There are basically two types of Electronic Funds Transfer or EFT transactions that you may question on your statement: disputed and unauthorized.
Disputed Electronic Funds Transfer
A disputed electronic funds transfer transaction means you participated in some way but the outcome was not what you expected. (Get more details about EFT transaction disputes.)
Unauthorized Electronic Funds Transfer
An unauthorized electronic funds transfer transaction means someone else used your card without your authority and you received no benefit for that transaction. In short, it is a fraudulent transaction. (Get more details about unauthorized EFT transactions.)
There are several differences between disputed transactions and unauthorized transactions. The biggest difference is who initiated the transaction, either currently or in the past. If you participated in any way, the transaction is disputed, not unauthorized.
