ATM Cash Withdrawal Surcharge Settlement

Settlement Structure: Claims Made

Active: Open

Case Summary:

This is a $67 million partial settlement by defendants JPMorgan Chase & Co., Wells Fargo & Co., Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of America, NA, and Bank of America Corporation. These companies have agreed to settlements in a larger class action alleging that a number of banks and other entities violated federal antitrust laws by imposing restraints that raised ATM surcharges. The complaint alleged that when consumers used bank cards for a cash withdrawal at an ATM owned by an entity other than their card issuer, they were assessed an inflated surcharge.

The case is ongoing against the defendants who have not settled, including Visa, Inc., Visa USA, Inc., Visa International Service Association Plus System, Inc., Mastercard, Inc., Mastercard International, Inc. (which does business as Mastercard Worldwide), and NB Holdings Corporation.
