Bank of America Uber Ride Overdraft Settlement Notes

  • Pantelyat, et al. v. Bank of America, N.A.
  • Case No. 1:16-cv-08964-AJN
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York

Plaintiffs Nicoletta Pantelyat, Michael Edwards, and Isabelle Scherer collectively brought this class action lawsuit against Bank of America alleging the bank unfairly imposed overdraft fees for “non-recurring” debit card transactions made with Uber.

In Pantelyat’s case, she claims that on March 4, 2016 with a balance of $3.44 in her Bank of America Core Checking account, she used her BofA debit card to purchase a ride with Uber across town for $10. Later that same day, with a balance of -$6.56 in her account, she used her BofA debit card to purchase a second ride with Uber across town for $7.67. Pantelyat claims that her Uber transactions on March 4, 2016 constituted “non-recurring debit card transaction” because Uber purchases are made on a one-time, day-to-day, and were not set up by Pantelyat to occur automatically at a set interval. Since these Uber transactions on non-recurring, they cannot incur an overdraft fee under Bank of America’s accountholder terms.

Still, Bank of America treated Pantelyat’s Uber transactions as recurring and charged her two separate $35.00 overdraft fees.

Bank of America disagrees with the claims but entered into the settlement to avoid further litigation. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Bank of America Uber Ride Overdraft class action settlement website.

Class members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the settlement must do so by March 13, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement do not need to do anything.

Bank of America Unauthorized Credit Report FCRA Settlement Notes

  • Pastor, et al. v. Bank of America, NA
  • Case No. 3:15-cv-03831-VC
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California

Plaintiff Scott Pastor brought this class action lawsuit alleging Bank of America unlawfully conducted credit inquiries on former customers in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

The FCRA is a consumer protection statute which regulates the activities of credit reporting agencies and users of credit reports, and which provides certain rights to consumers affected by use of the collected information about them.

Pastor filed for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in March 2011 and Bank of America was included as a creditor. Pastor’s bankruptcy discharge occurred on January 5, 2015. However, Pastor claims that on March 31, 2015, Bank of America made an account inquiry accessing his Equifax credit report indicating a permissible purpose of “AR” or “Account Review”, but Pastor had no relationship with Bank of America since his bankruptcy discharge.

“Since any alleged debt owed to [Bank of America] was discharged in bankruptcy, an account review by [Bank of America] was not a permissible purpose to access Pastor’s consumer report information,” the Bank of America FCRA class action lawsuit states. Pastor claims his credit score was lowered as a result of Bank of America’s actions.

Bank of America denies any liability or wrongdoing, but in order to avoid litigation costs and risk, has agreed to settle the FCRA class action lawsuit.

In December 2017, Bank of America discovered that not all Settlement Class members received notice of this settlement. According to Bank of America, a retrieval error only  the primary borrower on the account was included in the mailed list of Settlement Class Members. As a result, additional or secondary borrowers’ names did not receive direct notice and Bank of American has identified approximately 61,410 such additional or secondary borrowers. Therefore, the initial claim filing, exclusion, and objection deadlines have been extended to June 19, 2018.

Complete details about the case and settlement can be found on the Bank of America Unauthorized Credit Report FCRA Settlement website.

Bank of America Credit Card Settlement Notes

  • Michael Echevarria, et al. v. Bank of America Corporation, et al.
  • Case No. 14-08216
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York

Plaintiff Michael Echevarria initiated this class action lawsuit against Bank of America, alleging the bank failed to update credit reporting information for credit card accounts it sold to third parties where the accountholder’s debt was discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. According to Echevarria, these reporting practices negatively impacted Class member’s credit scores.

Additionally, the Bank of America credit card class action lawsuit claims that some consumers were even pressured by Bank of America into paying off these already discharged credit card debts out of fear of their ability to get credit or employment.

Bank of America denies any wrongdoing and denies that they attempted to collect discharged debts but agreed to settle the allegations to avoid the uncertainty of further litigation.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves of object to the terms of the Bank of America credit card settlement must do so by Jan. 30 2018. Class members who wish to submit a claim for payment must do so by Jan. 30, 2018.
