    UK fraud

    Hello,

    We've received a number of fraudulent orders, under a variety of names, from an address in the UK:

    691 Great West Road
    Isleworth, Middlesex, TW7 4PS

    Each order is the same, it's a high-dollar item, and the person wants expedited shipping. But they all go to this address. Within a few days, we always get a report that the transaction was made using a stolen credit card. Fortunately we've never sent anything to this person(s.)

    Can anyone in the UK point me to where I can report this online? Should this go to the Metropolitan Police? I know it's probably worthless to report this person, but it's the right thing to do.

    To any other vendor, be on the lookout for this address and don't ship to them.

    There's a special police unit that deals with this:

    Yes, same here.
    they have wanted me to ship bunch of items to the same address as well.
    Mainly dive lights and computers.
    One was even communicating with me at length via email trying to convince me that the billing/shipping address is good.
