Huntington National Bank Complaint - Do Not Bank With Huntington
OHIO -- I opened up a free checking account almost a year ago with Huntington Bank. I forgot to write down a payment of $20 which put my account under $5. I had three small purchases on my debit card which amounted to less the $20 and got a $37.50 overdraft fee for each one (that's $111.50 in fees and my account was only over $5) I asked them it there was anything they could do about it and they were unhelpful and told me not to spend money I didn't have in my account. ( No kidding. Don't insult my intelligence. I don't want to pay overdraft fees) I told them it was an accident that I forgot to write down a payment. I told them that my husband started a new job and would be able to pay the fees until 2 weeks from then. Well after 5 days you get charged $35 for "overdraft extension" then $7 a day. So for going under $5 I got over $200 in fees. Outrages fees, charge $.25 every time you use you PIN number to make a purchase, charge $2 just for checking your balance at a non-Huntington ATM, Unhelpful and rude. Definitely NOT a customer service driven bank. ONLY AFTER THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.
I am going to write to the president of the bank, BBB, and my congressman to see about setting fee limits for banks. The do for cash advance companies.
