Complaint Review: Regions Financial Corporation
Regions Financial Corporation Regions Bank Regions - Excessive Activity Fees - Charging to use your account fees Birmingham, Alabama
*Author of original report: Fees finally refunded
I just checked my account online with regions this morning and found that that charged me $420.00 for "Excessive Activity Fee". After visiting my local branch they informed me that my Money Market Checking account was limited to 6 transactions per month. They charged me $15 for every time I used my account via check or check card.
When I opened the account I was not informed that there were transaction limits on my account. When I ordered checks, I was not informed that there were transaction limits on my account. When I ordered my check card (you guessed it) I was not informed that there were transactions limits on my account. To make matters worse, they did not charge these automatically after every transaction, but instead they waited until the end of the month. Had one or two of these appeared on my account, I would have immediately recognized that there was something wrong and contacted regions for resolution.
I have spoken to my local branch and to Region's national customer service. They are sympathetic to my problem but claim they do not have the authority to help me. They have been unable to let me speak with someone who can help me.
