Additional Notes

Complaint: I Overdrafted my bank account accidently. I received a 30 dollar overdraft fee and I understood and accepted that. Then they started to charge 5 dollars a day for my account being overdrafted. I am on social security and will not receive any money until the first of the month. all in all this will cost me over 100 dollars on the overdrafts I believe and it is really upsetting. I called the bank to see if they can at least stop charging me and they said no. I feel it is wrong to charge as much as they do for a overdraft.

Desired Settlement: I would like the 5 dollars daily they have been charging me reversed on my account. After the first when I get my check I would like to close my account. I would also like them to explain it much better that there policy is to charge these overdraft fees. I thought it was one or the other not both and they really need to explain that to their customers.

Business Response:

******* opened his account with us in March, 2014.

When he opened the account, Nicolet’s ********* ****** ******* discussed the overdraft protection program with him.

She also gave him the proper account disclosures, which includes fees that could be charged on the account.

Since opening the account, he has been overdrawn twice for a total of 31 days.

In this specific case, our ********* ****** ******* proactively called ******* to let him know his account was overdrawn.

She did not reach him so she sent a letter.

******* proceeded to call our branch, complain about the fees and then hung up.

The ********* ****** ******* called, emailed, and called again. 

On June 26, ******* make a deposit to cover the fees. 

******* said that he was happy with the resolution of the overdraft fees and that he will contact the BBB and let them know we worked with him to resolve the issue.

Consumer Response:

[A default letter is provided here which indicates your acceptance of the business's response.  If you wish, you may update it before sending it.]

Better Business Bureau:

I did clear this up with the bank and we came to a reasonable outcome. It took a little bit of explaining but i now understand the bank rules and fine print better.

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.
