Frequently Asked Questions

I have questions about my credit card during the planned system upgrade.

All credit cards due to be renewed for the 1st time since the system upgrade will generate a new card number. This new number will show in your Scotia OnLine Banking, up to 2 months before the current card expires, in addition to your current credit card number.

Not to worry, you can continue using your card until it expires. Once you activate your renewal card, you will only see one (1) card number i.e. the new number on your profile. We sincerely apologise for any confusion this new feature has caused.

We’re so sorry for any inconvenience caused. Upon completion of the recent credit card system upgrade, some customers are seeing odd/ inaccurate descriptions or duplication of fee(s) on their statements. 

This error will be reversed on your next statement. Please know that we are doing everything we can to ensure this does not occur in the future.

We’re so sorry for any inconvenience caused. Post system upgrade, some customers are seeing duplicate transactions on Scotia OnLine Banking. 

Not to worry, this is a display error and does not affect your credit card balance or your available limit. Please know that we are working on having this resolved as quickly as possible and will work to ensure this does not occur in the future.

Post system upgrade, some customers are now seeing a foreign currency conversion/ exchange amount posted as a separate line item in the transactions section on Scotia OnLine Banking and in the Scotia Caribbean App.

This line item description is an error that occurred as a result of the system upgrade. Not to worry, this is not a new fee. The amount that is currently displayed, will be reversed in the coming week.
