Will Not Let You Opt Out of Overdraft Protection

I had a bill pay that I accidently set to the wrong checking account with caused an overdraft. After my balance went negative, the ATM card still allowed me to withdraw and use debits causing fees of $204 to accumulate. This due to their so called overdraft "protection" which charges you $34 PER INCIDENT. The idea being that this "service" ensures you have continued use of your card even if you don't have the money. What good is this so-called "protection" when it puts you further in the hole anyway?

Online customer service told me there was nothing I could do about it but the local branch manager understood and reversed the fees. However, when I inquired about opting out, which will be mandated by law in June, I was told I could not and they wanted to upsell me on a line of credit instead. I am COMPLETELY disgusted by this and I'm taking my money to Chase which allows you to opt out right off the bat.

Also, their online banking is PATHETIC. I can't even believe this is a bank operating in the 21st century. Horrible interface, poor alert system, and the online customer service is extremely rude and unhelpful. I'll be very surprised if this bank lasts another 10 years with its poor customer service.

I recently visited my local branch on a Wensday morning.The tellers where very friendly and want to help me .

I then helped myself to a coffee and filled out my deposit slip.The teller Theresa I believe is the nicest teller I have ever had in my 35 tears of banking always has a smile and always very helpful.To tell the truth I was having a bad Morning till I walked in to People's United Bank on Boston Road in Springfield Mass!!!!

Thank you Again Theresa and the Wonderful Staff
