On the other hand you learned an important lesson - don't use credit cards in questionable places.

I've done a couple of disputes in my life and I have won them both. One was an online merchant in China and the bank involved was Chase. They do not always side with the merchant.

If you want to complain, tell your story to the press, CFPB, FTC, etc. Ranting here isn't going to help you in anyway.

Even filing a civil lawsuit against Chase will get you somewhere.

Without knowing the exact details of the situation, this is scary.

I think his point is you are told how "protected" you are from fraud. But when it gets into gray areas like this, he's right, they may well simply look at protecting themselves from the cost involved here.

Granted it's difficult for Chase to establish the facts of the case. But haven't they ever heard the term "Shanghai'd" before?

Seems like another case where your only out - hiring a lawyer of your own to argue the jurisdiction and grey law areas and fighting it up the chain on principle - costs more than you were scammed, so then its just can you afford to/are you willing to fight in on principle.
