Mr. Elliott also worked closely with Visa, MasterCard, Canadian banks, and international partners, and created new partnerships with the Canadian companies experiencing losses due to the underground economy of counterfeit products. Project Chargeback has registered over 10,000 confirmations of charge- backs where the victims have been reimbursed and has shut down over 5,000 merchant accounts worldwide linked to counterfeiting, fraud and intellectual property theft.
