Wells Fargo saw the biggest jump, at 16 percent from the same period a year earlier, the Post reported. Overall, the amount collected by the more than 600 banks included in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation dataclimbed 6 percent to $2.7 billion.
The growing number of overdraft fees collected comes as the government's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau researches how banks charge them. Earlier this year, the CFPB asked the largest banks to offer accounts that do not charge overdraft fees.
"Over the years, overdraft programs have become a significant source of industry revenues, and a significant reason why many consumers incur negative balances," CFPB Director Richard Cordray said at a hearing in February.
