100% protection for you. Visa's enhanced policy guarantees you maximum protection against fraud. You now have complete liability protection for all of your card transactions that take place on the Visa system. Should someone steal your card number while you're shopping, online or off, you're protected-you pay nothing for their fraudulent activity.
Your Zero Liability policy took effect April 4, 2000.
The former policy required that you report fraudulent activity within 2 business days of discovery. After this 2-day period, you could be held responsible for up to $50 of the unauthorized charges. The new Zero Liability policy optimizes consumer protection by removing the 2-day reporting requirement and eliminating all consumer liability for transactions made over the Visa network.
Yes. The policy covers all of your Visa transactions that are processed over the Visa network-online or off. The only transactions that are not covered under the Zero Liability policy are commercial card, ATM or non-Visa branded PIN transactions.

All Visa network transactions are covered. As for the transactions on other networks, that decision is left to the card-issuing bank. Issuing banks have the option of extending the same protections afforded by Visa's Zero Liability policy.
No. The Visa Zero Liability policy applies only to cardholders whose Visa cards are issued by a U.S. financial institution.

You are not liable. Consumer protection varies from country to country and from region to region. In card-not-present transactions (mostly mail order and Internet purchases) Merchant banks are responsible for any charge-backs. Generally, these charges are passed from the bank back to the merchant.
