quote [ Chase ?filed lawsuits and obtained judgments against consumers using deceptive affidavits and other documents that were prepared without following required procedures,? the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau concluded in 2015. At times, Chase employees signed affidavits ?without personal knowledge of the signer, a practice commonly referred to as ?robo-signing.?? According to the CFPB?s findings, there were mistakes in about 10% of cases Chase won and the judgments ?contained erroneous amounts that were greater than what the consumers legally owed.? ]

They got slapped on the wrist, and now they're starting up again. Hooray!???
