Allegedly, Fraudulent Marketers Are Joining with Banks to Scam the Elderly; Parker Waichman LLP Investigates a Potential Class Action Lawsuit
Date:6/12/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

National law firm Parker Waichman LLP is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of consumers – primarily the elderly – who have allegedly been victimized by fraudulent telemarketers in concert with middle men known as payment processors. Also allegedly involved are banks – from giant national operations to smaller regional players – which are charged with helping to facilitate the theft of billions of dollars each year, according to a June 10, 2013, report in The New York Times.

In these schemes, the banks do not generally interact directly with the marketers that are allegedly defrauding the public, according to the Times article. Rather, the banks establish relationships with intermediaries that handle the marketer’s payments – and that also dole out the banks’ fees.

Marketers, typically telemarketers or Internet companies, concoct various kinds of schemes to get banking information from people they have targeted. In one case, a plaintiff involved in a class-action lawsuit said in the complaint that a telemarketer basically tricked him into revealing his bank account information, then yanked nearly $400 out of his account (Reyes v. Zion First National Bank, et al; U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania; case no. 2:2010-cv-00345).

All in all, between 2007 and 2009, tens of thousands of Americans, many of them over age 65, lodged complaints with state attorneys general, banking regulators and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), requesting refunds for bank charges that they say were unauthorized, the Times reported.
