Police not interested in online fraud

I run several online eCommerce sites, and regularly get obviously fraudulent orders placed with stolen credit cards. Despite have the "perps" contact details via the delivery address, the police just arent interested in me reporting these incidents having tried several times.

They should be investigating crimes BY business, e.g. data loss, phorm/BT

So, the old bill are only about 5 or 6 years behind the cybercrims in terms of sophistication and ability. Having said that, the team I worked with were more like extra strength private investigators rather than up to any mass scamming of innocent idiots.

Oh and the OBs personnel databases are running wild and free so if you're a copper and you're reading this, show a bit of respect when you're dealing with an IT person. They might not need your official complaints procedure to express their displeasure.

And this fantastically well-informed, knowledgeable butthole was Chief Information Security Officer for one of Browning Street's favourite American Outsourcers...

well tried concept of neighbourhood-focused community policing

Yes, we know how well that works....if you need a clubbing just let us know.

Meanwhile, they need someone to monitor the buses, trains, and cabs to pick up lost gubmint

secrets as they're being dropped.
