        If we assume that your Card has been compromised, the further use of the card is not secure and the card has to be blocked.
        We can refuse the customer with compensation of funds in case customer continues to use the card participated in fraud or continues to use the compromised card.
      • When you notify us of an incorrectly executed MasterCard Transaction we will investigate the circumstances. If you ask us to, we will make immediate efforts to trace the MasterCard Transaction and will notify you of the outcome. We are liable for the correct execution of the MasterCard Transactions and any charges and interest that you have to pay as a consequence of the non-execution of the transaction unless we can prove that the MasterCard Transaction was received by the intended recipient or their payment service provider. If our investigation shows that the amount of the MasterCard Transaction was not received by the intended recipient or their payment service provider we will refund the difference to you without undue delay and restore your Card to the state in which it would have been had the defective payment transaction not taken place. We are not liable to you if you incorrectly identify the intended recipient, including any Merchant, under a MasterCard Transaction, but in such a case we will make reasonable efforts to recover the funds involved.
    3. Investigations

      If our investigations show that a MasterCard Transaction or other transaction reported by you as un-Authorised or incorrectly executed was in fact Authorised by you, or you have acted fraudulently or with gross negligence (for example, by failing to keep your Card security information secure), we may reverse any refund made and you may be liable for any and all loss we suffer from your use of the Card (except where the Card has been used in connection with a Distance Contract other than an Excepted Contract where you will not be liable unless you have acted fraudulently). We may also hold you liable for losses up to £50 in respect of any un-Authorised MasterCard Transaction or other transaction that was made before you notified us of the loss or theft of your Card or where you have failed to keep your Card security information safe, from the misappropriation of your Card or its security features.

    4. Refunds for Pre-Authorised Transactions
      • You may be entitled to claim a refund in relation to MasterCard Transactions within 8 weeks of the date on which your Card was debited where a pre-Authorised MasterCard Transaction did not specify the exact amount at the time of its Authorisation and the amount charged by a Merchant is more than you could reasonably have expected taking into account normal spending patterns on the Card or the circumstances of the MasterCard Transaction and you notify us of this without delay and at the very latest within 8 weeks of the debit date. We will refund the amount within 10 Business Days of receiving your claim or inform you that we need further information from you to confirm your right to a refund.
      • A claim for a refund in the circumstances set out above will not be accepted if you gave us your consent to execute the transaction and information on the MasterCard Transaction was made available to you at least 4 weeks before the MasterCard Transaction date.
