Carey Danis & Lowe is currently investigating claims that Barclays Bank is engaging in unfair and deceptive trade practices in connection with the sale and administration of their Account Protector program, which is a debt suspension / debt cancellation plan offered to its card members for a fee.
In particular, CD&L is investigating claims that Barclays Bank enrolls card members into their payment protection plan without first determining whether the consumer is qualified to ever receive benefits under the program. The result is that card members are paying fees even though they can never receive benefits.
In addition, the lawyers at CD&L are investigating whether Barclays Bank is enrolling card members into the Account Protector program without their consent or authorization and subsequently charging them a recurring monthly fee.
