Unauthorized debit transactions reported to ChexSystems?

Recommended Posts

If I have unauthorized debits in my checking account where hackers got my card info, and then I have to dispute the charges, can that show up as a derogatory item in my ChexSystems report?


I have checking accounts at two different banks.  Recently I noticed a bunch of unauthorized charges in one of them and I made a dispute which is currently under investigation.  This is the second time I have had unauthorized debits on that account within the last five years, and it is my second dispute.  Can Bank #1 report these unauthorized transactions to Bank #2 via ChexSystems?  If so, I assume I should take out some cash just in case I have to deal with an account freeze/closure.  I have seen horror stories about that when I was researching my identity theft.  Since I did not make these transactions, I do not think Bank #1 should report this to ChexSystems, but if they do I understand it is possible for Bank #2 to get this information as an update which can lead to problems with that other bank.  How does this work?  Do you think I should take out some cash just in case?  The investigation is supposed to take 10 days.

Chexsystems is usually not an issue for temporary overdrafts or unauthorized charges.

It may factor in if the charges are not resolved, and the account charges off.
