    Hosting company engaging in fraudulent practices - how to report to payment processor

    I was recently the victim of fraud by my hosting provider (Wholesale Internet). Should I report this to their payment processor? What's the best way to identify the processor of said merchant?

    Lets get serious about This!

    Anyway, you would have come here to better research about the host, than to run here to report when there is a problem.

    However, you can better understand the payment processor depending on the payment method you used.

    WOT has their site listed as a scam -

    What payment processing did you order this on? If paypal file a dispute if CC then file a dispute with your bank and they might check it out but it depends.

    Yes, I agree with the above post.

    If you paid by credit card, then contact your card provider and request a chargeback. If you paid by bank transfer or other method, then contact the payment provider and try to request a chargeback.

    There is no way to contact their merchant account provider directly since they will surely have very strict privacy policy.

    It is best to "vote" with a chargeback if you feel you have been defrauded. If the company gets enough chargebacks, then the merchant provider will simply drop them as a client...

    If it's PayPal or something like that, you simply send in an email (try to find executive email addresses).

    But if it's a legitimate merchant account, not much to do besides file a chargeback, but unless you can get those to amount to over 2% of their overall payments, it won't do much.
