"$160.00 in fees for an overdraft of $4.67? You can close my accounts here. Good-day."
Fifth Third Bank charged me $33.00 in overdraft fees a day! This wasn't from multiple transactions, just one. It added up to over $160.00 in fees. The fact that they think this practice is OK disgusts me. I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only one this has happened to.
Maybe I should keep more in my checking and less elsewhere, but this is ridiculous. Eight years without a problem and they rape me the first chance they get. Caroline from Fifth Third Bank basically said it was my punishment for not signing up for overdraft protection...
The Mafia is lighter on fees than Fifth Third Bank, seriously.
Fifth Third Bank is run by thieves, but is there any bank that isn't? No? Maybe there's a bank that employs less thieves? Let me know.
Oh well, Fifth Third Bank is a CPZ anyway. Off to a new bank now, but which one?
I'd urge anybody who does business there to take their accounts elsewhere. You can tell how moral a company is by how they treat the average person. 1 trip to the gas pump and you might be next, that's what I did ($4.67 overdraft).
I'm not hurting financially from this. I'm just angered from it. I feel like I've been burgled (yes I said burgled). It makes me wonder what effect these policies and fees could have on hard working people who are barely making ends meet.
A daily fee of $33.00 is inexcusable.
