Are overdraft fees predatory?

Rounding it up

  • Overdraft fees can be a good tool but are predatory when they’re relied upon or if the consumer is not aware that they’re enrolled.

  • The interest rate on overdrafted funds can end up being monumentally high.

  • There are plenty of better options than over-drafting your account, including a credit card or simply cash.
