A Class Action Lawsuit Settlement Against Charter One Bank Has Been Reached
Were you a customer of Charter One Bank between the years 2002 through 2010? Were you charged over-drafts fees that were unfair? Was an account re-opened after you closed it? Did you received notice of the Settlement in a postcard addressed to you? This means that you are a Settlement Class Member. But even if you did not receive a postcard, you may still be a Settlement Class Member. You may be able to recover from the settlement.
The postcard reads inpart:
You are a member of the Settlement Class if you:
· Had a Citizens consumer deposit account that you could access with a Citizens debit card anytime between January 1, 2002, and August 13, 2010, and/or had a Charter One consumer deposit account that you could access with a Charter One debit card any time between July 25, 2005 and August 13, 2010; and/or
· Had a consumer deposit account with an Acquired Bank that you could access with a debit card between January 1, 2002 and August 27, 2007; and
· Were charged one or more overdraft fees as a result of posting Debit Card Transactions from highest to lowest dollar amount.
To be included in the Settlement Class, you must have had two or more overdraft fees caused by debits posted to your account on a single day during the time period listed above.
