    Criminal charges?

    Is it possible to pursue an individual for recovery of a false chargeback? Presuming that the credit card or payment agency decide it's not worth doing this, can you do it yourself through legal means?

    I think you could - if you have proof that they did something maliciously. But you would probably need lots of proof to show that they did it on purpose, because of course they will deny it.

    I agree with Wildfire. You would need lots of proof and a lot of cash to fund the venture. In the end it would cost you more than the amount lost I think. Maybe satisfying but costly!

    Funny you ask that. In 5 years, I tried that approach 10 times, the results were this. First the secret service won’t touch the case for under $50k so got to go local. Out of the 10, 4 of the local police told me they won’t consider the case as it's not their issue, got to go to the FBI which just sends you to the secret service which will not touch it. Three other ones said they would take the complaint however I would have to go there and there is almost no chance it will get picked up. The other three, this is my favorite, threatened harassment charges against the company I work for and me. In one particular case, the detective told me if I called the lady again or him, he would personally see that I be brought up on harassment charges.

    In answer to your question, not much help here.

    You can bring a civil case on anyone. As far as criminal, would be much for difficult and doubt you'll ever get much backing there unless you're talking about a huge amount of money.

    Why won't the credit card or payment agency touch it? This would make me think that it's likely to be unenforceable, presumably because there is insufficient evidence?

    I agree with Jean. Your evidence could be insufficient that they won't make a chargeback. If only credit card companies will be like Paypal where they always side with the customers then you won't have any problems.

    So what are the evidences that we need to show in order for the credit card company to issue a charge back? If you want to pursue legal actions then you should weigh your legal expenses with the money that you will get if ever you win the case.

    If you have proof that you actually sold a person an item, and they request a chargeback for some crazy reason, you can still have them re-charged. The chargeback is really like a temporary hold while the merchant proves that the transaction is legit.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I was thinking hypothetically so there's no real case to examine, but it does seem overall that a) it would be hard to have any law enforcement support, and b) it would be expensive.
