Customer Demands Repayment from Reykjavík Bank

Reykjavík Savings Bank (SPRON) received a letter from law firm Opus yesterday demanding a repayment of ISK 33,442 (USD 539.74, EUR 381.41) to one of its clients, a SPRON customer, whom SPRON had charged for excess transactions on his or her debit card.

SPRON charged its customer ISK 750 (USD 12.10, EUR 8.55) for every excess transaction, a so-called FIT-tariff, which Oddgeir Einarsson, district attorney and one of Opus’ three owners, claims is illegal since the customer never agreed to paying it, Fréttabladid reports.

SPRON has been given ten days to repay the money. Fréttabladid was unable to contact Ásdís Bragadóttir, director of SPRON’s collection agency, yesterday.
