Bank of America Garnishment Fees May Constitute Breach of Contract

Bank of America Garnishment Fees May Constitute Breach of Contract

Posted By Golomb & Honik || 27-Feb-2014

The consumer attorneys at Golomb & Honik are currently investigating claims from Bank of America account holders in Pennsylvania and other states who may have been victims of breach of contract via Bank of America charging them unauthorized fees associated with garnishment actions.

When Bank of America is served with a garnishment order on a customer's account, the bank charges the customer various fees. Specifically, Bank of America has charged account holders who were the subject of garnishment actions separate attorney's fees in addition to legal processing fees.

The contract that governs personal accounts provides that Bank of America will charge the customer $100 for each garnishment order the bank receives (a "legal processing fee"). In various states, including Pennsylvania, the bank deducts the legal processing fee in addition to charging each customer a separate, additional attorney's fee. Bank of America's actions in this regard constitute a breach of contract.

If you're a Bank of America customer who believes you were a victim of this practice, please call Golomb & Honik at 855-889-5389 for your free case review.
