BB&T / consumers don't stand a chance anymore

We recieved a stimulus check for $1200.00 and deposited it in our banks ATM machine. (BB&T) We were then charged $210.00 in overdraft charges in one day because the bank says they can place a hold on the check and only allow $100.00 to be available. We deposited it on Thursday evening. I was told by a bank customer service representative that the funds would not be available until the following Wednesday because Monday was a holiday. We asked two different representatives on Saturday and Sunday to refund the charges with no luck. I emailed and still got no for and answer. We have been with this bank for over 20 years. We have had many loans from them(all paid in full) and had two mortgage loans through them (also paid in full). This is how they show thanks for loyal customers. This was our stimulus check. The only economy getting stimulated in this country is crooked banks and gas stockholders. Consumers don't stand a chance anymore. How sad.

    i just want to say that i agree with you that is not right .. i think this is one you can fight .. first of all i dont think they can hold government issued checks especially since there is a web site banks and anyone can use to verify funds on a check .. thats ridiculous !!!
