BB&T Bank BB&T Bank Charged Me In Excess Of $250 In Overdraft Fees That Was A Bank Error To Begin With Pompano Beach Florida
As an Ebay and Amazon merchant, I deal with a lot of transactions and sometimes I have to refund a customer. 2 weeks ago I did so in the amount of $8.09 from my paypal account unaware that the default settings on paypal always set to refund out of bank account as opposed to paypal account. This refund of $8.09 however overdrew my account by $5 and change. During the refund I was transferring money from paypal into account as well, again, unaware that the refund came out of the bank. Since the account got overdrawn, the bank assessed a $36 overdraft fee. The nightmare is about to begin.
This incident of overdraft charges piled on top of overdraft charges has escalated within a 2 week period into $250+ currently. Once I discovered this (which took a few days since I theoretically had nothing to worry about), I immediately contacted the bank only to have the manager tell me that they only permit 1 courtesy action every 24 months. [continued below]....
I have never in my life dealt with such a group of finance gangster amateurs who call themselves professionals. Although the amount isn't worth a lawsuit (and they are aware of this) it is worth noting their predatory tactics and practices. Stay away from BB&T Bank if you don't want to get ripped off for hundreds of dollars!!!
