Unsure of a transaction on your account?

If you’re unsure about a transaction on your statement follow these steps:

  1. Often businesses use a different trading name to the one you’d expect to see. Check our list of retailer names.

    If you can’t see the trading name on the list, you can also do a quick internet search of the name showing on your statement. 

  2. Have a look at the most frequent reasons our customers contact us when they are unsure about a transaction.

  3. If you recognise the payee but think the amount is wrong or the transaction shouldn’t have been made:

  • Contact the retailer directly to find out what they’ve charged you for and if they’ve made a mistake.
  • If they have, request a refund with the retailer. Often retailers such as Amazon will be able to correct this for you very quickly.
  • If you’re unsuccessful in resolving the issue with the retailer you may be able to claim a refund by raising a dispute. Just fill out our disputed transaction form here.


If it’s none of the above and you think you’ve been subject to fraud visit our Fraud Prevention Centre for how to contact us and what information we need.

Frequent reasons for transactions you’re unsure of

  • If you have a joint account, could the other account holder have made the transaction?

  • Did you recently start a free trial for something where the trial period may have ended? Check the terms and conditions of any agreement you’ve signed up to. 

  • Have you recently set up a regular automatic payment to a company? Also known as a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA). This can often be for subscription-based goods or services such as magazines.

  • Could a payment you’ve recently set up be incorrect in Internet Banking? You can check the payment details in your transaction history. In most cases you can contact the bank the payment has gone to to see if the money can be returned.

  • Is it a foreign transaction? If the amount on your receipt is different to the amount on your statement this could be due to changes in the exchange rate.
