This is fine for orders taken and checked off-line and goods sent by
non-electronic means. But what about orders taken and fulfilled online? For
those orders fulfilled off-line there is always an address provided and so it is
easier to tract down the fraudster especially if you ask for the cards billing
address as well as the delivery address.

But when fulfilling orders on-line such as provision of software or access to
on-line services then the transaction tends to be real-time with no address
provided and so harder to spot and/or deal with. Other than the likes of SET
(when/if it eventually is adopted and released) what means are there to check
for fraud in these circumstances?
