    These people were using a Lost Card to try Defraud myself and the Cats Digital website. Just a heads up.

    I was thinking along the lines of identifying signs that you might be getting scammed based on the registrant information. Could be useful as a general tip for the future.

    Maybe this is the best clue.
    Registrar of Record: CADiware AG
    Record last updated on 2009-05-17 09:06:02.0
    Record expires on 2010-05-17 09:06:02.0
    Record Created on 2009-05-17 09:06:02.0
    A really new domain!

    WRT the berea address, then yes, agreed ... but WRT the Randburg address ... that doesn't seem anywhere near as suspicious.

    Also, to check up on a domain every time might become a little time consuming ... imagine a store doing 50 orders a day, could be a nightmare.

    But there are usually tell tale signs.
