BankAtlantic Complaint - Manipulates Information To Charge Overdraft Fees
FT. LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA -- BankAtlantic manipulates your transactions. I am very careful to check my account on-line to see if checks have been paid and transactions I make using the debit card. I make certain no to go over the amount of money I know I have in the bank. I do usually use up most of the balance in the account. That is what they like. You make a deposit and they will show it as available after 24 or so hours. Then, BAM! They hit you with overdraft fees for transactions that happened a day or two before the deposit.
When you talk to them, they simple cannot give you a decent explanation. In my opinion they manipulate checks paid as well as debit transactions against your deposits. At times getting 10 overdraft fees at $32 a pop – BankAtlantic sure uses unfair practices.
