Resolve a TCF Bank Transaction Dispute the Easy Way

DoNotPay has all the answers to settling a dispute with the bank without all the wrangling and headaches. Unfortunately, working with a bank and handling finances can become a hassle. If a fraud gets ahold of your card, it can result in a TCF bank merchant dispute. There are a wide variety of reasons for opening a TCF bank transaction dispute. Here's the easy way to figure out with our simple guide.

Why Do Chargebacks Occur?

There are various reasons as to why a cardholder needs to dispute a merchant charge, such as

  • Someone has lost their card, and another individual picked it up. Rather than returning it, they ran up charges on the account.
  • Merchant error. A merchant could have processed duplicate requests.
  • Bank error. In rare instances, the bank could have made an error.
  • An authorized user on the account purchased something without informing the account owner.

How To Get a Refund on Your Own?

While DoNotPay will provide you with a letter to build and start a case, you can get a refund yourself by contacting the bank personally. Here are possible ways to settle the chargeback yourself.

TelephoneYou may contact your bank and ask them to review the transaction with you. Your card will typically have an 800 number for Customer Service on the bank of the card. If you are missing the card, then their toll-free number is 800-823-2265. Or, look up the phone number of the branch or local office and give them a call. Whether it's the local branch or bank headquarters, they will figure out how to direct your call.
In-PersonIf you bank with TCF, the chances are that a branch is nearby. You may want to go in and speak with them in person. Going to the bank might be a more personal touch, but there's no predicting what type of clerk you will encounter.

How To Get a TCF Bank Transaction Dispute Settled With DoNotPay?

is the easiest way to settle a transaction dispute with TCF Bank. All you need to do is follow the steps below:

  1. Go to DoNotPay on your web browser or app and choose "File a Chargeback". Click on the link for "Get Protected".
  2. Confirm your details. Once you are in the right portal, you will need to confirm your personal information and the bank account where this transaction occurred. You simply want to verify that we have the correct information.
  3. Enter details about the dispute. First, you need to select the payment method used, even improperly or in dispute. It does not mean that you are validating the charge. You are doing the opposite and challenging the purchase. This information is required to help us contact the right bank and merchant, and process your request. You will also have to provide the TCF's mailing address, which is their street address.
  4. After entering the bank's information through a couple of simple questions, you have to provide the company’s name that you want your refund from. It's probably a good idea to have a receipt handy at this point or to search for the merchant if you do not have a paper receipt available.
  5. Build your evidence using our questions in the system. DoNotPay will ask you a series of questions, just like a lawyer would to verify the nature of the dispute and garner information. We call this making a case and gathering the evidence. The system will ask you why you think the purchase is fraudulent.
  6. It will begin by asking you whether you recognize the charge. You will review the questions and select the reasons that match your situation. Some questions will be whether you think another authorized user made the charge or if the account was breached in a hack or theft. The only thing you need to do is answer the series of questions and, again, verify some information about yourself.

The information you will confirm is your name, date of birth, and other data to verify that you are indeed requesting the TCF bank merchant dispute.

  1. Decide whether DoNotPay sends them a letter or you do. DoNotPay will use the information you provide to generate a letter to the relevant parties. It will populate the fields and either send the letter on your behalf, or you can print and send it yourself. This letter will provide the information necessary to process a refund from the bank. Once you enter this information, a request begins automatically, and the bank is sent details about the request based upon what you provided.
