I remember reading a long time ago that if you disputed a credit card charge with the merchant but was forced to pay, you could write in “Paid in Contest” (or something to that effect) on the signature line to let the merchant and the creditor know that you did not agree with the charge.
For example, let’s say you go to a night club, they bring you a bunch of stuff that you didnt order and dont tell you that they’re charging you for it. At the end, they surprise you with an exorbitant bill. At that point, you have no choice but to pay; less you want your legs to be broken.
Everything I’m reading online is showing information on disputing the charge after the fact. But what if you dont even agree with the charge in the first place but are forced into that position? What’s the best way to let the credit card company know that you didnt authorize or agree with the charges? What are your best options?
