I made a deposit in the morning and got an overdraft fee that day. Why?

Overdraft fees are charged the day after the check is received to debit your account. Pending RDC deposits will be reviewed prior to returning a check and will be paid with a fee.

I submitted a check through remote deposit capture, then I received an email instructing me to bring the check to a branch office. Why?

The submitted check was outside the criteria for your account. There can be various reasons for this, but generally it would be due to the check being illegible. Therefore, the check should be brought to one of our branches.

The amount I entered for a deposit is different from the amount I got credit for. Why?

After reviewing the deposited item, it was determined that the amount entered was different from the legal amount on the check. If you still have a question, email us at us at remoteservices@canyonstatecu.org or call us at 623.580.6000 or 800.224.3330.
