In June 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against BBVA USA for allegedly misleadingly representing that the bank only charges overdraft fees on transactions if there is not enough money to cover the transaction when, according to the complaint, it charges overdraft fees on transactions that do not actually overdraw the account. Plaintiffs also claim that the bank misleadingly represents that it will not charge more than one fee on a single transaction when, according to the complaint, the bank routinely charges multiple fees on a single transaction. (Hill et al v BBVA USA
, Case No. 20-cv-1016, S.D. Cal.)
