Fraud

Back of Jacket Saying "Team DoorDash"

Tipped workers are among the lowest-paid in the US economy. When consumers pay a tip at a restaurant or to a delivery driver, they trust that that money goes directly to the worker. However, the complaint for this class action alleges that tips entered into the DoorDash, Inc. app do not go to the drivers who bring their deliveries but to DoorDash, in whole or in part.

FIGS Gray Health Care Pants with Turquoise Waist Tie

FIGS, Inc. has claimed that its health care clothing can kill bacteria and infection, the complaint for this class action says. That would be a real advantage to health care workers—but is it true? The complaint claims that it is not.

“A life settlement is a transaction in which an insured person sells his or her life insurance policy to a third party,” explains the complaint for this class action. Life settlements are at issue in this case for “fraud, conspiracy, aiding and abetting, civil theft, and breach of fiduciary duty,” against defendants Conestoga Settlement Services, LLC, Conestoga International, LLC, Conestoga Trust Services, LLC, Michael McDermott, Provident Trust Group, LLC, LLC Bradford and Company, LLC, and Strategix Solutions, Ltd.

Fallout 4 Season Pass

Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Media, Inc. make the game Fallout 4 and its downloadable content (DLC). The complaint for this class action alleges that the companies sold a season pass for the game that they advertised as giving purchasers all the DLC for the game. However, the complaint says, the companies provided additional DLC that was not available with the season pass. 

Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 in Flight

The relationship between Southwest Airlines Co. and the Boeing Company was special, according to the complaint for this class action. And when Boeing brought out the flawed 737 MAX 8, the complaint alleges, Southwest helped cover up the plane’s fatal deficiencies. 

Claire's Contouring Product, One of The Types Found to Contain Asbestos

Claire’s stores are familiar to many as brightly-colored, product-stuffed mall stores designed to appeal to young women, teens, tweens, and even kids. The complaint for this class action outlines a very adult problem, however, alleging that some of Claire’s cosmetics have been found to contain asbestos. 

This class action is another case where a company has classified a worker as an independent contractor rather than an employee. However, in this case plaintiffs Jason Sheldon and Steven Hunsberger had to invest a significant amount of money. The plaintiffs were led to believe that they were starting their own businesses, but the complaint alleges that State Farm controlled nearly everything and provided a great deal of misinformation.

Bank of America Logo and Name

This class action concerns a “decade-long” Ponzi scheme that the complaint says was run out of more than a hundred accounts at Bank of America, NA and roughly twenty accounts at Citizens Bank, NA. The complaint names the banks, along with a group of individuals, as being responsible for investor losses, as the banks allegedly facilitated the scheme rather than discovering and stopping it.

Package of Pepperidge Farm Texas Toast

The package for Pepperidge Farm’s Texas Toast shows two thick slices of toasted bread with a yellow spread and parsley flakes, a fresh garlic clove and parsley leaf, pats of butter, and the words, “Made with real Garlic[,] Butter & Parsley.” It looks mouth-wateringly delicious—assuming, of course, that the yellow spread is butter. Unfortunately, the complaint for this class action alleges that most of it is palm and soybean oils, with added coloring, while butter makes up less than two percent of the product.

Artex Logo

A group of companies and individuals, the complaint for this class action alleges, duped people into taking part in an illegal tax-shelter scheme it calls the Captive Insurance Strategies. The complaint claims that the group violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and committed fraud, among other things.
