Arizona Federal Credit Union Wrongful Overdraft Charges Phoenix Arizona
I was running tight in my checking account, as I'm waiting on payments to come through. On 1/7/14, I had written 1 check for $270.00 and prior to that I had 1 outstanding check for $20.00, which equals a total of $290.00. On January 7, 2014, two deposits were made into my account - 1 for $168.00 and 1 for $20.00 - both cash deposits, but the $20.00 was made into the ATM. I had $107.13 in my account already. So, after the deposits, I had a balance of $295.13. At 10:00 a.m. on January 8, 2014, I checked my account on-line and it stated I had an available balance of $295.13 - with no pending transactions. I checked my on-line account at 1:30 p.m. and both checks totalling $290.00 went through leaving me a balance of $5.13, and then after that posting on my statement, there was a charge from Arizona Federal Credit Union for a $35.00 overdraft fee, leaving me with a balance of -$29.87. This is the 3rd or 4th time they did this to me. I called customer service, and after being on hold for over 30 minutes while she "reviewed my account", the rep told me that the $20.00 cash deposited the day before was pending at the time of the checks clearing. I told her no, because I had checked my statement that morning and I had an available balance of $295 before those checks came through, and it clearly shows on my statement (which I have printed out) that both deposits were posted before the checks went through. They refuse to reverse the charges. I have another statement from weeks ago that they did the same thing. How can they get away with this and just charge me when they feel like it? I refuse to put any money in that account until they give me my money back... It's ridiculous that I have to fight with them, and they have to "review my account" to decide if they are going to reverse their error? Aren't there laws preventing them from doing this?
