TOLEDO, Ohio (6/22/09)--An Ohio credit union is among five financial institutions in the state being sued over ATM charges. Plaintiff Maryann S. Kuzila filed a class-action suit Tuesday in the U.S. District Court of Toledo against Fremont (Ohio) FCU and four banks. She alleges the credit union and banks cannot charge usage fees on ATMs without fee notices because it violates the Electronic Funds Transfer Act. The act requires that a fee notice must be posted on or at an ATM if fees are charged. Kuzila withdrew cash from an ATM in Fremont, according to court documents. She did not have any accounts with the credit union or banks operating the ATM and was charged a $2 fee. She claims that the ATM did not have a fee notice. Similar suits have been filed in Pittsburgh. Daniela Helkowski filed suit May 19 against Clearview CU, Moon Township, Pa., for charging ATM fees without notices. Helkowski claims she withdrew cash from an ATM at the credit union’s main branch and was charged $2.25. She also filed a suit against a bank in Sewickley, Pa. (News Now June 3).
