The report is titled How Consumer Financial Class Actions Help and Protect Americans. Here is an excerpt from the press release:

This report illustrates how anytime, anywhere, an unscrupulous bank or lender could steal money from you, your family, or your small business. … If, say, a bank opens a fraudulent bank account in your name, charges you fees and ruins your credit; or, a company illegally freezes money in your bank account, or cuts access to your prepaid cards, so you can’t pay your bills or withdraw money; or, a bank makes illegal credit inquiries without your permission and hurts your credit score so you can't get a loan; or, a bank charges you fraudulent mortgage or loan fees and then illegally try to collect the debt.
