13:23 EDTGESynchrony Bank resolves outstanding inquiries in settlement with CFPB, DOJ
Synchrony Bank announced it has reached agreements with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Department of Justice to resolve two previously disclosed inquiries. The CFPB agreement and a related DOJ agreement resolve an issue related to the omission of certain delinquent cardholders with Puerto Rico addresses or Spanish-preferred indicators on their accounts from two collections offers. The Bank identified this matter through its own internal audit, promptly reported it to the CFPB, and commenced a remediation that will result in $11M of payments or credits on active accounts, all but $2M of which has already been paid, and $158M of waivers or credits on closed and written-off accounts. The CFPB agreement also resolves the Banks involvement in the CFPBs industry-wide investigation related to Add On products. The Banks settlement covers telesales of debt cancellation products from January 2010 to October 2012. The Bank ceased such sales in 2012, and after its own internal review, refunded more than $11M in fees. As part of the CFPB agreement, it will refund an additional $32M, and pay civil penalties of $3.5M. On June 2, GE Capital Retail Bank changed its name to Synchrony Bank and is part of the GE Capital Retail Finance business. The name change is currently in process and the transition will occur over the next few months, Synchrony stated.
