The Federal Court that presided over the lawsuit, which claimed that Fifth Third Bank improperly assessed overdraft fees for insufficient funds on debit card purchases and ATM withdrawals by "re-sequencing" transactions to maximize the number of overdraft fees, began to notify current and former bank account customers of the proposed $9.5 million class action settlement.

The proposed settlement class includes anyone who held a Fifth Third Bank account from October 21,
2004 through July 1, 2010, and incurred at least one overdraft fee associated with a Fifth Third debit card transaction. A court hearing on the proposed settlement is scheduled to occur March 16, 2010.

The bank has denied the lawsuit's claims. If you think you are eligible to be a member of the proposed settlement class, your claim can be submitted by mail to Fifth Third Overdraft Settlement, P.O. Box 3266, Portland, OR, 97208-3266 or online at
