Elastic IP address not attached to a running instance per hour



My Billing Details show that i am being charged for the Elastic IP address which is not associated to any instance. I checked multiple regions (the ones which i have used) but i am not able to see any elastic IP address anywhere.

How do i stop this charge?

I have checked your account but I don't see any EIPs in it.

However I can see that you released 1 EIP from ap-south-1 on 2019-01-16 and 4 EIPs from ap-southeast-1 (1 on 2019-01-15 and 3 on 2019-01-17). I assume that your issue has been resolved by now but please let us know if you need any further help.

Thanks for the response. I believe I am not charged on the EIP anymore now. However, I am not sure why my put requests are increasing when I am not even using any S3 bucket. Can you please help me with that as well? Is there any such service which I am using which uses S3 bucket in background?
