“Chargeback” is a credit card charge that has been disputed or claimed as fraud with a
credit card company and/or the User’s bank. A credit card chargeback occurs after a
cardholder/User(s) initiates a merchant dispute with their issuing bank and the issuing
bank will then charge back the transaction being disputed from BalleBaazi and the
cardholder's account is credited.
Chargeback, as defined above, may occur for one of the following reasons:
1. Mistakenly filed by the cardholder/User as he/she did not recognize the charge;
2. Many User(s) request friends, parents or other relatives to pay for the game, and they may misunderstand the billing policy and/or do not recognize the charges. They may then file a dispute for the fees;
3. After a credit card is lost or stolen, the User or bank disputes the charges in error;
4. An account is sold, shared, transferred or traded and the previous owner disputes previous billing fees. These types of accounts can and will not be released;
5. Technical problems during the payment processes; and
6. Fraudulent use of a credit card.
Procedure for User(s) recovering his/her account following Chargeback
1. The User(s) needs to verify his/her ownership of the account in question for a
chargeback. The User may need to create a new account to do so.
2. The User then needs to provide the following details:
- Name (as on the Government issued Identity Card):
- Name on the Credit Card:
- The last 4 digits of the Credit Card used on the account:
- Full Billing Address:
- Current answer to security question:
- Email Address:
3. In order to uphold the BalleBaazi privacy and security policies, representatives will ask you to verify information on an account. Payments shall not be accepted if the contact is not able to prove his/her ownership of the account. Missing information can cause delays and halt the recovery process. If the User requires additional time to gather the requested information, he/she should contact BalleBaazi at email@example.com.
4. If the User(s) does not remember the exact credit card number, he/she should check with the bank from whom the credit card was issued to the User. When an account is terminated and/or banned, the same shall not be renewed automatically on the BalleBaazi platform. All billing related to that User account shall be stopped.
Dispute of Charge by the User(s) with his/her bank:
1. If the User has disputed a charge with his/her bank, BalleBaazi shall terminate and/or close the User’s account and place it under suspension until the payment is returned to BalleBaazi.
User’s card charged without permission
1. BalleBaazi has no way of knowing who is charging the User’s credit card at the time
of purchase. However, there are certain factors which shall establish whether or not the
charge is from a legitimate source or is fraudulent in nature. In most cases BalleBaazi
shall actively ban and refund charges to credit cards that BalleBaazi has determined to
be fraudulent in nature. However, most of the chargeback claims are not legitimate and
require remittance before the account can be used again.
Friendly Fraud: Friendly Fraud occurs when a charge is placed by a member of a household with access to a credit card (or who has memorized the security information on a card) and placed charges which may not be known to the primary card holder. The charges shall still be counted as legitimate whether or not the primary card holder was aware of the charges.
Process to be followed by BalleBaazi after verification of ownership
1. Once the User(s) has verified ownership, the BalleBaazi team in charge of the User(s)
case shall give the User(s) instructions on how to proceed.
2. The User(s) shall also remember that every case is different and that the BalleBaazi team will need to research exactly what happened to ensure that both the User(s) and BalleBaazi get the fairest result.
