CHARGEBACKS AND CREDIT CARD FRAUD CONDITIONS
Please note that a subscription to FemaleCelebrities.com is a legal and binding contract between the Subscriber and FemaleCelebrities.com , and the terms and conditions of FemaleCelebrities.com which is not revocable after the user has entered the private member's area and taken advantage of the benefits of membership. Submission of credit card information to FemaleCelebrities.com and its online transaction processor (CCbill or Epoch) is equivalent to a legal signature; and all IP addresses and user access logs to the website will be retained to verify users' identities. Fraudulent use of credit cards can and will be prosecuted to the full extent of all applicable laws. Fraudulent use includes entering false credit card information and obtaining chargebacks when the credit card has NOT been stolen and the transaction has NOT been an error. Any member obtaining a chargeback through fraudulent means will be fined the maximum penalty allowable by law.
ANY CHARGEBACKS to the credit card account WILL be turned over to our Collection Agency. Accounts that are turned over to collection will be assessed the chargeback fee and the collection fee. We do prosecute users of stolen cards and also people who CLAIM their card or card numbers were stolen or fraudulently used, when they were not. We can easily track this information from system logs.
Furthermore, all credit cards and billing addresses that chargeback will be put into The Blacklist Negative Database - and the card owner will not be able to use it on the Internet in the future. Most of the larger billing companies subscribe to the negative database of anyone who makes a chargeback, whether it was a legitimate one or not. If the card owner attempts to subscribe to services on the Internet again, he/she will more than likely have to use a different card and billing address.
Credit card users may be subject to a preauthorization. The preauthorization is not a charge to the credit card. However, the then applicable monthly subscription charge may be reserved against the Member's available credit card limit. FemaleCelebrities.com will not be held responsible for bank charges, fees or penalties due to overdrawn or delinquent Subscriber accounts. Contact your credit card issuing financial institution for details.
REFUNDS - In the event that a refund is issued, ALL refunds will be made by crediting the credit card that was used to make the original purchase. NO refunds will be made by cash, check, or money order.
