Overdraft Fees

Were you charged outrageous fees for "overdraft protection"?

What banks call “overdraft protection” is really just a high cost, short term loan that amounts to more than the overdraft itself. We want to hear your experience with overdraft fees so we can fight for better protections for you. Your account of what has happened to you will help us push for real reform.
