Consumer Fraud Class Actions
Consumer fraud class actions are cases where a group of consumers have been harmed in a similar way by large corporate defendants who have engaged in fraud in manufacturing, marketing, or selling their product or service. While the individual damages to each client may be small, the importance of holding large corporations accountable for unfair, deceptive, and illegal business practices is extremely important. Cumulative losses by a group of consumers can often reach tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. The $203 million verdict against Wells Fargo for illegal overdraft fees on behalf of the more than one million Wells Fargo California customers is an example of McCuneWright’s experience and success in Consumer Fraud Class Action cases.
