2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against United Federal Credit Union for allegedly promising that customers in its overdraft program would only be charged overdraft fees if there is not enough money in their accounts to cover transactions when, according to plaintiffs, the credit union assessed these fees using an artificial internal calculation based on anticipated future transactions instead of the actual balance resulting in customers being charged overdraft fees when accounts have enough money to cover transactions. (Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in 2016.) (Gunter et al v. United Federal Credit Union, Case No. 15-cv-483, D. NV.)
