Protection for unauthorised fund transfers and Errors
In any such event, there is an unauthorised fund transfer, or an Error occurs in your UChatPay Account (except for any unauthorised fund transfer or error initiated in an environment not hosted by UChatPay), UChatPay will reimburse you for the full amount of every eligible unauthorised fund transfer or Error as long as you follow the procedures below. An unauthorised fund transfer occurs when an e-money fund transfer is made using your UChatPay Account that you did not authorise and that did not benefit you. For example, if someone misuses your password to access your UChatPay Account, and makes an e-money fund transfer of your UChatPay Account, an unauthorised fund transfer has occurred. If you authorised someone to access your UChatPay Account (by giving them your login information) and they make e-money fund transfers without your knowledge or consent, you are responsible for any resulting use.
You should immediately notify UChatPay if you believe:
To be eligible for protection for unauthorised fund transfer, you must notify us within Sixty (60) Days after any unauthorised fund transfer first appears in your UChatPay Account history statement;
You should constantly log into your UChatPay Account and review your UChatPay Transaction history statement to ensure that there has not been an unauthorised fund transfer or Error. UChatPay will also send an email to the primary email address you have provided to us in order to notify you of each e-money fund transfer or payment made from your Account. You should also review these e-money fund transfers or payment confirmations to ensure that each e-money fund transfer or payment was authorised by you and is accurate;

If you notify us verbally, we may require you to send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days. During the course of our investigation, we may request additional information from you.
UChatPay actions after receipt of your notification

We will conduct an investigation to determine whether there has been an unauthorised fund transfer or Error that is eligible for protection;
We will conclude our investigation within ten (10) business days of the date we received or acknowledged your notification of the suspected unauthorised fund transfers or Error. If your UChatPay Account is new (the first e-Money fund transfer from your UChatPay Account was less than thirty (30) business days from the date you notify us), we may take up to twenty (20) business days to complete this investigation. In any such event, we may require more time, we may take up to thirty (30) days to complete our investigation (or up to sixty (60) days if the investigation is related to a cross-border e-money fund transfer);

If we decide that there was no unauthorised fund transfer or Error, we will include an explanation of our decision in our email to you. You may request copies of the documents that were used in our investigation.
We will rectify any Error that we have discovered.

If the Error results in your receipt of more than the correct amount to which you are entitled, UChatPay will debit the extra amount from your UChatPay Account.
If you erroneously make an e-money fund transfer to the wrong party, or enter the wrong amount in the e-money fund transfer (based on a typographical error, for example), your only solution will be to contact the party which received the e-money fund transfer and request them to refund the e-money fund transfer.
