A: InternetSecure, the credit card processing company that manages the online credit card transactions, declined your transactions.

Your credit card will show the transactions, however the additional ones will be refunded and shown on your statement within 72 hours.
Please Note: FrontRunner Professional DOES NOT process any credit card transactions. NO funds are deposited to our accounts unless approved by both the credit card company and InternetSecure.
