Being charged by elastic cloud computing (nat gateways and elastic IP)

0

Hello, im a free tier user that was experimenting with ec2 instances 2 days ago, as expected i used some nat gateways and elastic IPs for my instances and was eventually charged for them (this was expected) i realized i was being charged the next morning and immediately released all my elastic ips, deleted the nat gateways, ec2 instances, everything, i left the vpc and ec2 services 100% back on default. My problem is, during the day i kept getting charged by both nat gateways and elastic ip services, even today (2 days later) the billing is increasing. Is this normal? will this stop after a few days because there's some kind of delay? By the way i experimented on 2 regions, mainly because my closest region (sao paulo) doesnt support t2.micro instances so i had to move to us east, but regardless of this i still deleted everything from both regions, and both regions are charging me for their services.

Last little detail, i know exactly what's being charged as a service, i checked all the billings and its 100% just elastic IPs and NAT gateways from us east and sao paulo.

If you're no longer being charged, however you were charged for hours after the termination of your AWS resources, then I suggest reaching out to billing to resolve this. Please note all AWS account owners have access to account and billing support free of charge.

You shouldn't be charged since you have released the elastic IPs, removed your EC2, and your NAT gateway. Make sure the EBS attached to the EBS was terminated too. Refer to the following knowledge articles. https://repost.aws/knowledge-center/ec2-billing-terminated https://repost.aws/knowledge-center/elastic-ip-charges

  • I never used EBS for anything, i still checked just in case and there's nothing created in either of the 2 regions I'm being charged. Right now both the VPC and EC2 modules are on default settings (meaning the only things that are left there are the ones that are created by default) The billing hasn't increased since i posted this, but it did increase overnight, and since last night i didn't change anything, everything was already deleted since yesterday morning.
