Doesn't sound like it is working. I seem to remember having to go into the
module and set it to use "3.1" mode, and not "3.0" which it was by default last
year. 3.0 doesn't support cvv2. You also need to set it in AuthorizeNet (3.0 to
3.1). However if you set it to reject on cvv2 mismatch, it should reject, and
your saying it didn't?

Also, keep in mind, any fancy AVS/CVV2 is bound to fail with a good portion of
foreign cards, whose issuing bank doesn't support the real time check. We get
that alot.
