Bank of America pursues asset recovery from Pittsburgh litigant

By Nicholas Malfitano | Jan 2, 2018


PITTSBURGH – Bank of America is pursuing the recovery of more than $50,000 in outstanding costs and credit balances from a Pittsburgh man counted as one of its clients.

Bank of America of Newark, Del. filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Nov. 22 versus Mark S. Cogley, of Pittsburgh.

Bank of America acts as the successor-in-interest to FIA Card Services (formerly known as MBNA America Bank) and was merged into and under the charter and title of the plaintiff, effective Oct. 1, 2014.

During the relevant time period, Cogley was the holder of a credit card or other consumer finance account since April 21, 2010. Cogley went on to use the account for the purchases of goods, services or cash advances in accordance with the customer agreement, the suit says.

“All credits to which the defendant is entitled have been applied to the account and there remains a balance due in the amount of $50,655.44. Plaintiff has made demand upon the defendant for payment of the balance due, but the defendant has failed and refused, and still refuses, to pay the balance due. As such, the defendant is in default pursuant to the terms of the agreement. The last payment was made on or about April 7, 2016,” the suit states.

For breach of contract, the plaintiff is seeking $50,655.44, plus costs.

The plaintiffs are represented by Frederic I. Weinberg and Joel M. Flink of the Law Offices of Frederic I. Weinberg & Associates, in Conshohocken.
