KC Law Firm Files Class Action Against UMB, Joplin Independent
KANSAS CITY, MO – David Johnson, a Missouri resident who was assessed hundreds of dollars of overdraft fees, recently filed a lawsuit against UMB Bank, N.A. (his bank since 1998) and UMB Financial Corporation (UMB). The class action lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff, and other UMB customers in Missouri, were charged overdraft fees because of UMB’s unfair and deceptive overdraft fee practices. The lawsuit alleges that these practices violate Missouri’s consumer protection law and UMB’s contracts with its customers.
