How to stop fake donations (activate Recaptcha)

If you notice suspicious activity in your account such as many $1 or $5 donations coming from unknown donors with unusual/suspect email addresses, you should enable the ReCaptcha security widget on your pages.

In this situation, someone may be testing numerous stolen credit/debit card numbers by making hundreds of fake donations on those cards, in an attempt to identify which cards as still valid/active.

To prevent the fake donations from being made, go to Main menu > Organization; Scroll to the bottom of page and “Enable the Recaptcha” feature, then click update to save your changes.
