    Due to security concerns I will no longer
    ship to any address other than the purchasers
    billing address. In short, I'm fed up losing
    money and products on stolen credit card info
    that my security cant or doesnt detect. LDS

    Makes perfect sense to me. If they want it sent to someone else let them arrange to send it.

    There's always the few who FK it up for everyone else. Sorry to hear about what's been going on Larry. It's tough enough running your own business without the crap that is happening to you.

    Smart and logical move. Fedex or UPS would be glad to ship it wherever they want it to go on their own separate transaction.

    I have had 2 attempted purchases since last Nov.
    and one actual purchase.The first for a $1K worth of triggers.
    The buyer made several failed attempts to land an order, he
    finally made it. I had a bad feeling about this one.
    The stars never lined up on submitted info, even though
    the card passed all tests. I just declined the sale.
    The second was made on a STOLEN BILLFOLD card
    in GA.
    He had all the right info, gave me a drop ship address,
    and away went $420.00 in triggers, to never be seen again
    plus the 390.00 those triggers cost me.
    This past WE. this same scum bag gives me card info from
    a stolen card from TN. He would have been successful had
    he not given me the same drop ship address as the previous theft.
    This one was for $570.00
    Her's the problem from a vendors standpoint. All concerned in the Credit card community that make money off of me; when a loss occurs., all I get
    is,we are so sorry, we apologize. They take no risk, no one has my back,
    and they lose nothing. Its my loss all the way. Life in the not so fast lane. LDS

    What is a crying shame is that the government will not stop this. Look at the FBI and
    the tremendous waste of time they spent trying to frame Trump. If they wanted to
    they could catch these bastards and send a message and it would stop. But the
    government just doesn't care.

    The last time I was involved in a theft, someone/or ones got me for over 3K.
    My local FBI agent said they didnt open cases unless the loss was over 5K.
    Thats when I switched to the processor that I have now. Had i stopped drop shipping at that point, I guess I would have been safe now. Being convenient
    for customers has cost me way to much, and has come to an end. LDS
