the software "call home" to check if its key is valid or not, and if the system detects a single key being used by multiple people you could have it send a remote kill command for the software.

This is how adobe does their CS5 software.

This also allows you to deactivate any keys if someone does a chargeback.

There are ways around this, but your average user doesn't know how.

Is there any encryption available that we can use to filter the unrequired user's or any other strategies ?

The speed of money transfer is very fast now days but there are many risks of online fraud. So to protect yourself over internet you have to protect your computer with anti virus software. Also avoid the use of Wi-Fi for internet and protect your LAN with strong password. Also be safe when you shopped online. Use familiar sites for online shopping. Use credit card in place of debit card. Also be careful when you want to use online social networking sites. Always secret your personal information and do not shop online in front of people.

To beat the online fraud, you should include the strong security for it. You should check all the details of the website and the product. You should check the ID of the product which you have purchase in the bill. Ignore the spam mails.

They come with some good advice about how to makes sure it doesnít happen to you. Here is their advice:-

1.     Question why a website is asking for your information. Consider whether it is someone that you would like to give that information to. Never give online info unless it is absolutely necessary

2.     Be cautious if you share your accommodation with others. Passwording your computer may be a good option here

3.     Change your password regularly

4.     Donít use standard passwords like your own name or family membersí names

5.     Use a combination of letters, number and other characters for your passwords

6.     Donít use the same password for more than one site

7.     Donít click on links on emails. Type in the site address at the browser line instead

8.     Keep your anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-spyware and firewall software up to date as often as you can

9.     Keep your operating systems and applications such as Microsoft up to date as often as you can

10.     Check all your files once a week with anti-spyware and adware applications

11.     Make sure that all users of the computer (especially your children if you are working from home) understand the precautions they must take when online

12.     Do not leave your Broadband on unnecessarily

13.     If you use a wireless modem make sure that you have at least 128-bit encryption if you are registered for online banking

14.     Do not open emails that claim you have won a prize or go to the site Ė unless if you have entered a competition

15.     If you have an unsolicited email from someone you donít know it is best not to open it. Delete it immediately.

16.     Know where to go if you are a victim of online theft, e.g. the police, credit card companies and the suppliers of online services
