Most Direct Express card holders call the dispute resolutions department to contest suspicious or unauthorized charges on their card. We get questions all the time about Direct Express Dispute form or fax number. There is actually no downloadable dispute form on the website to formally report your suspicious activity. There is also no fax number on the website to send in a formal complaint. The only way to dispute a charge on your card is to call Customer Service at the number below:
— Customer Service: 1-888-741-1115
— Hearing impaired: 1-866-569-0447
— International: 1-765-778-6290 (Collect)
Customer Service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If you have charges on your card and need to look into where it came from, call the customer service number and file a complaint. Make sure you have your card number and the specific transaction you want them to investigate (date of transaction, amount and the merchant it was made at).
When you call customer service, they are going to ask you questions to confirm your identity to make sure you are who you say you are and that you are the actual card holder, so be ready to provide information including your social security number, date of birth and any other identifiers they may want.
