You'd probably want to check with a lawyer, but I remember hearing somewhere that signatures obtained under extortion are not legally valid, something if verified true you would want to pass on to the CC issuer, as they would then be liable for the fraudulent charge.

Chase now informs me that once they see a signature that "matches" the one "on file",
they consider the charge valid. I sent them a detailed letter stating everything that happened, including the fact that they were notified
within 2.5 hours after the charge was made via a phone call to their fraud dept. They didn't care.....

Chinese criminals have found something much better and safer than robbing banks, it seems


Its not just China anymore. The same thing happened to a meteorologist in Miami. See this story: WTXF Meteorologist John Bolaris Recounts Incredible Story of Being Roofied and Robbed in Miami - TVSpy
We all have to be very careful now overseas & even in the states.
