Baron and Budd is Investigating Possible Equity Accelerator Scam

Baron and Budd is a national plaintiffs’ law firm with a more than 30-year history of Protecting What’s Right for individuals, entities and businesses. With 60 attorneys and more than 200 staff, Baron and Budd has the resources to take on complex litigation. Baron and Budd was originally founded in Dallas, but has since expanded to four additional offices throughout the country in Austin, Texas; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Los Angeles, California and Miami, Florida.

Though the firm was originally founded to fight for compensation for people injured by exposure to asbestos, Baron and Budd has expanded its practice to include diverse and meaningful consumer and environmental cases. Baron and Budd prides itself on staying at the forefront of consumer protection litigation matters on a national scale.

The firm is involved in a number of potential fraud cases that involve consumers who may have been scammed by predatory business practices. Baron and Budd serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in the national bank overdraft fee litigation and in the national litigation concerning online companies, such as Proflowers, that have scammed consumers with fraudulent credit card charges and deceptive marketing tactics.

Currently, Baron and Budd is investigating a number of financial scams, primarily perpetuated by banks, mortgage lenders and other financial institutions. One of the firm’s most recent investigations involves the popular mortgage payment program known as the Equity Accelerator Program. This program is offered by numerous banks and mortgage lenders, including JP Morgan Chase, Citibank and Wells Fargo. Though it is promoted as a program to help save consumers substancial money on a home mortgage, many banks are taking advantage of people enrolled in the program by not applying funds to the mortgage payment on the same day the funds are withdrawn from the customer’s account. Essentially, a consumer is loaning money to the bank – without their knowledge and without the promoted savings on th interest, ultimately not saving money on their home mortgage.

If you are a mortgage holder in the state of California and are enrolled in a mortgage equity accelerator program through JP Morgan Chase or another mortgage lender, you may be eligible to join a class action lawsuit. To learn more, contact Baron and Budd at 1.866.656.2425 or email

There is no upfront cost to consumers for the firm’s investigation of potential fraud and all calls are confidental.
