    12. Credit Card Chargebacks: At BMC Tackle we have a very liberal return policy, making the need for a credit card chargeback totally unnecessary. A credit card chargeback where the item is kept and not returned, we consider as theft. We will place all frivolous credit card chargebacks on collections. Those who engage in this type of behavior will be responsible for collection costs, attorney fees, and court costs. Frivolous credit card charge backs increase consumer and business costs making retail prices higher for everyone, at BMC Tackle we take this very seriously and we will vigorously pursue all avenues of collections in these matters.
