In January 2009, we wrote about a settlement reached with Bank of America called Closson et.al., v. Bank of America. The settlement resolved a class action lawsuit filed over overdraft fees. According to the lawsuit, Bank of America engaged in practices which caused customers to overdraw their accounts more frequently. The bank settled the lawsuit for $35 million with an estimated payout of $78 per account.

As we explained in the original article, to claim the settlement, eligible customers needed to file online or mail in a claim form.

Nearly three years later I received my check and it was a nice surprise- $98.16. If you filed for the settlement award then look for a check in your mailbox over the next week.

For those of you who have questions about the settlement or haven't received your check, you can visit the settlement site for more information.

    I just received mine also and was wondering if it was legit. I called the Huntington Bank to make sure that it was a real check drawn to a real account and they told me yes. So thank you also for this article. A great Christmas present.
