    How does one find out complete details about a Visa merchant? A family member was scammed, and I take a dim view of that.

    I have just the complete merchant name, provided by the bank, and their category according to Visa.

    Link?

    I did a fair amount of searching before I made the post... and I'd be displeased with myself if there was in fact a directory on the Visa site and I missed it!

    I come from a land downunder
    chargeback - I have a cc merchant account and the bank always sides with the purchaser as no matter how much proof you have.

    Indeed, the charge back has already been processed successfully :)

    However, the question remains as to who the merchant is, and where they're located...
