SunTrust Fraud Protection Policy

SunTrust acknowledges that its banking system isn't impregnable to cybercriminals. Therefore, it cautions its users to have strong passwords that can't be easily hacked. They also urge their customers to change their passwords regularly and avoid under-secured networks.

SunTrust's chargeback policy has also been made clear to all its users, so they know the rules before disputing any SunTrust transaction.

SunTrust’s dispute process time generally varies from 1 to 6 months. Once a transaction has been filed, you aren't supposed to make any more charges on the account.
