If you had a credit card issued by Department Stores National Bank and were provided with one or more on-line or mailed periodic statements for that credit card account between October 18, 2011 and December 31, 2011, this Notice describes your rights and potential benefits from a class action settlement.

A federal court authorized this Notice.  This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

  • This Notice summarizes a proposed class-action settlement of claims brought against Department Stores National Bank (“DSNB”).

 

  • The proposed settlement (the “Settlement”) resolves claims that DSNB violated the federal Truth in Lending Act (“TILA”) by not making certain billing rights disclosures required by TILA and its implementing Regulation Z in periodic billing statements provided to DSNB cardholders between October 18, 2011 and December 31, 2011.

 

  • You are part of the Settlement and are eligible to submit a Claim for a cash payment if you were the holder of a credit card issued by DSNB and were provided with one or more on-line or mailed periodic billing statements between October 18, 2011 and December 31, 2011.

 

  • Your rights and options, and the deadlines to exercise them, are explained in this Notice.  Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don’t act.  Read this Notice carefully.
