Beware of Free E-mail Address for E-store OrdersTuesday, October 25, 2005
Posted by Brawlin Melgar You should be scared of spam-bots missions that complete orders with free e-mail account addresses this Halloween.
Products in your estore are at risk and 'Free Email Accounts' are often an indicator. Free email accounts are often used in fraudulent activity such as stolen credit cards, bank accounts and company credit information.
If you own a website with an estore, beware of users with free email address accounts. Many emails with the intent to fraud use 'Free Email Accounts' such as hotmail, yahoo and gmail. 'Free Email Accounts' are easy to setup and easy to dispose of after completing a spam-bot mission.
'Free Email Accounts' have been such a problem with business to business sites that many B to B websites won't accept free email accounts to transact business.
Here's why: An unscrupulous programmer who asked not to be identified explained the logic behind the huge influx of spam: "When I create one bot, it goes on a mission 24-7. That bot will find at least one thing to exploit every hour of every day. I don't just make one bot and neither do my friends."
