Fraud

Box of M&M's Vanilla Ice Cream Bars

The rules for the labeling of vanilla are different from those of most other flavors. The complaint for this class action alleges that Mars, Incorporated does not properly label its “vanilla” M&M’s bars.

Great Northern Popcorn Machine

It takes an hour or more to assemble the $300, full-size popcorn machine marketed by Great Northern Popcorn, says the complaint for this class action. Once customers have done so, it alleges, they are left with a defective machine that is too large to return. The complaint claims that Amazon.com, LLC, which sells the machines, is responsible.

It's Just Lunch Logo

It’s Just Lunch International and its related companies are choosing to settle a class action alleging that It’s Just Lunch (ILJ) fraudulently induced customers into signing a membership contract. The complaint also alleged that violated New York state laws by charging more than $1,000 for a year’s worth of services.

Box of FatBoy Ince Cream Sandwiches

This is one more in a line of class actions challenging the designation of certain ice creams as “vanilla.” Casper’s Ice Cream, Inc. claims that its FatBoy brand ice cream sandwiches contain vanilla ice cream, but this complaint claims that this is improper based on the labeling rules for ice cream.

Universal Studios Globe and Waterway

NBCUniversal Media, LLC has three parks, Universal Studios, Universal’s Island of Adventure, and Universal’s Volcano Bay. This class action alleges that Universal made a false offer of unlimited drinks from certain machines at the parks with the purchase of its Coca-Cola Freestyle Souvenir Cup. 

GreenDot Debit Card

Are debit cards purchased at big box stores safe? This class action alleges that Walmart, Inc., Green Dot Corporation, and Green Dot Bank (which does business as Bonneville Bank) are responsible for cards issued by GreenDot and sold by Walmart that had their preloaded cash value stolen before the cards could be used. 

Carton of 365 Organics Almondmilk

Many US consumers are choosing soymilk or almondmilk over cow’s milk these days. A recent group of class actions has taken issue with the designation of some of these milks as “vanilla almondmilk” or “vanilla soymilk.” The complaint for this class action takes on Whole Foods Market Group, Inc., alleging that its 365 Organic brand almondmilk incorrectly designates two of its varieties as being “vanilla.”  

2019 Ford Ranger

Ford has been sued in several class actions with allegations of false fuel economy numbers, first relating to its Ranger, and then relating to its F-150. This class action widens the field by not limiting the claims to any particular model of vehicle. The complaint only specifies vehicles of model years 2017 to 2019 “that were marketed and sold with overstated fuel economy…”

This class action alleges that H&R Block, Inc., HRB Tax Group, Inc., HRB Digital, LLC, and Free File, Inc. are not making their required free tax preparation services available enough to consumers. The complaint alleges that the Block companies hide the free tax preparation services and instead direct people to the paid sections of their websites.

Customer Extending Credit Card to Payment Processing Device

Small business owners generally used payment processing companies to handle their customers’ credit or debit card payments. The complaint for this class action alleges that one such company, Northern Leasing Systems, Inc., “swindles” small business owners by hiding their services’ true costs and locking them in to contracts that they cannot cancel. The complaint brings suit under the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA).
