    Scammed on my mastercard

    Scammed on my mastercard 15th May 18 at 4:05 PM
    I have been scammed in a big way with 17500 on my Tesco Mastercard
    Unknowing to me Mastercard changed the rules in April 17 whereby they would not honour chargeback or section 75 claims on this type of payment

    I was not aware and thought I had protection and used the card 1.9.2017
    Now Tesco refuse to recover the money quoting the ts and c changes and the Financial Ombudsman agrees.
    Anyone got any ideas - or knows of superman's whereabouts
    thanks

    More details needed.

    Scammed how? Where? Why?

    S75 is statute in law and cannot be changed without a change to the consumer credit act so Mastercard cannot possibly have changed the rules

    As the other posters have said more information is needed to provide you with the best advice

    Bitcoins or Carbon credits or Derivative trading - why is it a scam now and would it be a scam if you had made money etc?

    Binary options by any chance?


    If the FOS have sided with the card issuer you're out of options, assuming whoever you paid is based overseas and untraceable.
