I've come across some internet companies that stated in their terms of service that chargebacks are treated as non-payment and the transaction will be reported to collection agencies.
I have a few customers I would like to do this to. Curious as to how persuasive or actually "legal" it is.
And yes, if you use a quality collection agency they can put the bill on the persons credit report.
The most important aspect is that you let the collection agency handle everything because there are very strict laws as to what you can and can't do or say.
I would just contact a collector and pass the guys info to them.
This is a dangerous fence your getting on just be ready for the storm if your travel down this road.
I would imagine a requirement for this to work would be proof of delivery and/or signature confirmation - this would rule out the possibility of them trying to claim a hacker is at fault for the charge.
Do any of you currently utilize this method of battling fraudulent customers?
I know what your talking about customers get the order and claim it was broken or didn't get the delivery, or something and then file a charge back.
Still fell your getting into some merky water and advise you to be very careful there.
When it comes to fraudulent customers, I'd be happy to fork over 100% so as long as the fraudster doesn't get any benefit out of their illegal activities.
I am sure this varies agent to agent, but has anyone encountered a dollar amount that the agent wouldn't go after? (Is this something that's only workable for $1000+?)
