Identifying Suspicious Transactions

Is there an unfamiliar transaction on your account or credit card that you don’t remember making? It could be that:

  • Another authorized user made the transaction but didn’t tell you.
  • You didn’t receive an item or service that you paid for.
  • You were charged the wrong amount or charged more than once for a purchase.
  • You canceled a service or subscription but are still being charged for it.
  • You didn’t receive a credit on your account that you were supposed to.

Here’s a few things to double-check:

  • Confirm that the charge or purchase wasn’t made by an authorized user without your knowing.
  • Check your receipt, especially the amount after leaving a tip.
  • Call the merchant. Usually the phone number is on the receipt or billing statement. This can often be the quickest way to resolve a dispute.
    • Sometimes a charge is found to be a merchant error.
    • Some merchants submit the charge under a name different or bill from a state different from where you made the purchase.

If you determine that the transaction was unauthorized and would like to dispute it, have the date of the transaction and dollar amount ready, and call us at (800) 480-2265, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Note that the transaction must have actually posted to your account (i.e., isn’t pending) before we can take action.
