Markovits, Stock & DeMarco, LLC, a plaintiffs’ law firm experienced in handling consumer class actions, is investigating claims related to U.S. Bank’s opening of fake accounts without its banking customers’ knowledge.
On July 28, 2022, it was reported that U.S. Bank opened fake bank accounts on behalf of certain of its banking customers without their knowledge. Accordingly to the Washington Post, “For more than a decade, US Bank pressured its employees to open fake accounts in their customers’ names in order to meet unrealistic sales goals, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said Thursday, in a case that is deeply similar to the sales practices scandal uncovered at Wells Fargo last decade.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/govt-us-bank-workers-opened-fake-accounts-for-sales-goals/2022/07/28/a84c16c2-0e85-11ed-88e8-c58dc3dbaee2_story.html
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau fined U.S. Bank approximately $37.5 million for opening the fake accounts.
