Hawaii Attorney General David Louie filed suit against seven credit card companies for alleged improper charges. The suit alleges that Hawaiians were charged for products they didn’t order – such as payment protection plans – or products that didn’t match the claims that were made. According to Attorney General Louie’s press release, the defendants in the suit are Bank of America, Barclays, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Discover, HSBC, and their subsidiaries.
The lawsuit is asking for an injunction to halt the practices, as well as restitution and penalties that could amount to $10,000 per violation. Hawaiians who believe they have been victims of the alleged fraud should contact Rick Fried at 808-524-1433.
