We all know how good Stripe is, don’t we? We also know how fucked up it is when it comes to protect we developers from frauds and chargebacks. Stripe totally sucks and this is how they make money. That’s nice modus operandi of their business. If you are using Stripe then it’s you who has to do all the hard work to protect your arse against frauds and chargeback which, unfortunately, you can’t do much to protect.
There is a lot to write about how fucked up Stripe is when it comes to providing protection but there is no point wasting my precious time on these suckers.
Here is one such instance where you have to make your own decision with customer.
This email address has been linked with an unusually large number of cards across the Stripe network in the preceding week
This is a typical warning Stripe will send you when their fucked up algorithm and fucking machine catches a transaction which crosses threshold. Why the fuck they don’t just tell that this customer is fraud or not a fraud? Well they wouldn’t do, remember my previous statement where I said that’s how they make money.
It’s your call to decide what to do with such customer based on this customer’s previous history and profile.
This is really funny how most of the payments from the same customer, using same card go through Stripe radar while few are caught. This is fucking beyond any logic. This further tells how fucked up Stripe fraud prevention mechanism is and that fucking Radar system is pathetic.
There is highly likely that this customer will fuck you over in long term so be prepared.
Good luck with getting fucked up by Stripe.
