Details: Discover Financial Services has reached a $10.5 million class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it duped its customers into signing up for the fee-based products: Discover Payment Protection (formerly known as Discover AccountGuard), Identity Theft Protection (formerly known as Profile Protect), Wallet Protection (formerly known as The Register), and Credit Score Tracker. As a result, consumers who were enrolled in one of these products between 2004 and 2011 may be eligible to receive up to $30 from the Discover product class action settlement.

The proposed Discover settlement will resolve eight class action lawsuits filed across the country that were consolidated in February 2011 into In Re: Discover Payment Protection Plan Marketing and Sales Practice Litigation. The allegations in the Discover Payment Protection class action lawsuit include, among other things, that:

(1) Consumers were enrolled in Products without their consent;
(2) Discover and its sales agents misrepresented and omitted material facts regarding the cost of the Products;
(3) Discover and its sales agents misled consumers by hiding the true nature of telemarketing calls and misrepresenting that consumers would receive promotional materials prior to enrollment;
(4) Discover misrepresented the date of enrollment for Products;
(5) Consumers enrolled in Discover Payment Protection improperly were charged an amount equal to .89/100 multiplied by their account balance each month rather than .89 cents for each full $100 of their account balance;
(6) Certain consumers were enrolled in Discover Payment Protection despite being ineligible for benefits;
(7) The fees for Products are unconscionably high; and
(8) Consumers improperly were denied Discover Payment Protection benefits.

 

More details about these allegations can be found on www.WalkerSettlement.com.

 

Discover denies any wrongdoing but has proposed a $10.5 million class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the litigation.

The proposed Discover Payment Protection class action settlement includes all persons in the United States who were enrolled in or billed for Discover Payment Protection, AccountGuard, Identity Theft Protection, Profile Protect, Wallet Protection, The Register and/or Credit Score Tracker between January 21, 2004 and November 9, 2011 (the Class Period).

    Hi, My mother died January 2011. She was a long time Discover card holder. I am the executrix with the power of attorney for all of her accounts.I never received any notice of this class action suit and looking through my mother’s folder she had been signed up for the Wallet protection, member identity theft protection, etc. My mother was quite elderly. Is there any recourse regarding submitting a claim on behalf of her estate?
    Thank you.

    Discover Card illegally withheld my share of the refund. They claim I still owe them money that was totally discharged in my bankruptcy. My refund was a measley $26. But you add all the small checks due to people who filed bankruptcy and Discover is raking in the big bucks. The problems is this: Once a debtor files bankruptcy, especially chapter 7, the creditor has no rights to go after the old debt. I have complained and Discover just repeated its position that I owe them thousands. Clearly, Discover doesn’t understand they are in violation of the Bankruptcy Code. Their lawyers should be ashamed of themselves for advising Discover it can prevail in this action.
