Is chargeback same as a dispute?

Customer Question

Was curious if you do a "chargeback" on online gaming, is it just a dispute or do you say chargeback to the cc company?? What legal ramifications can be involved?

The chargeback is the same thing as the dispute process. When you ask for a chargeback, you're asking your credit card carrier to reverse your payment. Your request will then throw the matter into dispute and your card carrier will investigate. Depending on the results of that investigation, they will either grant the chargeback or deny it.
