Fraud prevention in Magento is a big issue, and our module uses latest technology (from only .5 cents an order!) to screen and assist in preventing fraud.
The Magento Fraud Alert Module uses MaxMind's risk scoring technology to reduce the risk of accepting online credit card payments.
The Fraud Screening/Alert extension featuring MaxMind is a "must have" extension for your Magento stores. Did you know that the cost of online fraud rose to $4 billion in 2008 (and it rises every year!)?
In particular, fraudulent international orders were expected to rise to 4% of online orders in the US last year. Our fraud screening module helps you quickly identify suspicious orders. For example, how would you tell if an order was placed from a computer in Ghana but the shipping address is in Australia? If it was then you will certainly want to know about it! This is a common ploy that is flagged automatically by our module. Incoming orders are automatically scored for fraud risk using MaxMind's MinFraud service. Each order is assigned a score out of 100 - the higher the number of fraud issues, the higher the score.Seamless Integration With Your Magento Store
Our module installs into your Magento store without having to modify any of your code. Order scores are displayed in the summary Sales Order view and detailed information about the order score (and elements that contributed to it) is visible in each order.
Economical and easy to use</b>
Creating a MaxMind account is free, and you can sign up for a free trial and get 1000 free transactions to get you going. We only use one transaction per order keeping costs way down!
