Claim Your Share ($78) Of The Bank Of America Overdraft Settlement

Bank of America has settled a class action lawsuit over its dirty overdraft tricks—things like approving transactions that generate overdraft fees, for example, or clearing transactions in high-to-low order to increase the number of overdrafts. If you’re a former customer of BoA, Fleet, LaSalle Bank or United Trust Company, you can claim your part of the settlement fund.

Unfortunately, your part will only be $78, although you can still file an objection or ask to speak to the court about the fairness of the settlement. Go here for all the info; claims, requests, and objections must be postmarked by 1 May 2009. [via]
