One of the most annoying situations you can be in is having a dispense error happening to you. Dispense error occurs when you are debited without the transaction being completed be it a transfer, withdrawer or bills payment. You then have to go to the bank and waste time, which is money by the way, to lodge a complaint.
What it if I told you you can get this done yourself without having to go to the bank. What you don’t know is that these banks have online platforms where you can log your dispense error.
While matters concerning banks or financial services are quite sensitive, this is why this process does not ask for your pin or full card details. Also, you can only do this on the official website of the bank in question. Under no circumstance should you reveal your details to any third party including this site. Even the official channels don’t ask for information like PIN, full card number or CVV2 number that can be used to execute a transaction on your account.
As at the time of writing this, only Zenith and GTBank have online dispense error logging platforms that do not require logging to internet banking. For the other banks like UBA, Access bank, Firstbank and others you will have to go through their other channels. Other contact channels you can easily use is their email, call-line or live chat where applicable.
