Unfair Overdraft Fee Claims Against PNC Bank and BBVA (now PNC)
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP (MWA), is accepting cases against PNC bank for their allegedly unfair overdraft practices.
PNC bank is a multi-billion-dollar company sporting nearly 3,000 branches and over 9,000 ATMs nationwide. In June 2021, PNC bank acquired BBVA, another large banking chain operating mainly in the Southwestern United States. Customers who previously banked with BBVA are now PNC customers. However, with the transition, many legacy BBVA customers may not have received adequate disclosure of PNC’s (or BBVA’s in previous years) overdraft practices.
Additionally, PNC customers without the bank’s Virtual Wallet and Low Cash Mode enabled could be suffering from allegedly unfair overdraft fees. MWA believes PNC bank should be responsible for offering complete transparency about their overdraft practices to all customers – both old and new – and that customers using special PNC products shouldn’t have more protection from overdraft fees than those that don’t.

MWA is pursuing cases on behalf of customers who have been unfairly and illegally charged overdraft fees. You may be qualified to join this arbitration if:

- You have been charged an overdraft fee on a debit card purchase at least once in the past year
How Does an Arbitration Work?
Arbitration is a form of dispute resolution outside the courtroom. An arbitrator decides the result much like a judge, but the proceedings are private. It has, unfortunately, become common practice for banks to include arbitration clauses in their agreement paperwork in order to avoid public class actions that can bring bad press and hold them accountable in court. Agreeing to these clauses forces customers to seek a resolution with the bank out of court. Banks expect that arbitration will discourage customers from seeking further action. We believe this is unacceptable. MWA has decided to represent PNC bank clients as individuals in arbitration to recover overdraft fees. If your case is signed with MWA, our firm will represent you in the arbitration hearings at no charge to you. If you lose, you pay nothing. If you win, our firm collects relevant fees from PNC bank.
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, (MWA) has a long history of success holding banks and credit unions accountable for their unfair or illegal practices, including a $203 million verdict against Wells Fargo itself. The Financial Services attorneys of MWA believe big banks should never be able to just take their customers’ hard-earned money when they are not legally entitled to collect overdraft fees.
