Complaint Category: Unauthorized credit card charges

Complaint: charged a pair of soccer shoes to my credit card without my authorizing the payment.

I checked my checking account today and I saw a withdraw from my account and it went to First of all I know that it was not made by me because my children do not play soccer. So I called the number on the statement and they were not helpful at all. They told me the item was already shipped. He would give me no information. The bank or police could call for information. So the bank and I did a conference call and now all he will give me is the last name ***** and the state that they were shipped to. Now I have to call the police for further information. Asked to speak to manager and of course he is in a meeting. I do intend on call the police and disputing this with my bank.

Initial Business Response
We take online fraud very seriously, however; sometimes a fraudulent transaction gets through our screening system. In this situation, if the credit card holder hasn't contacted their bank and reported the fraud for a chargeback we can still provide the refund directly from SoccerPro. However, if the customer has reported the issue to the bank we are unable to directly refund the account. The bank will submit a formal Chargeback request to us for evaluation and then with our response they will refund the card holder on our behalf. We CAN NOT refund the customer directly in this situation because she has filed with her bank. We will not attempt to delay any refunds with our response.

Additionally, it is irresponsible for any retailer to provide the Shipping address on a fraudulent transaction. That address is not generally associated to the thief and may be another innocent victim in this crime. We would NEVER provide this information direct to any card holder to let them "follow up". We will provide this information to law enforcement and we have done so on previous occasions. I understand the card holder's emotion in this situation but it is not acceptable to ask for the shipping address information.

We recommend she continue down the course of action she is on with the bank to get her refund. We will cooperate fully with the bank. There is nothing else we can do at this time.

Lastly, please understand that when all of the transactions are complete the only party involved that will have lost anything is The card holders have no risk. The banks take on no risk. We were taken advantage of just as the card holder has been and we have no protection and there is no insurance in these matters. The cost of inventory and the shipping fees incurred are ours and we are responsible for that payment regardless of whether there is fraud. With that in mind, we work constantly in improving our fraud screening and hope that this type of transaction does not see completion in our shopping cart in the future.

Additional Notes

Complaint Category: Defective, damaged, or incorrect product received

Complaint: I ordered a 2013/2014 ** ********* ********* Licensed Dani ***** jersey from for $95.39. Unfortunately, that is not what I received. I was very excited to get the jersey when the package arrived. However, I was greatly disappointed. For the 2013/2014 season, **** ***** plays under #22; I received **** ***** with the #2. I quickly emailed to tell them about their mistake. They responded that **** ***** number was #2 on the website and therefore there was nothing they would to. I was completely shocked. All I wanted was a replacement with the correct number. I emailed them back that I was dissatisfied. They stated they were not responsible and blamed their name-set manufacturer, though the wrong number is on's website.. They also stated they had spoken to management and all they could offer me was $25 credit for their website. I was further insulted when they suggested I could use the credit to buy another jersey but with the corrected once it became available. $25 will not come close to covering the cost for the correct **** ***** jersey. Even as I write this complaint, there are still numerous wrong options available to trusting customers to buy.
Product_Or_Service: **** ***** Nike Barcelona Away Jersey XXXX-XXXX
Order_Number: XXXXXX

Business' Initial Response
Mr. ordered a Barcelona jersey with a customization of **** ***** #2 on our site. We did not misrepresent this in any way. **** ***** had been wearing #2 and we had not had any confirmation from the official provider of the namesets that his number had changed. In fact, the official provider of the namesets also sent us #2. At the time of year that Mr. ordered there are generally lots of rumors of player transfers and number changes and we can only sell what we can confirm. The offer to refund the cost of the customization is very fair. The jersey he received is official and authentic. SoccerPro has no liability to this issue. Again, he ordered a #2 **** ***** jersey and received a #2 **** ***** jersey. The customer has acknowledged that fact. **** ***** was commonly known for wearing #2. Although we are sympathetic to his frustration we can not be held liable for the changes of numbers worn by professional athletes. Especially during the earliest part of the season.If he would like a refund of $25 for the nameset we can do this as a one time courtesy. Otherwise, we believe this issue is closed.
