iStock Editorial/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Bank of America and the Department of Justice have agreed to some financial terms of a settlement over securities fraud charges that will see the banking institution fork over $17 billion.

The agreement was reportedly finalized during a phone call between Attorney General Eric Holder and Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan last week. A number of details, however, still need to be worked out before the settlement can be reached.

No announcement is expected on a complete settlement agreement this week.
