According to the lawsuit, disclosures for the credit card clearly stated in large type: "Annual Fee: NONE."Graham claims that had he known there would by an annual fee, he would not have applied for the Capital One Best Buy credit card. Best Buy is not named as a defendant.

The lawsuit seeks to represent US residents who, between May 8, 2011 and the present, submitted a Best Buy Reward Zone Credit Card Application containing a promise of "no annual fee"but who were subsequently mailed a Capital One credit card that carries an annual fee.

The lawsuit seeks statutory and actual damages, restitution, injunctive relief and more for nine claims, including violations of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), fraud, and unfair business practices.

In November of 2013 I purchased a MACair from Best Buy at Columbus Circle in NYC for a total of $1500 including software (and unneccessary security software).
The card was interest free for the first year. I had paid off half of it when I had employment challenges and was late on two payments and additional charges were added that equaled half of each month's minimum payment.
2 years of payments to them later, and after I had been told they agreed to a debt consolidation companies proposal of no added interest, my balance is over $1200.

Can you help me?!

Thank you.
