Certification Authorities believe in the importance of protecting the website visitor. If a certificate were issued for a fraudulent website that established a link with a visitor on the Internet, there would be high chances of causing financial damage to the visitor, who would believe that he was participating in a trusted session with an authentic website. Certification Authorities do not issue an authentic certificate to a fraudster and allow this situation. In this way, a guarantee is offered to the visitor.
If the Certification Authority fails to properly validate the information contained in a digital certificate, and the failure causes the visitor to lose out in connection with a fraudulent credit card transaction, the visitor may claim recovery in accordance with the certificate's warranty.
