How do you dispute a credit card charge?
Disputing a Credit Card Charge Issuers must follow rules for promptly addressing a credit card dispute. You'll get a statement outlining their rules for correcting billing errors when you open an account and at least once a year. In fact, many issuers include a summary of these rights on your bills. If you find a mistake on your bill, you can dispute the charge and withhold payment on that amount while the charge is being investigated. The error might be a charge for the wrong amount, for something you didn't accept, or for an item that wasn't delivered as agreed. Of course, you still have to pay any part of the bill that's not in dispute, including finance and other charges. Write to the creditor at the address indicated on your statement for "billing inquiries." Include your name, address, account number, and a description of the error. Send your letter soon. It must reach the creditor within 60 days after the first bill containing the error was mailed to you. The creditor must acknowledge your complaint in writing within 30 days of receipt, unless the problem has been resolved. At the latest, the dispute must be resolved within two billing cycles, but not more than 90 days. In order to dispute a charge for unsatisfactory goods or services, you must: have made the purchase in your home state or within 100 miles of your current billing address. The charge must be for more than $50. (These limitations don't apply if the seller also is the card issuer or if a special business relationship exists between the seller and the card issuer.) and, first make a good faith effort to resolve the dispute with the seller. No special procedures are required to do so. If these conditions don't apply, you may want to consider filing an action in small claims court. Here are answers and opinions from FAQ Farmers:
- Be very, very careful when disputing a payment. Regardless of the amount, pay your credit card bill on time. Whatever you do, make sure your bank or credit card company do not list the balance on your credit card as a "bad debt", other you will not be able to get a mortgage for your house, or a loan for a car because your credit rating will have been affected.

If you have perfect credit what will happen if you dispute charges on a credit card and the company wants you to pay them and sends it to collections?
A collection account is a significant derogatory item on your credit report. Any late payments, collection accounts, or legal items on a consumer's credit report cause deductions in their credit score. It would be in your best interests to read your card holder agreement, specifically sections perta…ining to disputes. Many companies allow a dispute process, but if such a dispute is not resolved, you may have liability on the debt. The exact terms would be laid in that agreement. The agreement/contract is what you will be held to. ( Full Answer )

%DETAILS% No. The person who signed the card agreement (card holder) is completely responsible for any charges made on the card. The only exception is, obviously, if the card is stolen. Your only option is to get your friend to pay the amount and interest charges. I forgot to finish my question. Ho…w could the card be used if you did not have it validated? If the card was sent through the mail without you returning any paperwork, someone would have had to activate the card. If your card was used by your friend with your knowledge, the debt is yours...period. The CCC might interpret your denial as fraudulent. I would be very careful in any future correspondence/discussion in the matter. ( Full Answer )

\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThe purchaser's bank (that issued the credit card) and the vendor's bank (with whom the charge slip is lodged by the vendor) charge a percentage of the purchase amount. This amount essentially comes from the amount that is payable to the vendor. As a result, the vendor… gets about 1 to 3% less than what he would have received had the transaction been paid for by cash.\n. \nSome vendors hence tend to charge higher if you use your credit card\n. \n However \n. \nA merchant has no right to charge more if you use a credit card, although they might offer a discount for cash.\n. \nAdding a surcharge to a credit card transaction would most likely violate the merchant agreement with the credit card company. For example, VisaUSA Rules: "Always treat Visa transactions like any other transaction; that is, you may not impose any surcharge on a Visa transaction." Violation may result in penalties, suspension or termination. ( Full Answer )

Answer . \nI am a professional debt collector and would say the best answer would be to either contact your credit card company and see to whom they sold the debt, as they no longer own the debt and therefore can not help you rectify the situation. The other option would be to pull a credit rep…ort on yourself and check to see if the collection agency is on your report, or if there was an inquiry on your report from a collection agency.

Can credit card debts be disputed if the person obtained the cards when they were under the age of 18?
Answer . \nNo. The laws pertaining to minors not being held accountable for financial transactions is somewhat misunderstood. \n. \nIf a creditor/lender enters into a contract with the knowledge that the person is a minor, then the contract is null and void and the minor cannot be forced to rep…ay any monies nor be sued.\n. \nIf a minor accepts a credit card and uses it, either by committing fraud by claiming they are of legal age or by the act of ommission (not notifying the issuer of the mistake) they are responsible for debt incurred. Any negative entry on the person's credit report is also valid under the cited circumstances. ( Full Answer )

Most people think credit card and charge card are the same thing. This is not entirely correct. The difference is that the charge card is a special kind of credit card that you have to pay the entire balance off each time you receive a bill. You cannot make a partial payment, and there is no interes…t involved. With a credit card, you can treat it like a loan to yourself. You can make a partial payment when the statement comes in, and then pay interest on the balance each month until it is paid in full. Some people just keep making partial payments and pay interest on credit cards for years and years. ( Full Answer )

Credit Cards vs. Charge Cards . Many people use the terms credit card and charge card interchangeably, but there are important differences. In general, a credit card lets you make purchases for which you are billed later. Most credit card accounts allow you to carry a balance from one billing cycl…e to the next; however, you have to pay interest on that balance. Usually, you have to pay at least a certain amount of your balance each time you receive a bill.. A charge card is a specific kind of credit card. The balance on a charge card account is payable in full when the statement is received and cannot be rolled over from one billing to the next. Because you cannot carry a balance, a charge card doesn't have a periodic or annual percentage rate, so there is no rate for a charge card issuer to disclose..

This probably refers to the "card limit" on a given card. It's the maximum dollar amount that can be charged on a card. It could be the maximum limit on a brand new card, or some other limit based on an unpaid balance or new restriction that "lowers the limit" on the card at a given time.. If you h…ave a card with, say, a $10,000 limit, you can buy up to $10,000 at one time (with no balance) on that card. If you have that card and have charged, say, $5,000 on it in the last couple of days, you have a "new" or "effective" limit of $5,000 on it. ( Full Answer )

A charge card you have to pay the full balance at the end of the month. You can buy as much as you want, but you must pay at the end of the month. A credit card will give you a limit of $xxxx and you can pay that off over years and build the interest until you can never pay it off. So essentially yo…u can buy a yaht with a charge card but not a credit card.
