Cohen & Malad, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit against United Community Bank on behalf of its banking customers who have checking accounts and have been charged improper overdraft fees. The lawsuit challenges UCB’s alleged routine practice of assessing overdraft fees on debit card transactions that did not overdraw checking accounts, along with multiple insufficient funds fees on a single transaction.

“It is our hope that Mr. Jones, representing the class on behalf of which this lawsuit was filed, can put a stop to UCB’s unfair and improper fee practices,” said Lynn Toops, a partner at Cohen & Malad, LLP. “Customers put their trust in the bank to comply with its own promises. Those customers who have been victimized by UCB’s improper practices, in direct violation of UCB’s promises, have suffered very significant financial losses. It is our goal to not only be granted restoration of these improper fees, but to hold UCB accountable for their wrongful actions.”
