Fake Purchases

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.cuinnovate.com/webinars/may-leadership

I have my site set up to allow people to purchase webinars through a series subscriptions as well as just one at a time and I have gotten legitimate ones but I get A LOT of fake ones that are filled out with credit cards and everything. They appear to be from other countries possibly. I send emails to the purchaser and they aren't legitimate emails. Why would anyone do that and should I be concerned? I am not running the credit cards but they are increasing. They include complete credit card information and I have never run it.

You should not be asking for payment card details via a Squarespace form, as you do at present.

Form Blocks do not adhere to the Payment Card Industry Data Security standard (PCI DSS) compliance regulations and are not secure. Businesses that take card payments online are required to adhere to this standard; those that don’t may be forced to stop accepting payments by card.

You can use the Squarespace checkout to accept payments. This is secure and has a number of anti-fraud features.
