Frequently asked questions

When I file a dispute, what information should I include?

Documentation helps us investigate disputes. If you can, please include the following:

      • Receipts or invoices
      • Information about delivery and shipping
      • Confirmation email(s)

When filing a dispute:

      • We'll deactivate your card if it was, lost, stolen, or used for unauthorized transactions.
      • It might be quicker to contact the merchant that made the charge if the issue involves merchandise or service.

If you're in the process of disputing transactions on your Checking Account and are approved for temporary credits or are given final credits for your claim:

      • You'll receive an additional check for the amount credited to your Checking Account.
      • Alternatively, you'll receive a single check if the credits are provided before the first check is issued.
