Class Action Tracker: A TD Bank Fee Lawsuit Has Been Filed

Law360 has recently published an article which looks directly at how TD Bank takes in hundreds of millions of dollars in unlawful fees by hitting its American customers with multiple penalties for nonsufficient funds transactions. Within this, a New York woman has filed a class-action lawsuit last Monday, seeking repayment and punitive damages. Here’s what we know about the TD Bank Fee Lawsuit:

The suit pending before Manhattan U.S. District Judge Deborah A. Batts was lodged on behalf of a putative class by Mary Jennifer Perks, a checking customer at the $100 billion bank, which is based in Toronto and has its U.S. subsidiary’s headquarters in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

While TD Bank is in the right to charge a single $35 NSF fee for a single failed consumer transaction, the bank routinely assesses unlawful, multiple NSF fees by resubmitting transactions even when it “knows full well” the transaction will fail again, according to the complaint.

“TD Bank NSF fees fall disproportionately on racial and ethnic minorities, the elderly and the young, many of whom regularly carry low bank account balances,” the suit claims.

The suit says TD Bank is unlike other big banks, which do not engage in the allegedly abusive practice.

Perks says she was hit with a total of $140 worth of NSF fees earlier his year when she tried to make two PayPal transfers worth a total of less than $6.

The suit alleges further that the bank’s agreement with customers makes material misrepresentations and omits that fact that it will attempt to resubmit failed transactions for an additional $35.

The proposed class action claims for breach of contract, violation of New York law prohibiting deceptive business practices and unjust enrichment. It seeks repayment of the alleged overcharges to all customers, an order blocking future multiple charges, and damages.

    All banks re-submit in an effort to recover money. If she didn’t like the policy she should have sought out another bank that would cover her overdrafts and not charge her. I bank with RD in Florida and find them very accommodating.

  • Kevin carithers says:

    That’s about right for TD bank…. I put a cash deposit in everyday for my business account, they held the cash deposits for 3 days while checks were trying to clear(which they declined and continued to do so until they racked up 185.00 per charge) even while cash deposits that would have covered everything in the first place was trying to go thru. No one would explain how I ended up with over a thousand dollars in NSF Fees even with money sitting in the bank.

  • Jennifer says:

    I am absolutely NO fan of TD Bank, but when it comes to this particular situation it is actually PayPal that is re submitting the transaction, not TD Bank. PayPal will submit your transaction, to your bank, up to 3 times if it is returned to them as not having enough funds in the account.

  • Myriam Pierre says:

    I had accounts with them.I will definitely agree that they really are notorious with this thing they do.It should have been mentioned that when you have that 35.00 fee for non sufficient funds if you do not clear it in ten business days they will add an additional 10.00 fee.So much for a bank which claims to offer the service you’ve come to expect.

  • eugene desotell says:

    TD bank overcharged my account twice with fees then said I owed them money because they over drew the account. I reached out to the law firm who filed this suit and they tell me they are no longer looking for people who this happened to they apologize for saying the following: If you believe that what is alleged in the TD Bank Fee class action has affected you, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’d be happy to help you take a step in the right direction, fight this issue, and better enable you to join the consumer class action, The firm secretary said this is not the case.
