SEVIS I-901 Chargeback Compliance

A chargeback occurs when a credit card holder disputes a charge that appears on his or her credit card statement. After a brief investigation by the credit card company, the charge is determined to be either legitimate or not legitimate. If the charge is not legitimate, the credit card company subsequently refunds the money to the credit card holder’s account while at the same time deducting the amount from the merchant’s account. The credit card company also charges the merchant a penalty fee.
