When it comes to finances, people put their faith in banks and expect them to protect their money. Unfortunately, some financial institutions that people trust, take advantage of customer faith, in order to illegally make more money. While certain banks take pride in caring for their customers’ money, others are more interested in making money, even at the expense of their customers.
An overdraft fee is implemented when customers spend more than they have in their bank accounts. The expectation is that the customer is charged a reasonable fee for the amount they go over and that these penalties only occur when customers truly go over their limits. Usually, when you sign up with a bank, this information is explained to you and clarified in writing.
While overdraft fees are sound polices when applied fairly, in the case of PNC Bank, overdraft fees were charged unfairly, causing millions of vulnerable customers, including those who were automatically switched to PNC bank from BBVA, to suffer. Transparency of PNC overdraft policies were not clarified to these customers. Many were not told they needed virtual PNC notifications to inform them when funds were low.
