BANK OVERDRAFT FEES  #NSF #NSFCHARGE #NSFFEE #OVERDRAFT PLEASE SUPPORT BY SIGNING THIS PETITION. STOP OUTRAGEOUS BANKING FEES. I had a -$4.72 in my checking account & was charged a $36 overdraft fee. I had deposits coming in but because it was the weekend it took a few days to post to my account. Unfortunately by that time BB&T charged me an additional $36 for my account being negative for 5 days. They counted the holiday weekend as consecutive days not business days. I actually had a positve dollar amount in my account but because I was being charged an overdraft fee & 5 day consecutive negative balance fee my account went in the negative so that the deposits were not enough to get my account out of the negative. Also the higher dollar amount will go in first no matter the date/time & pending posts are being charged overdraft fees. Any deposits will post after deductions so that more overdraft fees can be appied. This should be illegal. Banks have been constantly raising overdraft fees on insufficient funds no matter the amount.  I remember when NSF Fee use to be $3 back in 90's. Middle class people with low or no bank balance living paycheck to paycheck are the people who incur these charges and not rich people with huge bank balance. Currently banks are charging around $36 NSF fee per item (BB&T), which is outrageous. We want our government to regulate banking industry. This is a huge issue and something needs to be done about it.  I ASK FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN REGULATING BANKING OVERDRAFT FEES BY MAKING OUR GOVERNMENT REGULATE BANKING INDUSTRY. LET’S JOIN HANDS IN BRINGING AWARENESS AND BY SIGNING THIS PETITION.
