Before you dispute a charge through Bank of America, you should first contact the merchant associated with the charge on your card. Merchants have easier access to your purchase information and should be better able to quickly remedy the issue. If for some reason, the merchant is unable or unwilling to work with you on a disputed charge, you can then file a dispute with Bank of America.
Once you’ve initiated the dispute, Bank of America will then contact the merchant and review any information provided by both parties. You won’t be charged for the disputed transaction, nor any associated fees or interest, while the dispute is under investigation. And you can still use your BankAmericard credit card as you normally would while a dispute is ongoing.
Bank of America will notify you of the outcome of the dispute after they’ve completed their investigation. They will either issue a chargeback to your account for the contested amount, or allow the charge to stand. If the disputed charge is ruled to be valid, you would then have to pay that amount, including any applicable fees and interest charges that accrued during the dispute, starting from the original purchase date.
