Guarantee trust bank recently introduced a new platform that allows their customers to notify them whenever there is an error during withdrawal from any Automated Teller Machine (ATM), such error is called Dispense Errors.What is Dispense Errors
Dispense Errors occurs when an account is debited for a transaction while the amount of money involved is not received, it might seem as if the transaction is completed or that the transaction fails at the point of withdrawing from an ATM or while making payments via POS/Web but your account is debited without properly completing the transaction.
It's more painful when you have cash that you wanted to withdraw from ATM only to notice that your money has been debited without actually giving you the cash and maybe you don't even have another money to withdraw while rectifying the issue with the bank but the good news is that some bank can be quick in resolving the dispense errors while some will ask you to wait for between 2 - 5 business working days.What to do when you are facing dispense error
From experience, the dispense error can automatically be reversed immediately without you knowing which means you might need to wait for 5 or 10 minutes before checking your account balance again but in some case, it takes some time and might require you to Log and notify your bank about the dispense Errors.How to complain or Log Dispense Errors to your bank
