About Fraud Filter
What is Fraud Filter?
Fraud Filter can provide an additional layer of protection to help you fight fraud and avoid chargebacks. By using Fraud Filter's simple rule-based functionality you can easily set up warnings for suspicious orders, or block orders completely.
What does the app do?
When an order match a filter you've created Fraud Filter will flag it as suspicious to warn you or automatically cancel it for you, depending on what action you've chosen. When Fraud Filter flags an order as suspicious it will mark the order as medium risk, and you'll be able to tell which filter that was triggered from the fraud analysis section on the order page.
How does it work?
With Fraud Filter you can create filters and rules based on order details you suspect could be suspicious and want to review or block. And it's all integrated into your store admin. Each filter consist of one or more rules that needs to be met for the filter to be triggered on orders.
As an example you could configure Fraud Filter to flag orders from a specific country that have an order value greater than 200 USD so you can review them before fulfilling. When an order is placed that match your rules Fraud Filter will automatically follow the instructions you've set up and either flag it as suspicious or cancel it.
If you receive an order which has details you would like to create a filter with you can easily do this from the order page. Click the more actions menu, and chose the 'Create fraud rule' which opens Fraud Filter and allows you to edit your new filter before saving. You can at any time add new filters, edit or delete existing ones, or view which orders that have triggered a certain filter.
Installing Fraud Filter is easy, and free. The app is directly integrated with the admin of your store. Read the FAQ listed on this page for step by step intstructions with supporting screen shots.

This app only works if you create a single list for each email you are blocking. There is no way to adjust the filter to search for OR only AND. So if you put two emails into one list - it assumes you need both conditions to work (and then does not). This seems like a major development oversight by Shopify - should allow for AND and OR filtering so users can create one list and add names to it versus create a list for EACH individual email. Please fix ASAP.
Thank you for writing your review and for highlighting this issue. I can see why this would be a problem when creating lists within the app, so will be sure to pass your feedback onto our development team for them to review. -Victor, Shopify Support
I used this app and the orders are being identified as fraudulent, but I'm not getting any warnings in the Shopify admin, can you check please?
I'm sorry to hear that you've had this issue but thank you for notifying us of the issue here. The Fraud Filter app can be used to set rules on cancelling and flagging orders based on certain criteria set by the merchant, but Shopify also offers a risk analysis on orders that automatically flags orders of a certain risk based on a number of factors. If you're unsure about the risk level of your orders, I'd recommend contacting our support team so they can take a closer look at your store: https://bit.ly/2AWw5VA. -Victor
BIG BUD PRESS
This app does not work. It hasn't blocked a single order placed by email addresses we have blocked through the app.
