Deadbeats - Be Forewarned

If you pay for membership here, whether it's for one month or a year, you use Paypal and you have the charges reversed after your membership expires, you will be outed as a deadbeat. This is the first time that any member has paid for access to our paid forum sections and then had their charges reversed but it only takes one time to really tick me off.

Notice from Paypal sent to us and her -
"We have been notified by your buyer's credit card company that a chargeback has been filed against this transaction. The claim indicates that the buyer did not authorize the payment associated with this transaction."

This member logged in to the forum and paid for membership by clicking thru the paid subscription link that took them directly to Paypal. The reason I know this is that Paypal returns the member's ID to us after payment and our forum script automatically sets the member up as a paid member. It's all done electronicly.

This person either used someone else's Paypal account or credit card fraudulantly to pay or they are trying to defraud us.

Either way, shame, shame on you! Joi Hicks - member name "ladygirl99" - your days at RHSS are over forever.

It never ceases to amaze me how low some people are. You have a right to be ticked off.

Linda,
As a business owner, and someone who has had to deal with such things -- I am glad to see you take a strong stand on this issue. Yes, and it only takes one to tick me off too!!!

You know tho.... thinking about it --- I just cannot even imagine what her motive could have been. Even the cost of a full year is a small investment to make in a great site....

Most of my "potential" chargebacks are never actually charged back to me because I have been successful in fighting them..... but they cost me $20.00/each when a customer contests their billing..... and sometimes that is more than they purchased! And darn it, the credit card company let's them have 2 complaints, i.e. up to $40.00 out of my pocket because they can't remember they charged the items, or don't recognize the company name, etc. etc. etc. The customer never knows about this part of it..... but it really is the part that makes me the maddest. I lose no matter what in those situations as there is no way most of the time the profit on any sale they contest is more that the 20.00 fee!!!

Shame on you JOI!

Good for you Linda! I'm sorry that it had to happen to you though, but at least you can do your part to show them people are wise to their actions. I had someone do that at the school supply store I manage. She bought several items, used part of them and then tried to return them. I politely explained to her that we cant sell used merchandise, so I couldnt do the return. (she paid by visa) About 2 months later we got a chargeback letter from Visa stating that this card was used without permission. Well...I alwasy double check ID and signature....so I know she was just mad I wouldnt return the items. (It was a sale of about $70.) The store owners tried to fight the chargeback...I still dont know if they won. What gets me is she came in the store the other day..and bought some more stuff, but this time paid cash. I wonder if she will try to return again...hmmm...
