Key Steps Before You File a Claim

Confirm the transaction has posted (not pending).

We can only accept disputes for posted transactions. That’s because pending charges may change or drop off your account before they post. When transactions are pending, you may see a “P” or the word “Pending” next to the transaction on your account details page in Online or Mobile Banking[1]. As soon as it posts to your account, you may dispute the transaction.

Consider contacting the merchant.

If you are dissatisfied with an item you purchased or the service you received from a merchant, consider contacting the merchant directly before disputing the transaction with Regions. If you believe there is an unauthorized charge or a problem with a transaction on your account, contact us immediately.

Share helpful details.

Disputes are handled differently depending on the circumstances when the transaction occurred. When disputing a transaction, it’s important that you provide as much information as possible so that we can determine the appropriate steps to take during our investigation.
