You may provide proof refuting the cardholder’s claim that the written description differs from the goods/services received, or proof that the cardholder agreed to accept the goods/services as provided or "as is", or proof that goods and services matched what was described at time of purchase (e.g., photographs, emails). For goods or services that were received in a damaged or defective state, you must show that an attempt was made to repair or replace damaged or defective goods or to provide replacement services. If the goods or services were returned, state how the cardholder did not comply with your clearly documented cancellation, return policy or applicable law and regulations.
