Shipping Fraud

Shipping fraud occurs when a buyer spoofs a shipping address or when a seller receives payment for goods or services, but never ships to the buyer. Shipping fraud can come in many forms including when a customer uses a stolen credit card to make an online purchase. The transaction is typically cleared because the legitimate cardholder’s address is used without being flagged. However, once the customer receives shipping confirmation and the package is en route, the original address is changed.
