Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC ("KSF"), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into TCF Financial Corporation (NYSE: TCB).

On January 19, 2017, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ("CFPB") filed a lawsuit against TCF Financial Corporation's principal subsidiary, TCF National Bank ("TCF"), alleging that TCF illegally "devised and then executed a strategy to persuade its customers to opt in" to costly overdraft protections that generated millions of dollars in revenue. The CFPB alleges that TCF designed its application process to obscure the fees and make overdraft seem mandatory for new customers to open an account. The CFPB also asserted that TCF adopted a loose definition of consent for existing customers in order to opt them into the service and pushed back on any customer who questioned the process.

KSF's investigation is focusing on whether TCF Financial Corporation's officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to TCF Financial Corporation's shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
