Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details:The Bank of America credit protection settlement will resolve numerous class action lawsuits filed across the country in 2010 that accused Bank of America Corp. and FIA Card Services, N.A. of using deceptive marketing tactics to sign up and charge credit card customers for a number of useless credit-protection services. The cases were consolidated into a single class action lawsuit, titled In Re: Bank of America Credit Protection Marketing & Sales Practices Litigation, which specifically alleges that the defendants enrolled customers in credit protection services through deceptive marketing, charged them for services without authorization, and improperly denied them benefits and/or gave them nothing meaningful in return for the monthly fees they were charged.
