Dear Customer,Are they trying to settle the case with you? It is possible that after 2 years they finally were able to recognize their error and now they are trying to correct it through a settlement by having you sign the new document.I can see why you would be skeptical of this, and it is important to question it. But if they are making a settlement offer to you, it is worthwhile to at least see if there is a potential settlement on the table, and what the terms are. (This may also be a good time to try mediation with the bank to try to resolve the dispute, - contact your local bar association and request referrals to mediators, a third party neutral can often help you reach a mutually agreeable resolution. Use the bar association's referrals to contact a mediator or two, the mediator will then contact the other party to set up a mediation session, and you can go from there.)Make sure to document your communications, use "Confirmation letters:" Keep written records of all communications - so if you speak to someone by phone, promptly send a follow up "confirmation letter" summarizing your conversation, who you spoke to, when, and any agreements you reached. Keep copies of your outgoing correspondence, as well as anything that you receive.
