Unhappy credit card fraud ?

Hello ,

I'm looking in to openning a shopping site , where I will accept credit cards , but as I heard there a lot of CC fraud going on , so , my question , if somebody will buy something not on his CC and then , the owner of cc will require his money back ... what should I do then ?

Thank you,
bye.

I think the problem is not as wide spread as everyone thinks. I have made many purchases over the internet and never had any problems. A friend of mine had their CC information stolen (not through the internet) without her even knowing. Mastercard found out about this fraud some how, and a couple days after some fraudgelent purchases were made the credit card was cancelled. Mastercard covered all $3000 + that was spent, and immediately issued her a new card. She was charged not a penny.
I believe most major credit cards have a policy of holding the client responsible for no more than $200 on any fraudelent purchases. Not 100% sure of this but you can double check.
IMHO I really doubt you will have a problem though.

2DJ_B :

yes, MasterCard returned her those $3,000 , but MasterCard itself won't be able to refund all of fraudent money ... so the MasterCard will go to a merchant and will require a chargeback ;( ... and now what will merchant do ? ... well , little shop will be out of business very soon ;( ...
