Fraud: Deliberate purchase fraud


##Deliberate purchase fraud Deliberate purchase fraud is a virtual currency problem much like it is in the real world. Most of us are well aware of the risks of having our credit card or identity stolen, and when it comes to virtual worlds the risk is no different. Stolen payment methods, fraudulent identities (IPs), and other forms of trickery often seek to extract big paydays from game economies. ##Always record user details (IP) Typically deliberate purchase fraud is meant to acquire currencies or valuable accounts and sell them back to the virtual economy for profit. For prevention’s sake, it is important that user details are recorded whenever unusually large purchases occur, or when multiple purchases sequentially increase in value. Check against IPs, user emails, addresses and other indicators when this behavior takes place because you may discover multiple accounts under an IP range using similar or identical information - a Fraud Ring - and need to shut down the exploit quickly to limit your losses.
