The bank/credit union said I overdrew my account several times in one day and charged me a fee for each overdraft. What should I do?


You can reduce your overdraft fees by monitoring your account balance, opting out of debit card overdraft, and setting up a linked savings or credit account to cover overdrafts.

The CFPB is currently looking closely at overdraft practices and collecting information about them. If you have an experience you would like to share with us, we’d like to hear from you.
