If you want to preserve your rights under the Act, here's what to do if you think your bill is wrong or if you need more information about an item on your bill: a. Do not write on the bill. On a separate sheet of paper, write (you may telephone your inquiry but doing so will not preserve your rights under this law) the following: i. Your name and account number (if any) ii. A description of the error and an explanation (to the extent that you can explain) why you believe it is an error. If you only need more information, explain the item you are not sure about and, if you wish, ask for evidence of the charge such as a copy of the charge slip. Do not send in your copy of a sales slip or other documents unless you have a duplicate for your records. iii. The dollar amount of the suspected error. iv. Any other information (such as your address) which you feel will help the creditor identify you or the reason for your complaint or injury. b. Send your billing error notice to the address on your bill which is listed after the words: "Send Inquiries To:" or similar wording. Mail it as soon as possible, but in any case, early enough to reach the creditor within 60 days after the bill was mailed to you. If you authorized your bank to automatically pay from your checking or savings account, any credit card bills from that bank that you think is wrong must be noticed by mailing your billing error notice so the creditor receives it within 16 days after the bill was sent to you. However, you do not have to meet this 16 day deadline to get the creditor to investigate your billing error claim. 2. The creditor must acknowledge all letters pointing out possible errors within 30 days of receipt, unless the creditor is able to correct your bill during that 30 days. Within 90 days after receiving your letter, the creditor must either correct the error or the creditor has explained the bill, the creditor has no further obligation to you even though you still believe there is an error, except as provided in paragraph 5 below. 3. After the creditor has been notified, neither the creditor nor an attorney nor a collection agency may send you collection letters or take other collection action with respect to the amount in dispute: but periodic statements may be sent to you, and the disputed amount can be applied against your credit limit. You cannot be threatened with damage to your credit rating or sued for the amount in question, nor can the disputed amount be reported to a credit bureau or to creditors as delinquent until the creditor has answered your inquiry. However, you remain obligated to pay the parts of your bill not in dispute. 4. If it's determined that the creditor has made a mistake on your bill, you will not have to pay any finance charges on any disputed amount. If the creator has not made an error, you may have to pay finance charges on the amount in dispute, and you will have to make up any missed minimum or required payments on the disputed amount. Unless you have agreed that your bill was/is correct, the creditor must send you a written notification of what you owe; you must be given the time to pay which you normally are given to pay undisputed amounts before any more finance charges or late payment charges on the disputed amount can be charged to you. 5. If the creditor's explanation does not satisfy you and you notify the creditor in writing within 10 days after you receive their explanation that you still refuse to pay the disputed amount, the creditor may report you to credit bureaus and other creditors once the matter between you and the creditor has been settled, the creditor must notify the credit bureaus and other creditors to whom you were reported as being delinquent of the subsequent resolution. * I agree.SignaturePlease sign using your mouse, finger or stylus.CAPTCHACommentsThis field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
