$64 overdraft charge, heck!!!

I made a mistake when I did not check my account before I went shopping last Friday. I spent just three dollars over my available balance. But before that, I already have made three deposits/transfers from Paypal three days prior to shopping. Normally, the processing takes 3 days at the most. I trusted my instinct that it's gonna happen again but it did not. Til now, it's still "pending". Oh gosh, now I have to pay $64 for the lil amount of money I used.

The problem here is that, I was not notified by the bank (whitney) about the increase of overdraft fee. I thought it was still between $30-$40. What a heck! $64 is too much! I am bursting with anger right now. Might as well call customer service to complain and for clarifications after posting.

I know I have my share of stupidity with this incident. My plan is not to transfer money anymore after I dealt with this and just stick with my Paypal debit card. THat way, I can avoid this crap from happening again.

Shame on WHitney Bank!!!

That's outrageous! I would throw a fit if it were $30! I haven't bounced a check in years (knock on wood) but I always thought there was some sort of $5 allowance. That's shamful!

Na mao jud na ako mami bantay ko prmi sa balance ky maru ning mga bangko dri dugay nila iprocess ng mga deposits abutan pa syam2 nya gadahum ka naa money imo account nya wla pa diay. Ang nakapungot pa jud ky ang overdraft fee mao lng gihapon bisan unsa kagamay imo magamit. I hope you will have this straighten out. Next time be cautious ky negosyo mn gud na lagi mao pabor jud sa ila prmi. Ingatz

$64 for one overdraft? That is astronimical. I would surely be getting someone on the phone to explain. Hope it's just an error.
