How FormNut fights fraud
FormNut strongly believes we have an obligation to proactively protect and
inform our users against fraud. We have instituted an extensive array of system-wide
filtering and alert mechanisms supplemented by human detection and monitoring methods
to recognize and stop abuse of our services for fraud. For example:
FormNut logs IP addresses of all new customers and times of signup, we use an
"IP to country" database to confirm customer origin (country) and deny
all signups from anonymous proxies. Our filters recognize and flag suspicious
signups and orders, which our staff then manually reviews.
All accounts reported for abuse are automatically deactivated from
our system until we review the report and reported account. This usually takes
about 24 hours. Tolerances for new users are lower than for long-term users, to
make it difficult for fraudsters to hit and run.
When fraud emails/forms are captured by our filters or reported to us, FormNut:Conducts internal investigations into the source of fraud forms and emails.
Immediately disables perpetrators using FormNut accounts to commit their crimes.
when deemed necessary, FormNut will divulge information about the identity and
actions of suspected perpetrators of fraud to interested parties and law
