If you receive an SMS alert about an unrecognized transaction

We send SMS alerts every time you use your HSBC Credit Card for at least Php1,000 or if there are suspicious activities in your credit / debit card accounts. If you don’t recognize the transaction that we sent you through SMS, please call our hotline as soon as you can.

  • We’ll block and replace your card during the call. Replacement card delivery will be within 10 banking days from the replacement date request.
  • If the transaction has been posted on your account, you’ll be asked to fill out the dispute form right away.
  • For transactions that haven’t posted when you called our hotline, you need to wait for 5 banking days from the time that you called our hotline before you can submit your dispute form.

If you don't recognise a transaction in your statement of account (SOA)

There may be a number of reasons why your SOA reflects a charge that you don't recognise. Here are some possible explanations that might help you identify the transaction:

  • Check the retailer's name
    Retailers are sometimes registered under a different name, so the one on your statement might not be what you expect. Try looking up the name on the internet to see if you can find more details on it.
  • Look out for additional charges
    Some retailers, such as hotels, taxis, airlines or hired cars services, can add surcharges to your basic payment package.
  • Check your receipts and your email inbox
    Dig out your receipts to see if you have any from the same day and for the same amount, but listed under a different retailer name. Also, have a look at your email inbox, as you'll often get digital confirmation emails or receipts, and these might also contain the retailer's registered name.
  • Adjacent transactions
    Check other transactions appearing on your statement with a similar timestamp. This may remind you of where you were when the transaction that you don't recognise was made.
  • Consider exchange rates
    If the transaction you don't recognise was made in a foreign currency, the final amount could be different to the amount at the time of your purchase. For refund transaction, the refund amount in Philippine Peso could be different to the amount of your purchase.
  • Check with your supplementary cardholders
    If you have supplementary cards under your account, ask if the supplementary cardholders might have made the transaction.
  • Check recurring payments
    It could be that the transaction is part of a series of ongoing payments related to something you set up or subscribed to some time ago.
  • Free trials
    If you signed up for a free trial recently, check the free trial period and its corresponding terms and conditions. The free trial could have expired, and you may now be paying for goods or services.

If you still don't recognise the transaction after taking these steps, contact us immediately.

How to contact us for your dispute

It's important that you call us at our Customer Service numbers* as soon as possible once you know that there is an issue. You'll need to raise a dispute within 60 days after the transaction date so that we’ll have enough time to process your dispute request.

You can raise your dispute request by filling out an online dispute form:

HSBC Credit Card

HSBC Philippines Debit Card

HSBC Savings Bank Debit Card

We may require supporting documents (e.g. receipts, credit memo or proof of return) before we can process your dispute as required by Visa and MasterCard. If we don't receive the completely filled out online dispute form along with the supporting documents within the specified time frame, this means that you accept the disputed transaction/s as valid and will pay for the transaction/s.

The dispute process may take up to 90 calendar days from date of receipt of your complete online dispute form and supporting documents. We'll acknowledge your submitted documents and we'll reach out to you through your contact details on record if we need more details to complete our review. Otherwise, we'll send you the result before the 90-day period ends.
