Recently, a consumer class-action lawsuit was filed against Capital One Bank. The Capital One Class Action Lawsuit alleges that the bank allegedly misled consumers, by promising an interest-free grace period on charges when, according to the plaintiffs, consumers who do not pay off their statement balance in full by the due date lose the grace period on all future purchases. (Dress et al v. Capital One Bank (USA), N.A., Case No. 18-cv-268, E. D. VA.) The Capital One Lawsuit complaint alleges, instead, that “if a Capital One consumer fails to pay his entire balance by the
statement due date, then Capital One takes away the interest-free grace period on all future purchases, causing interest charges to accrue the moment a customer makes a purchase. This is true regardless of whether the consumer pays his upcoming credit card balance in full. Accordingly, contrary to their reasonable expectations, consumers are charged interest on new purchases that are paid in full by the statement date.”
