    Here is how to file a credit card dispute with your credit card company.

    The process is pretty straight forward. The things you need to do to protect yourself are:

    • Write a dispute letter within 60 days of the date of the credit card statement that you receive that contains the incorrect charge.

    • Make sure you receive an acknowledgement of your dispute from the credit card company.

    • If they don’t remove the charge, your liability is limited to the lesser of the amount of the unauthorized charge or $50. If they insist on charging you more because the charge was not an unauthorized one, then you have a very short 1 year statute of limitations within which to file your lawsuit.
