NSF Fee

(redirected from Non-Sufficient Funds Fee)

NSF Fee

A fee one must pay in the event that one bounces a check. For example, if Joe writes a check to Bob for $500, but there is only $400 in Joe's checking account, Joe may have to pay an NSF fee to his bank to discourage him from writing bad checks.
