  1. SECTION 75 (Only) Protection when buying Goods using a Credit Card - Section 75 Claim By law, if you've spent between £100 and £30,000, providers should refund you if there's a problem with your purchase. But this vital consumer protection, known as "section 75" claims after the relevant clause in credit law, can be denied to customers, even after a refund has gone through. This is due to a little-known loophole that means section 75 claims can be reversed. Other borrowers complain that drawn-out compensation claims have left them without any goods or their money back under Section 75, due to the lack of a legal time limit when resolving claims. The Financial*Ombudsman*Service, which said it receives a significant amount of Section 75 complaints by consumers each year, said that even savvy consumers commonly misunderstand when they are due compensation. Common misconceptions include that you are not protected if you use your credit card abroad you are and that you must need to take the retailer to court before making a claim you don't. Your refund rights under section 75 Shoppers who use a credit card are protected by laws dating back to the Seventies, which apply to goods or services bought online, in person or over the phone. Under Section 75 of the*consumer credit*Act, the credit provider is equally liable with the provider of goods or services where there is a breach of contract or misrepresentation. When a credit card provider makes a refund, it is surprisingly common that it doesn't claw back any money from the retailer, essentially this is because the credit card company may regard it as more effort than it's worth. But what banks don't tell you is that any reversed transaction can be charged back, if a retailer raises a dispute. There is also no legal time limit for card providers to consider claims, meaning a Section 75 dispute can last several months.... or even years. However, in practice, as card providers are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, then they must respond to complaints in accordance with their policy. So if there is no response then it is best to raise the issue as a complaint to try to force a response. Many Section 75 claims turn into lengthy disputes - especially where it is difficult for consumers to prove how their purchases have failed to be supplied as promised. Section 75 Rules Under these conditions, the lender will have equal liability for misrepresentation or breach of contract by the merchant. Purchases must be between £100 and £30,000 Goods or services must be bought using a credit card - or any purchase involving pre-agreed credit, such as a point-of-sale loan or some store cards The amount of credit provided to the consumer towards the purchase must not exceed £25,000 There is no time limit to make a claim, but the statute of limitations is six years (five in Scotland) - the deadline for pursuing a claim in the courts Added rules around section 75 The retailer has 45 days to dispute a reversed transaction, and a further 60 days to gather evidence There is no time limit for card providers to consider your claim, although you can take your case to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) after 30 days Claims might be rejected if there's no direct relationship between the borrower and the shop...if you pay money into a PayPal account, then buy an item and pay for it using the payment platform.
