Under Federal Regulation E, you may recover internet banking losses according to how soon you identify and report them to the Credit Union. If you report the losses within two days of receiving your statement, you may be liable for the first $50; after two days, the amount increases to $500 and after 60 days you could be legally liable for the full amount. However, VISA Zero Liability takes precedence over Regulation E for unauthorized VISA transactions. VISA Zero Liability means that upon notification from the cardholder of unauthorized VISA transactions, the issuer must limit the cardholder’s liability to zero. This requirement is not applicable for ATM cash disbursements, VISA corporate card, or VISA purchasing card transactions. In these cases, Regulation E will be followed.
Provisional credit must be credited back to the cardholder’s account within 10 business days of such notification.
The issuer may withhold provisional credit if the issuer determines that specific investigations are required, if the prior account history is unsatisfactory, or if the nature of transactions justifies the delay in crediting the cardholder’s account. The amount of the cardholder’s liability for unauthorized VISA transactions may be increased if the issuer determines that the cardholder was negligent or fraudulent in the handling of the account or the card.
