{nobHa'} is glossed as "give back, return" in KGT.  We have an example from 

   Huch nobHa'bogh verenganpu''e' yIvoqQo'
   Don't trust Ferengi who give back money.

You give money {Huch nob} to the Ferengi, then the Ferengi gives the money 
back {Huch nobHa'} to you.  In this context, "refund money" would be 
another translation of {Huch nobha'}:  "Don't trust Ferengi who give refunds".
