The Bank of the West Returned Item Fee was previously charged when a cheque, recurring debit card payment, or automatic payment was presented to a customer’s account with insufficient funds available. The Bank’s extended overdraft fee was applied when a customer’s account remained overdrawn by $15 or more for five days. Customers will no longer have to pay NSF fees or extended overdraft fees on their accounts.
