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
