Details: Super easy settlement to submit your claim for. If you had a debit card from Bank of America or one of the banks listed above, and paid an Insufficient Funds fee or charge, Overdraft fee or charge, Returned Item fee or charge, or other similar fee or charge within five days of using an ATM or your debit card to buy something within the “Purchased From” dates below this settlement is for YOU! If you were charged an Over Limit fee or charge because of a debit charge which occurred sometime during your statement period you’re included in this class action lawsuit settlement as well. It’s a cash settlement of $78 per claimant. We know it’s less than many were hoping for, but it’s free money, so why NOT make your claim? Just hit the Settlement Administrator website, click on “Submit a claim online” on the left, read the terms and conditions and click on continue. Next you have to enter in all of your contact information and include your bank account number which had the fee(s) assessed to it. The form states you can include the address of the account holder instead of the account number, but it’s locked and won’t accept enough characters to enter in most addresses (it wouldn’t fit ours by way of a test.) Click Continue, read through the terms and conditions, enter in the text verification characters and click on SUBMIT! That’s it! How easy was that? Any questions? Just give the settlement administrators a call for help.

TCA Staff Tidbit: This is the first bank fee settlement that many people have been waiting for. Unfortunately it’s a small one. I know paid for then $78 in fees to B of A over the course of 15 + years as a customer, but some money is ALWAYS better then NO moolah. I think it’s great they made it an EASY claim. I submitted my claim already, and hope if you qualify you do to! As we list above, it’s fast, easy and shouldn’t take longer than 2 minutes to submit your claim online. Interestingly, they include the caveat in the settlement agreement that the organizations getting any left over funds CANNOT be ones that encourage the pursuit of litigation against financial institutions. Seems like a “Duh” moment to me, but I guess it needs to be included to cover B of A’s Heine. That would be a big bummer (understatement) to spend $35 million and have a charity that gets a portion of it come back and sue you a few years later. Wouldn’t that be bad karma? Is there bad karma in the lawsuit biz? Hmmm. Things to ponder. Anyway, as we stated, check it out. Make your claim,get $78 back.
