Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Chargeback for purchase of fake anti-malware software
HachfaceNot the Minister Farrakhan you're thinking ofRegistered Userregular
So my dad was fooled into purchasing a rogue anti-malware program (AV Security Suite Platinum, for the curious). He's now out $70. Obviously he should tell his bank what happened, watch out for unauthorized purchases, and get a new credit card number.
Does he have any hope of getting his $70 back? It is highly unlikely he'll be able to get in touch with anyone behind the scam, much less get them to consent to the refund. So what is the process like when you ask a bank for a chargeback? He's with Bank of America, if that helps.
