The World of Drop Addresses + The Fall of the WannaCry "Hero"

The Online Fraudcast with Brett Johnson & Karisse Hendrick show

Summary: One of the most asked about topics by online retailers (with physical goods) are around drop addresses. Residential addresses that are used unknowingly by the owner to receive packages, re-shippers, mules, "legitimate" freight forwarders....and now virtual addresses. What are all of these and how do they work? Why do fraudsters choose one over the other and what are they looking for in a place to ship items to? And, with so many different locations for fraudsters to select to receive your company's products, how do you identify when a shipping address looks legitimate but isn't?  But first, Brett talks about the "twitter war" he got in to with the infamous hero of the "WannaCry" ransomware attack and his thoughts on if Marcus Hutchins has truly turned over a "new leaf". -Who better to critique him than a former fraudster, that knows all his tricks?  Online FraudCast will be recording a live episode May 22 in San Francisco at CNP Expo!
