Reza Barani v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., Case No.: 3:12-CV-02999-GPC-KSC

If you received a Text Message from Wells Fargo related to its “send/receive money product” prior to June 20, 2013, and you were not a customer of Wells Fargo, your rights could be affected by a class action settlement.

A settlement has been proposed in the lawsuit named above, which is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California.

Notice of the Settlement was previously mailed to 76,189 Class Members in May of 2014. However, after those notices were mailed, Defendant discovered that there were an additional 6,685 Class Members who were not mailed the postcard notice but who are part of the Class. The 6,685 Class Members are part of the Class and have been sent a postcard notice informing them about the Settlement and their rights. If you are one of the 6,685 Newly-identified Settlement Class Members who were recently mailed a postcard notice, then you may use your Claim ID number found on the postcard you received to submit a claim through this website. If you did not receive a postcard, you may contact the Claims Administrator to see if you are entitled to submit a claim for monetary payment.

Your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act. Read this notice carefully.
