I understand your concern with the EC2 charges on your AWS Account.

To review the details, Open your Billing Console

Request you to open the particular month's bill in which the charges are present.

On that month's bill page, expand the line item - Elastic Compute Cloud

It will show the Region and if you expand it, it will show for which exact resource the charges are for.

Please refer - How do I delete or terminate my Amazon EC2 resources?

If you are unable to find the same. I request you to contact AWS Support so that we will be able to investigate it.

Thank you

The answer from @dnyanesh-db contains all the information you need, in particular the document in this link to https://repost.aws/knowledge-center/delete-terminate-ec2

Detailed advice on terminating resources you don't need any more is here https://repost.aws/knowledge-center/terminate-resources-account-closure

A drastic option if you want to terminate all running resources in your account is AWS Nuke (caution: use with care!) https://docs.aws.amazon.com/prescriptive-guidance/latest/patterns/automate-deletion-of-aws-resources-by-using-aws-nuke.html

You mention you have deleted your account, does that mean you have already closed your AWS account? If you want to close your account the instructions are here https://repost.aws/knowledge-center/close-aws-account

Close your account

To close your AWS account, do the following:

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console as the root user of the account.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose your account name, and then choose Account.
  3. Scroll to the Close Account section.
  4. Read and understand the terms of closing your account.
  5. Choose Close Account.

Within a few minutes, you receive email confirmation that your account is closed.
