Adult creators on OnlyFans are feeling violated. Some customers are viewing their content then getting refunds via fraudulent chargebacks.
The creator is left to reimburse the money when a customer disputes a payment with their credit card company,
despite the scammer already having accessed their content. This is very typical of online companies where customers are considered always right in their claims against traders.
Creators have said that these chargebacks can come through up to six
months after viewing the content. Myles Jackman, a British obscenity lawyer who specializes in cases related to pornography, tells Newsweek that it is usually a case of:
It's not just about the financial loss, it is also an issue of consent. Creators did not choose to let their bodies be seen for free, and it can be upsetting to know that they have inadvertently done so.
Man purchases sexual services, has a happy time,
and then afterwards feels guilt, remorse and shame, and also the loss of money, and so tries to get the money back.
Platforms like OnlyFans really need to raise their game, in terms of representing the rights of the performers in
a much more proactive fashion
