Reason Code NF – Non-Receipt of Cash from an ATM
Why did I receive this chargeback?
The cardholder claims not to have received cash from an ATM withdrawal.
How long can the issuer wait to file a chargeback?
The maximum amount of time that can pass between the transaction processing date and the chargeback processing date is 120 calendar days.
However, the timeline may be extended if the issuer first submitted a retrieval request. If the retrieval request process finishes after the 120 day deadline, the issuer will have an additional 30 days to file a chargeback.
