  • charging multiple overdraft fees on the same transaction 

Financial institutions we are investigating for these practices include:

  • Valley National
  • Zions Bank
  • Denali Federal Credit Union
  • Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union
  • TD Bank
  • Bank of America
  • Boeing Employees' Credit Union 
  • HSBC
  • BankUnited
  • BNB Bank
  • City National Bank(an RBC subsidiary)
