If you had a Bank of America credit card and your debts were discharged in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy you may be eligible for a potential award from the Bank of America Credit Card Class Action Lawsuit! According to the lawsuit, Bank of America failed to update credit card information when the account holder’s debts were sold. This meant that tradelines did not indicate that the debts were included in the bankruptcy and were shown as sold, charged off with a $0 balance. Bank of America denies the claims but have agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid the burden and expense of ongoing litigation. If you’re eligible, submit a claim form to receive your potential award by January 30, 2018!
