Billing question


I recently created a zero-spend budget and don't have any services outside of the free tier services. I'm being charged for a KMS key that I don't have or ever created. How do I dispute this?

  • Are you referring to the $1/month charge for a KMS Key? Can you show us the exact wording on the Bill? Also, please let us know where/how have you searched to confirm that you don't have the key.

As a precaution, we recommend checking the KMS keys in all regions to see if there are any keys other than those managed by AWS.

  • Thanks for your answer. I had created it in a different region. AWS is tricky to learn but I'm learning. Thanks!
