You must do all of the following: 1) give us your name and account number (if any), 2) describe the error or transaction you are not sure about and explain why you believe it is an error or why you need more information, 3) give us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

Regulation D DisclosureRegulation D is a federal regulation that limits the way withdrawals may be made from a savings account. Regulation D allows a maximum of 6 pre-authorized automatic/electronic transfers or withdrawals per month which includes ACH debits, overdraft transfers, telephone transfers, debit card transactions, wire transfers and online home banking initiated transfers.
Once you have exceeded the limit of 6 during the month, a fee will be deducted from your savings account for each subsequent transaction described above. Excessive use of a savings account as a transaction account (using it like a checking account) is prohibited and will subject the account to closure. To comply with Reg D requirements and avoid fees, please limit the number of withdrawals/transfers from your savings account to those made in person, by mail or by ATM. We recommend making deposits (direct deposit) to your checking account and paying bills from your checking account by check or debit card.
