Hidden card fraud taxes UK.biz

Alert

@Billy Goat Gruff

We're an online retailer of digital cameras and out of 1,000 orders a week, around 100 are fraudulent. Luckily only around 1 every 2 months slip through the net. The ones that do slip through the net, tend to be fraudsters who are able to get access to the credit card holders account and change the registered card address to their own address. This means it passed the address check but we have no way of knowing it's a fraudulent card beyond using our experience to look for certain products / delivery areas which are known to be high risk.

We also allow customer to ship to an address other than the registered card address, as otherwise we'd lose hundreds of orders a week - we perform an additional security check over the phone, which is mildly inconvenient for customers as it can delay the dispatch of the order if they haven't put a contact phone number. However, there is no way round this, give that we are 100% liable.

Influential tech pundit says iPhone 'will be 3G in 60 days'

Exchange Outlook

Does anyone know when (if) the iPhone will be able to sync with exchange outlook? I'm ready to dump my increasingly clunky Orange Tytn II as soon as this is the case. It can take me five minutes to make a call by the time I've losed all the programs, seen it crash reset it and waited for it to boot up. Very frustrating...
