A few weeks ago a bud with a site for their small financial services company called asking about whether such and such was a good deal, and would they be missing out on some opportunity if they didn't take it.

I'm not exactly sure what the whole deal was but I think they ended up with a .us domain, some meta tags, a little baloney for $300.00. :(

Natuarally it was suggested to them that this was a rip but they provided the credit card # before asking about it. When they requested a refund, they were told the order was already being processed, no refund.

Anyway, just a heads up, something to posibly warn any clients who tend to jump on things like this before they surrender their credit card numbers. I think it was a telephone solicitation.

If they got exactly what they paid for and willingly gave up the cc info, would a card company charge it back to the merchant?
