Update: July 20, 2017

Payments and Fraud Transactions

Submitting to Model Citizen is free. Model Citizen does not and will not own your images.

If you have chosen any add-ons from the form, it will take you to the add-on page to complete your submission. If you decide to not take any services, please leave the page as your entry has already been submitted once you click “complete now” button.

As mentioned on this page you own the copyright, you have the right distribute, publish and authorise Model  Citizen Magazine for your publication to our platforms (App, Magazine, Apple News Channel, Blog and Social Media). We will use the photo credits you provided us.  Model Citizen would never own it.

Payments are not refundable once we have published you to our blog. Recently, we have received a few "fraud" cases with payments that some clients make. Their banks have successfully credited their money bank, businesses like ours suffer from the chargebacks. Not only clients who reported their transaction fraud even they knowingly made the purchase hurt our record (through Stripe and Paypal), the business will also have to pay the chargeback fee of $15.00.

Having said that, when the dispute is being made, and the bank decided in "your" (the client) favour, we will then go to the extra investigation through our third party partners and check the following information:

Geolocation checks
IP address, device, and email risk analysis
Credit card information
Transaction data
Network reputational analysis

When our records show that you are the owner of the credit card information yet you reported the transaction as Fraud; you, therefore, give Model Citizen the ownership of the materials you submitted. We will take necessary actions against "you" (the consumer, the person who proceeded with the transaction, the person who reported the transaction as fraud) to avoid such deals to happen again to other businesses.

It is important to make sure that you check your credit card information and contact us at mag@modelcitizenmag.com if you have questions about a transaction, before reporting it as Fraud.
