To report Chase credit card fraud, call (800) 955-9060 or the number on the back of your card. Like all credit cards, Chase cards offer a $0 fraud liability guarantee. This means you won't be on the hook for purchases you didn't make, as long as you report any unauthorized charges that show up.
How to Deal With Chase Credit Card Fraud
Freeze your credit card. If you suspect unauthorized use of your card, the first thing you should do is freeze it. Freezing a credit card stops any further purchases with the physical card, but it won't stop recurring charges or prevent you from using the card through a digital wallet.
To freeze a Chase credit card, log in to your online account or mobile app and navigate to "Account services". Then, look for the "Lock & Unlock Your Card" option under "Things you can do".
Review your credit card charges. You can view your payment history online. Look through your recent transactions and catalog any and all unauthorized charges.
Call the Chase credit card fraud department. The phone number for the Chase credit card fraud department is (800) 955-9060 for consumer cards. For business credit cards, call (888) 269-8690, instead. Contacting Chase by phone is the fastest way to report fraud, but another option is to send a secure message from your Chase credit card account.
If your credit card information was compromised, Chase can cancel your card and issue a replacement. The new Chase credit card will usually arrive in 3 to 5 business days.
To dispute a Chase charge, log in to your Chase account online and search for the transaction to dispute, or call Chase customer service at 1 (800) 955-9060. Alternatively, the address to dispute a charge by mail is:

Check for a confirmation e-mail from Chase verifying receipt of the inquiry.
Before you dispute a charge through Chase, you should first contact the merchant associated with the charge on your Chase 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 Chase.
Once you've initiated the dispute, Chase 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 Chase card as you normally would while a dispute is ongoing.
Chase 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.
You have 60 days to dispute a credit card charge, per the Fair Credit Billing Act of 1974. The 60 days start from the day the statement containing the erroneous charge was mailed to you or made available online (if you’re enrolled in paperless billing).
So, waiting for a paper statement to arrive in the mail could cost you at least a few of those 60 days, whereas you can examine your statement online right away. You can typically start the dispute process online or by giving the card’s issuer a call. The issuer must acknowledge your dispute within 30 days of receiving it and resolve the matter within 90 days.… read full answer
Here’s how long you have to dispute a credit card charge:
You have 60 days from when the relevant monthly statement was sent. That’s the postmark date for paper statements or the sent date for an email statement.
The issuer must send a written acknowledgment within 30 days of receiving your dispute. They must evaluate your claim and contact you with their decision within 90 days of receiving the dispute. If they agree with you, you’ll get a refund. Otherwise, you’ll still have to pay for the charge.
The credit card’s issuer may ask you to submit your dispute in writing, along with proof that the charge is incorrect, like receipts or a police report.
Because of the limited time to dispute, you should always go over your statements right after you receive them. Make sure there are no charges you didn’t make, no wrong amounts, no inflated tips, and no items that arrived damaged that were not refunded.
If you review your monthly statement online, you may see a button to dispute charges. Otherwise, call the number on the back of your card to reach the issuer’s customer service and explain the situation.
While 60 days usually is plenty of time to dispute a credit card charge, it’s always a good idea to be proactive. Waiting too long might mean having to pay more than you really owe.
Yes but it’s important to realize that you are legally liable for everything he or she does. In other words, when you agree to give another person access to your account, you also agree to pay for their purchases and deal with the consequences of their mistakes.
