Disputing a bank card transaction

Prior to dispute a credit card transaction, be advised that

If the goods or service you bought online do not correspond to your order, are of poor quality, or the ordered goods have not arrived at all -- you need to contact the seller first. Be sure to keep the history of correspondence with the seller, a copy of the order confirmation or a copy of the proof of payment

If you have registered your card data, but do not want to continue to receive the service, you should inform the service provider about your intention to terminate the contract. If you fail do do so in a timely manner, it will be impossible to dispute the transaction amounts already written off from your account

In case of the credit card charge made by a hotel, it is important to pay attention to the name of the hotel: have you ever used its services? A fee could be charged for non-arrival at the hotel (if the reservation was not cancelled in advance) or for any unpaid service, for example, the minibar bill
