There are some ways to detect impending disaster, like
1. Confirm ALL orders via email, and request telephone and street address details
2. Do not accept transactions from web-based email addresses, eg. Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, etc. press your ‘customer’ for their ISP email account, eg. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc.
3. Contact your bank’s merchant support people if you have the slightest doubt about a transaction, they are there to help you and would much rather have you seek their assistance prior to your initiating a ‘mini-disaster’.
If still in doubt, follow your intuition.
