The rise in the number of electronic payments and devices has increased the number of unauthorized electronic fund transfers (EFTs). Reg E provides protections for consumers from unauthorized EFTs – and also imposes many responsibilities and obligations on your financial institution. Reg E is complicated and, given the rapidly changing types of electronic payments and devices, there is often confusion as to whether Reg E applies. It is further complicated because there is a legal distinction between a Reg E claim and a merchant dispute under the Visa/MC rules. This webinar will explain how to properly handle unauthorized EFTs under Reg E.
- What transactions are covered by Reg E?
- What are your institution’s responsibilities under Reg E?
- What transactions are deemed to be unauthorized?
- When can the consumer be held liable for an unauthorized EFT?
- How to properly handle unauthorized EFT claims
