I just received and email from paypal about a new Carding prevention module (policy?) that will be starting soon.
I'm a little confused by this and it might not apply to my website. Just wanted to check to see if there is anything I need to do, or can change.
I don't receive very many declined transactions and 90% of them are actual customers that just entered information wrong.
Here is some of the email from Paypal,
"Sometime in late June; we’ll begin to monitor for a high-level of declines and invalid information such as expiration date or invalid Card Security Code (CSC) and if the number of declines exceeds the threshold set by PayPal, the carding module will be triggered.
Once the carding module is triggered, the following will occur:
1. An email will be sent to all ADMIN users on the account informing them of the attack. Please see reminder below.
2. The account will be blocked, and all transactions will be rejected.
3. A Result Code of 170, with the message of “Fraudulent activity detected: Carding”; RESULT=170, RESPMSG=Fraudulent activity detected: Carding, will be returned on ALL transactions while the account is being blocked."
