Oops, I screwed it up a little! This post was meant as a reply to a post by a lady from Chile regarding PayPal\'s refusal to accept her France-issued credit card.


This rule serves the same purpose - to eliminate as many possibilities of fraud as possible. Yes, it is clumsy, and it steps on some customers toes, but it works.


Believe me stolen credit card numbers trade is a VERY BIG problem and a multi-billion business. And PayPal is right suspecting that someone residing in Chile may use a cc issued in France simply because he bought it on Internet from a Russian criminal network, which buys those cards in bulk from a South-East Asian manufacturer.

I was amazed by offers coming to my mail box at http://www.mail.ru - half of them illegal! (Cracked mobile phone numbers, credit card numbers, Diplomas, passports, etc.)
