Settlement with JPMorgan Chase Overview
The lawsuits concern whether Chase posted debit card transactions in order from highest to lowest buck amount to maximize the number of overdraft fees assessed to its customers. Chase maintains there was nothing wrong about its approval of transactions or the posting process used. The Court has not determined which side is right. Instead, both sides have agreed to a Settlement.
Whether you received notice of the Settlement by a postcard or not, you are a member of the Settlement Class if you had a Chase consumer deposit account that you could access with a Chase debit card anytime inbetween January 1, 2003 and March 29, 2010 and were charged one or more overdraft fees as a result of Chase’s practice of posting debit card transactions from highest to lowest buck amount.
Settlement Fund payments also may be available to holders of certain consumer deposit accounts with Bank One, Bank of New York (“BoNY”) or Washington Mutual Bank (“WaMu”) as lengthy as overdraft fees charged to those accounts happened after they became Chase-owned accounts.
