MasterCard and South Australian Police: Caring Less About Fraud!

Posted 16-09-20 by David

We love selling our items to real customers who, well, pay, but we are now in the midst of a flood of scam orders that in virtually case are (a) emanating from South Australia, particularly Adelaide, and (b) use MasterCards for payment, often with (c) several MasterCards being first tried before one works!

You'd think that the South Australian Police would care about this.  They don't.  We've filed official reports and responded with additional information.  It seems to be a permanent Rostered Day Off amongst the Adelaide constabulary.  Perhaps they have ducked down to Glenelg for a dip?  No response, despite official CyberCrime submissions and "promises" that the matter had been referred.  Sadly, this is clearly tosh.

And MasterCard and Westpac?  No response despite the obvious patterns of repeated cybercrime playing out in front of their eyes.  Hopeless.

So, to begin with, here is the "Honour Roll" of Adelaide addresses to which the criminals have asked for their orders to be shipped:

30 Columbia Crescent, Hallett Cove, SA  5158

40 Hamilton Crescent, Aberfoyle Park, SA 5159

49 Spinnaker Circuit, Sheidow Park, SA  5158 (greetings to "Joshua Robinson" at that address)

10a Wheaton Road, Plympton, SA  5038 (hi to "Jess Witt" there)

11 Riddoch Crescent, Woodcroft, SA 5162

Based on the similar spelling errors and lack of capitalisation in these orders and the use of Gmail addresses for all orders, our educated guess is that the same person is behind all of them.

...but nobody seems to care.
