  2. What happens if I see fraudulent charge on my credit card or someone used my credit card online even though I have the physical card with me? Does CPP cover these kind of fraudulent charges and reimburse the card holder for same? Thanks.

  3. Dear sir,
    I am an ICICI card holder when I checked my account summary it is found that Rs. 1499/- (13/08/15)is deducted from my account in favour of CPP Assistance service provider .I haven’t been given any prior information about that,(neither I got a phone call nor an email) how requested my money to refund
    I want to cancel every service of CPP.

    How can they deduct such amounts without prior notice?

    I also request you to send a message to my cell regarding cancellation of CPP.
