Buying thing from company A but credit card was charged to B

Postby Weihan » Fri Feb 17, 2012 11:36 am

I encountered an unique situation here.

Basically company A is a scam company which has been scamming people into buying their scam time-share package.

Both my friend and me believed in their presentation and was conned into signing a contract with them. After that, we swipe our credit card to pay for it. We didn't notice that the company heading from the credit card slips have been deliberately cut off. When the credit card bills arrived some time later, we realised that the bill was charged to company B instead of company A. We have checked that company A and B have different company registration numbers, so they are clearly different companies. However, the contract we signed and the supposed "products" that we bought is supposed to be from company A.

Since we have realised that we have been scam by this company A, do we have strong legal ground to report the above case as a fraud (we are suppose to be paying company A but it turns out we are paying company B) and reverse the charge?

Did you receive value for what you paid for? Or is this buyers remorse? If, and I do mean IF you were defrauded, then call the police and the credit card company.

The problem is that it is a scam. Of course there isn't any value in the thing we bought.

That is why we are trying to find reason to get back our money.
