In that case, the transaction should have failed when the registrant
provides a fake address - it DID NOT. That only means one thing - both
DoAttend and ebs.in (their payment gateway provider) DONT have any
access to your bank details. At best, they are fraudulently collecting
important private details <-- For what? Remember, they already have
your name, email id, phone number, bank address and the most important
Credit card details along with the CCV number and the expiry details.
All this information with a third-party vendor should make you nervous
about online fraud.

I agree with the "malicious" bit - Not giving me what I paid for AFTER
you have been paid by my bank definitely falls under that category.
Their intent is suspect.
