    Well If you go to walmart and buy a TV for your personal used and later on it showed on your transaction you bought 20 case of beer. Is it legitimate. Simple as that.
    The answer to that is yes, the charge is legitimate in that you authorized the transaction. Simply because it shows up as beer on the billing statement wouldn't get you your money back, especially not while you keep the TV that you bought.

    I bet all of you never or ever even looking at the 2006 UIGEA ( UPDATED 2009- 2011.)
    THANKS FOR THE ADVICE BUT NOTHANKS. AND RON you not represent for the whole forum so don't use the the term " us"
    Btw are you from law school or CPA institution? I wondering

    I think a more apt comparison would be you went to Walmart to buy beer. You got charged for the amount of beer you purchased. Now you want the bank to refuse the charge because you are an alcoholic.

    Default Re: How Can You Dispute Online Gambling Transactions

    Okay.... So for all of the lecturing in the thread, it sounds like the actual issue here is that this was an overseas casino, and thus that credit card companies are prohibited from processing transactions to pay for gambling with the casino. Unlawful casinos frequently charge their customers through what appear to be legitimate businesses in order to avoid having credit card companies reject their charges. That doesn't render the charge legitimate -- it's an attempt to trick the credit card company into making a payment that is prohibited by law. If you do make a timely and successful challenge to a transaction, then even though you did gamble through the illegal casino the credit card company will attempt to invalidate the transactions and recover the money.

    But... if the credit card customer is not timely with the dispute, or cannot establish that the charges made through the third party businesses were not legitimate, it is possible for the credit card company to uphold the charges as valid.

    I don't know that it will accomplish much, but it is possible to file a complaint about a credit card company with the Department of the Treasury.
