Single Character First and Last Name Transaction gets approved!

Hello All,

 

I have an interesting problem on a live production site which for privacy reasons I can not name. For the past few weeks, we are seeing a user with the following credentials who is getting their transactions approved:

 

First Name: c
Last Name: c
Address: 1
City: 1
State: 1
Zip: 1
Country: China
Phone: 1

 

The credit card information works fine, and the payment is posted to the business owner's bank account fine, but obviously the fact tha the information above seems made up has the business owner concerned.

 

Could this user be using a Gift Card? Should we be concerned about this?

 

Thanks,

Pete

It looks like the person is putting in the bare minimum for the transaction to be processed with the current account settings.

 

The owner could take a look at the Fraud Detection Suite in the Merchant Interface. It has fraud filters such as the Enhanced AVS Handling Filter that are designed to help the owner filter out these types of transactions.
