Curious if the site is being hacked in someway.
A year ago a user reached out and asked me if I’m using my shop and if not, they’d like to buy it from me. I ignored this message, but found it suspicious.
Now, in the last two days I’ve noticed my sales are skyrocketing after being relatively slow for sometime. Yet, the purchases are always by accounts with random characters as usernames.
A couple of the sales were cancelled due to bad credit card information, which I’ve not encountered before.
I’ve also noticed the activity is always at night, which makes me think it is happening in another country…where many hacks originate from.
The question is, why would someone want to do this with potentially stolen credit card numbers or whatever it is they’re up to? Anyone else seeing these sales trends?
I’d love to just think a promotion has created a favorable circumstance, but this looks too fishy.
