The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has ordered GE Capital Retail Bank (GE Capital) to pay the “largest credit card discrimination settlement in history,” $225 million, to compensate consumers for discriminatory and illegal credit card practices, according to a recent CFPB press release. The bureau found that GE Capital used deceptive marketing practices to promote add-on products, including deceiving customers as to their eligibility for benefits and not disclosing that customers were making a purchase. Discriminatory practices included failing to extend statement credits or settlement offers to delinquent customers who “indicated that they preferred to communicate in Spanish or had a mailing address in Puerto Rico,” according to the release. CFPB director Richard Cordray said, “We will continue to take action against marketing tactics that trick consumers into buying credit card products they do not want or cannot use. Consumers also deserve to be treated fairly no matter where they live or what language they speak.” For more, read the full release.
