4CheapHosting.net - Credit Card Fraud / Dispute List

Credit Card Fraud can be divided to the following sub-categories :

1. Malicious Disputes. This is when the card owner is the real owner of the card but taking advantage of the credit card rules he disputes his order. This can happen because itís nearly impossible or just very expensive to show written proofs that he was the did the transaction. The same can happen when more than person share one card or the person who place the order use the card without the real owner to know about it. This turns to a full dispute because the real owner canít recognize the buy to his credit card report.

2. Bad use of the credit card info. This is when leaked credit card information is used to charge the card. This can happen with stolen wallet which has cards in it, from company employees that can see this kind of information using manual POS or hand powered charge devices...

We have less than zero percentage tolerance with credit card fraud attempts with no exceptions and no second chances because we believe these attempts damage everybody's business and many times we spent a lot more than the actual hosting prices to track these people. All non legitimate credit card transactions are also reported to the: Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC). We value and respect legitimate and responsible people they give us the opportunity to serve them.

These rules apply for all international fraud attempts under the VISA or Master card and most of the major credit cards jurisdiction

In the rare event that a fraudulent order passes our screening process, we will report the fraud to the appropriate legal authorities and provide those authorities with the necessary information to complete an arrest and effective prosecution. We will report the fraud to your Internet Service Provider for action under their Acceptable Use Policies. We may also initiate civil action against you. We believe that credit card fraud destroy our business and we do whatever we can to stop it.
