CAMDEN, N.J. - Four people filed a class action lawsuit against New Jersey-based TD Bank, N.A., alleging fraud and breach of contract on Friday.
Frederick Klein, of Marlton, N.J.; Ronald Ryan, of Boca Raton, Fla.; Geoffrey Grant, of Wilmington, N.C.; and Tashina Drakeford, of Bronx, N.Y., alleged that the bank improperly assessed and collected overdraft fees between Aug. 15, 2010 and the present.

TD Bank operates branches in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
The plaintiffs seek to be appointed representatives of the class and to be awarded compensatory damages in an as yet unspecified amount.

Kim, of McCuneWright LLP, in Redlands, Calif.; and Taras Kick and Thomas A. Segal, of The Kick Law Firm, APC, in Santa Monica, Calif..
