It is not fraud, as you paid for the booking. Fraud, as far as banks go is when a unknown 3rd party use your details.
It was an incorrect address, so it wasn't as advertised & they were prevented from using it because they were asked to pay a security deposit that they hadn't previously agreed to.
Cancelling the credit card won't do any good though.
If booking promised to refund, then you need to keep speaking to them about that.
You could also raise a complaint with your credit card issuer and request a charge back.
However I don't think you get section 75 protection on these kind of transactions.
If you don't want it, reject it.
