It seems like every day there is a new fee or charge associated with banking. Want to speak to a teller: Pay up. Want to have a checking account with the bank: Pay up. Between the new fees and the new ways of charging for old fees, it sometimes seems like it would be better to keep your money under your mattress. When you factor in the Wall Street bailout in 2008, the fees seem like salt on the wound for Main Street.
Fortunately, firms like Finkelstein Thompson LLP have been pursuing justice on behalf of consumers. Over the past three years, Finkelstein Thompson LLP has brought class actions against some of the largest national and regional banks in the United States for their overdraft fee practices. These cases have included allegations of the banks re-sequencing debit transactions in highest-to-lowest order to maximize overdraft fee revenue at the expense of its customers. A number of Finkelstein Thompson LLPâ€™s overdraft fee cases have settled or are in the process of settling.
If you are upset with how your bank is charging you overdraft fees or fees in general, Finkelstein Thompson LLP will gladly look into the matter for you free of charge.
