Washington Mutual Refunds Fees To Wildfire Victims

A Washington Mutual insiders tells us that the bank will refund overdraft fees for victims of the California wildfires, if they couldn’t get to an ATM, as well as ATM surcharges if they were forced to use non-WaMu machines. WaMu customer service confirmed the report. Victims can claim their refund by calling or visiting a branch location. A small but noble gesture, certainly better than AT&T | Dish asking customers if they remembered to pick up their receiver on their way out of the house and charging them $300 for not.
