*** An Anti-Fraud Service for Fraudsters ***
---------------------------------------------
Many online businesses rely on automated fraud detection tools to weed out suspicious and unauthorized purchases. Oddly enough, the sorts of dodgy online businesses advertised by spam do the same thing, only they tend to use underground alternatives that are far cheaper and tuned to block not only fraudulent purchases, but also "test buys" from security researchers, law enforcement and other meddlers.
