What options do i have to act against Bank of America for leaking consumer credit reports?

I have an e-mail sending me multiple consumer credit reports and loan docs while at the same time they kept "misplacing" my information. Eventually i stopped sending them information and they used that as a reason to start the foreclosure process.
