LOS ANGELES – A consumer has filed a class-action lawsuit against a consumer credit report company alleging it made automatic withdrawls from her bank account without permission.
Melissa Meyer filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on July 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Experian Information Solutions Inc. alleging violation of the Electronic Funds Transfer Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2015, she suffered monetary damages as the result of her bank account being automatically debited without prior notice by the defendant. The plaintiff holds Experian Information Solutions Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly automatically debited from plaintiff's bank account without authorization from plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages of $1,000 per class member, actual damages, all legal fees and interest and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman PC in Beverly Hills.
