ATTN: Uber or Lyft Customer:
Have you incurred an overdraft fee on your checking account after taking an Uber or Lyft ride, making a supposedly inexpensive ride share cost $30 or $35 more than it should?
Debit card transactions can be either “one-time” or “recurring.” While banks are allowed to charge overdraft fees on “recurring” transactions, they may not charge overdraft fees on “one-time” transactions without your express consent.
Consumers have complained that many banks are charging overdraft fees on “one-time” transactions like Uber or Lyft rides—even if consumers have not expressly told their banks they want “overdraft protection” for those types of transactions. We believe this is likely unlawful.
If this has happened to you, please complete the form below and one of our team members will be in contact with you.
