The Truth in Savings Act ("TISA"), 12 U.S.C. Sections 4301-13, imposes strict liability on depository institutions that violate its disclosure requirements, and to recover statutory damages under Section 4310, a plaintiff need not show that he relied to his detriment on an advertised annual percentage yield (APY), that he was misled by the advertised APY, or that he was financially harmed by the TISA violations.
