Cancelling credit card contract

My nephew and some friends - for a laugh -visited some adult porn sites on the internet (OK - bad thing to do but it happens. ) Like a fool, he gave his credit card details to access a site. They had had a few drinks and he forgot about it. When he realised his account was being debited, he instructed his credit card company to cancel the payments. They tell him that they can't legally do this: that he must do it himself. He can't even remember where the site was - has certainly not accessed it since (it's honestly not something he would normally do.) Whoever is debiting his account is hidden behind the term "IAA*72 Internet Access". He told his credit card company that if they wouldn't cancel the payments, he would cancel his credit card, but they say they will still be obliged to pay, and that he will be obliged to pay them. Is this true? Also, how can he sort this out?



I am a law school graduate. What I offer is mere information, not to be construed as forming an attorney client relationship.

Your credit card company must do what he says. He is to tell them not to authorize these payments, make a formal written complaint. He needs to get an address from them (the address that credit card company has on file for this company and any all phone numbers.)

Does the charge on the statement have a phone number? Check that.

Also, your computer believe or not keeps a history of all websites visited. Contact your computer dealer to find it or go through your c:drive to find it....it is there usually under history or something.

Hope this helps.
