The attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating potential claims on behalf of National Bank of Arizona customers who were charged overdraft fees after their transactions were reordered. It has been alleged that the bank processed their customers’ transactions in a highest-to-lowest order, rather than chronologically. As a result, the customers’ account would reach a negative balance more quickly, allowing the bank to maximize the number of overdraft fees they could charge, according to the allegations. If you suspect you were subjected to transaction sorting by National Bank of Arizona, you may be able to file a claim seeking compensation for unfair fees assessed to your account.

It has been alleged that by engaging in overdraft transaction sorting, customers are being charged more overdraft fees than would have been necessary had the bank not reordered the transactions. For example, assume a customer has $50 in their checking account and makes sequential debits for $10; $10; $20; and $50. If these transactions are processed in the order in which they were made, the customer would only incur one overdraft fee for their final purchase; however, if these transactions are cleared in a highest-to-lowest sequence, the customer would be charged three overdraft fees.
Many of the nation’s largest banks have faced legal action claiming that they engaged in transaction sorting, and at least 14 of these banks have reached multi-million dollar settlements in these cases.
Currently, the attorneys working with ClassAction.org have launched an investigation into the overdraft protection policies of smaller, regional banks to determine if they have also engaged in these practices. If you believe you were charged unfair overdraft fees by National Bank of Arizona or any other local bank, visit ClassAction.org today for more information.
