Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: NYSE:COF) is currently facing a lawsuit that accuses the company of misleading savers about the interest rates on their accounts. The plaintiffs in the case argue that rather than increasing rates on its existing 360 Savings account, Capital One introduced a new high-yield account called the 360 Performance Savings, leading to significant losses for account holders since September 2019.

The losses were particularly felt following the Federal Reserve's swift interest rate hikes in March 2022. The lawsuit, filed in a Virginia federal court, is seeking monetary compensation and demands an end to such practices by Capital One, which presently maintains a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

In parallel news, Goldman Sachs has recently faced penalties from the Securities and Exchange Commission due to inadequate blue sheet submissions. Meanwhile, a subsidiary of Washington Trust Bancorp, Inc. has settled with the U.S. Department of Justice over alleged violations of fair lending laws in Rhode Island. As part of this settlement, the subsidiary has committed to providing mortgage loan subsidies and investing in community outreach and marketing efforts.
