The term NSF stands for non-sufficient funds and refers to the status of a cheque account that contains insufficient funds to cover a transaction. When attempting to withdraw more than what your available balance holds you may receive an NSF notice from your bank on a transaction. An NSF fee will be deducted from your available balance each time the bank rejects a transaction and may cause your account to be overdrawn. In the event of an overdraft, the bank may pay for the transaction, although there will be an NSF fee.

May Shamis and Gentile, P.A. approach the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to protect the account holder?
If you are a victim of being charged more than one NSF return item fee for a single transaction, you have the right to file a lawsuit or join a class-action lawsuit. Shamis and Gentile, P.A. is investigating banks who are charging their clients overdraft and NSF fees when recurring payment causes your account to go into overdraft. The overdraft protection law protects customers from banks that enroll customers with overdraft coverage without consent. The Federal Reserve declared in 2010 that upon an attempt of payment, if the account holds insufficient funds, the banks are expected to reject the transaction. However, if a bank offers the service, a customer may choose to change the request and opt-in to overdraft coverage. Keep in mind the bank will charge overdraft fees.
