13:14 EDTV, AXP, GE, MAJustice Department announces settlement with GE Capital Retail Bank
The Department of Justice and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced a settlement to resolve allegations that GE Capital Retail Bank, known as of this month as Synchrony Bank, engaged in a "nationwide pattern or practice of discrimination by excluding Hispanic borrowers from two of its credit card debt-repayment programs." The settlement resolves claims by the department and the CFPB that GE Capital violated the Equal Credit Opportunity Act by excluding borrowers who indicated that they preferred communications to be in Spanish or had a mailing address in Puerto Rico from two credit card debt-repayment programs. The settlement provides $169M in relief to approximately 108,000 borrowers in the form of monetary payments and the reduction, or complete waiver, of borrowers’ credit card balances. GE Capital has also agreed to eliminate negative credit reports for affected borrowers that occurred during periods of the alleged discrimination. Shares of credit card companies Visa (V), MasterCard (MA) and American Express (AXP) have moved off of their lows following the news from the Justice Department. The card companies sold off ahead of the DOJ's announcement that was dubbed a credit card enforcement action.
