Consumers no longer have to pay $99 to get their names off a notorious blacklist of customers who dispute credit card charges, but watchdog groups still worry that the list itself jeopardizes their rights.

As we told you back in March, the site BadCustomer.com keeps a running tally of customers who request a credit card reversal, called a chargeback, after paying a merchant. Even a single chargeback can land you on the list, which can lead to merchants rejecting your card in the future.
