international money transfer that is confirmed by the cardholder and for which
a confirmation number has been issued is presumed to have been processed

cancelled or modified.
7.17. In the circumstances prescribed in sections 7.13, 7.14 and 7.16 for
returned international money transfers, for whatever reason, the cardholder
agrees to and acknowledges that the applicable exchange rate may differ from
the one initially used to make the international money transfer. The cardholder
