it would be possible for the funds to stay in the PNR, but that is only useable by the ticket holder.

It it sounds like the initial transaction was properly authorized. What wasnít authorized was the cancelation of the itinerary. Iím genuinely not sure what the CC would do since the transaction wasnít fraudulent, though the cancelation was.

Is UA able to track down who actually Ďcanceledí it? Iím not so sure - maybe by IP - but since anyone with the PNR and pax last name can access the itinerary to cancel, if OP gave out that info., it could be difficult.
