Best Answer

A "debit" is a subtraction and "DDA" means checking account. You should contact your bank directly for information about exactly WHY your account was debited, but here are some possible reasons:

- You requested a transfer to another account from your checking account, and a DDA debit form was used to complete the transfer

- You are overdrafted on another account or owe the bank money and they have recollected their loss by debiting your checking account

- You deposited checks and totaled them wrong on the deposit slip, so the bank has made an adjustment to reflect the correct total

- You are being charged for another reason, such as a returned check
