What is this lawsuit about?

A class action lawsuit entitled, Wilson, et al. v. Santander Consumer USA Inc., is pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas, No. 4:20-cv-00152-KGB (the “Class Action”). The Complaint in the Class Action claims that Defendant SC violated the Texas Debt Collection Act by improperly charging customers a convenience fee each time they paid their car loan payments by telephone, IVR, or the internet.

You may ask to be excluded from the Settlement. If you do so, you will receive no money and credit repair from the Settlement.  To do so, you must send a letter requesting exclusion postmarked no later than August 29, 2022

OBJECT TO THE SETTLEMENT

You may object to the Settlement if you do not exclude yourself and you do not agree with any aspect of the Settlement.  An objection must be in writing, filed, and postmarked on or before August 29, 2022
