IF YOU RECEIVED A CALL OR TEXT FROM WELLS FARGO ON YOUR CELLULAR TELEPHONE IN CONNECTION WITH AN OVERDRAFT OF A DEPOSIT ACCOUNT BY MEANS OF AN AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE DIALING SYSTEM AND/OR AN ARTIFICIAL OR PRERECORDED VOICE, YOU COULD RECEIVE A PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT.
Plaintiff brought a lawsuit alleging that Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. (“Wells Fargo”) violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq. by using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice to place calls or send texts to cell phones (“Automatic Calls”) in connection with overdrafts of deposit accounts, and that these Automatic Calls were made without the prior express consent of Class Members. Wells Fargo denies the allegations.
A settlement has been reached in this case and affects individuals who received an Automatic Call regarding a Wells Fargo deposit account between April 21, 2011 and December 19, 2015.
The Settlement, if approved, would provide $30,446,022.75 to pay valid and timely claims of those persons who received any of the above-described Automatic Calls from Wells Fargo, as well as to pay Plaintiff’s attorneys’ fees, a service award to the class representative, and administrative costs of the settlement; avoid the further cost and risk associated with continuing the lawsuit; and release Wells Fargo from further liability.
Any remaining monies from uncashed settlement checks may be redistributed in a second distribution to Class Members who submitted a valid and timely claim. However, if a second distribution would result in less than $1 per qualifying claimant, the remaining monies will instead be donated to the Samuelson Law Clinic.
