Under Investigation: -OVERDRAFT FEES- Eastern Bank, Middlesex Savings, Rockland Trust, Salem Five
ANNOUNCEMENT: You may have heard of (or been affected by) overdraft fees at Citizens Bank or Bank of America, and the class action lawsuits and settlements related to those overdraft fees.
There are four Massachusetts state-chartered banks which may have engaged in similar unfair practices related to overdraft fees. They are: (1) Middlesex Savings Bank; (2) Rockland Trust; (3) Salem Five; (4) Eastern Bank. Whenever bank transactions are re-ordered from highest to lowest to put customers into a negative balance – thereby causing a domino effect of overdraft fees, banking customers have been injured. This is especially true if you used a debit card for multiple purchases over a period of several days without realizing you had a negative balance.
If you have been a customer of any of the banks listed below, and you have paid overdraft fees, you are encouraged to contact us at (617)329-1295.
Bank Watch List:
In Massachusetts, the law regarding security deposits is very pro-tenant.
Has any of the following happened to you?
- Landlord did not return the security deposit within 30 days after termination of the tenancy
- Landlord did not deposit the security deposit in an escrow account.
- Landlord made up false damage
- Landlord charged you for cleaning costs and took that from the security deposit
If your landlord did not follow the law, you could be entitled to 3 times the amount of the security deposit.
