BNY-Mellon, Legg Mason, Alliance Bernstein and Invesco Proprietary 401(K)Performance and fee Investigation:

BNY-Mellon, Legg Mason, Alliance Bernstein and Invesco PROPRIETARY 401(k)PERFORMANCE AND FEE INVESTIGATION

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is investigating claims regarding 401(k) accounts of employees of BNY-Mellon, Legg Mason, Alliance Bernstein and Invesco.  Preliminary investigation has uncovered that each of BNY-Mellon, Legg Mason, Alliance Bernstein and Invesco have inserted within each of their respective employee 401(k) plans a menu of investment options which includes large amounts of their own proprietary funds, thus allowing each of them to earn fees from their employees’ retirement savings.

Many of the employer proprietary funds offered in each of the respective 401(k) plans have underperformed peer benchmarks and impose higher than average fees, thus costing the holders of the 401(k) accounts potentially thousands of dollars in lost retirement savings per account.  These employers’ inclusion of their own proprietary funds in their employees 401(k) accounts may constitute a violation of the regulations which forbid such arrangements under the “prohibited transactions” provisions of The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”).

Cashless Tolls Excessive Fines — EZ Pass and Tolls-By-Mail Investigation:

Cashless Tolls  Excessive Fines —  EZ Pass and Tolls-By-Mail

Squitieri & Fearon, LLP is pursuing claims for drivers who have been charged excessive fees for using cashless tolls, such as EZ Pass and Tolls-By-Mail.  Recently, many bridges and tunnels have eliminated toll booths and have switched to cashless toll collecting, meaning that tolls are collected from drivers using automated systems. Cameras and sensors mounted onto new overhead frames collect the tolls either using EZ Pass or Tolls-By-Mail.  But the MTA, Port Authority, Thruway Authority and other entities that operate those systems have used the cashless toll system to line their own pockets at the expense of drivers, primarily by collecting improper fees and penalties in addition to collecting the tolls.  Often the fees and penalties are multiples of the actual toll for the bridge, meaning that many drivers are being repeatedly charged more than $100 to cross a bridge or tunnel. Compounding the problem, the extra charges are  frequently impose without giving prior notice to the drivers, leading to more and more charges.  As a result, drivers often run up hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines and penalties and then they often face  aggressive collection efforts, including threats of adverse credit reports, suspension of their driver’s license, revocation of their vehicle registration, and seizure of their tax refunds if they do not immediately pay the fees.

If you or someone you know has been charged these excessive fees as a result of using EZ Pass, Tolls-By-Mail or other cashless tolling systems, please complete the following form, and someone from the firm will contact you.
