The Czarina has an interesting account of a run-in with attempted credit card fraud from her point-of-view as a merchant. Moral – someone who insists on a partial payment via Western Union upfront to be reimbursed via credit card is NOT your friend. And if a merchant accepts a fraudulent payment via credit card, they are the ones out, not only for the denied charge, but also for whatever goods were purchased – ouch! Fortunately, she didn’t learn that lesson the hard way. The experience does make me more understanding of merchants being picky about accepting credit card payments.
Plus: the Czarina’s Baby Dipper® bowl got a nice write-up on Yanko Design!
