810-Federal Trade Commission

BILLING ERRORS go back


Consumers can call the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to obtain information on the Federal Fair Credit Billing Act, for billing questions or to file a complaint or to get free information on consumer issues:


To correct a credit card billing error, consumers should follow these basic guidelines:

1. Write to the creditor at the address given for "billing inquiries," not the address for sending payments, and include your name, address, account number and a description of the billing error.

2. Send your letter so that it reaches the creditor within 60 days after the first bill containing the error was mailed to you.

3. Send your letter by certified mail, return receipt requested, so you have proof of what the creditor received, include copies (not originals) of sales slips or other documents that support your position. Keep a copy of your dispute letter.
