Deceptive Practices Lawsuit: American Express

American Express Accused of Deceptive Practices in Travel Insurance Sales

Imagine planning a dream vacation, only to have it ruined by unexpected events such as trip cancellations or medical emergencies. That's where travel insurance comes in, providing peace of mind and financial protection for unforeseen circumstances. However, what if the company selling you that insurance has been deceiving you all along? That's the case against American Express Travel Related Services Company, Inc., as alleged in McQueen v. American Express Travel Related Services Company, Inc.

Case Overview

Filed on January 24, 2024, in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (Case No. 2:24-cv-00862), the class action lawsuit accuses American Express of engaging in deceptive practices related to its travel services. The plaintiff, McQueen, alleges that American Express misrepresented certain aspects of their travel insurance products, such as coverage limits and eligibility requirements, which led consumers to purchase these policies under false pretenses.

Deceptive Practices

The complaint highlights several ways in which American Express allegedly deceived consumers. For instance, the company failed to clearly disclose coverage limits and eligibility requirements for their travel insurance policies. This meant that consumers were misled into believing they were purchasing comprehensive coverage, when in reality, they were not. Additionally, American Express is accused of misrepresenting the scope of their policies, leading consumers to believe they were covered for a broader range of events than they actually were.

Damages and Injunctive Relief

The plaintiff seeks damages, restitution, injunctive relief, and other remedies against American Express. The lawsuit argues that the company's deceptive practices have caused financial harm to consumers, who purchased travel insurance policies under false pretenses. Furthermore, the plaintiff demands that American Express stop their deceptive practices and take steps to rectify the situation.
