2018-BCFP-0008Document 1Filed 11/20/2018Page 5 of 29IVBureau Findings and ConclusionsThe Bureau finds the following:4.Respondent is a non-depository consumer financial services companyheadquartered in Dallas, Texas.5.Respondent is a “covered person” as that term is defined by 12 U.S.C. § 5481(6).Findings and Conclusions as to Respondent’s MisrepresentationsRegarding S-GUARD GAP6.During the GAP Relevant Period, Respondent marketed S-GUARD GAP as ameans to cover the “gap” between a consumer’s primary auto insurance payoutand the consumer’s outstanding auto loan balance in the event that a consumersuffered a total loss of his or her vehicle.7.Respondent marketed S-GUARD GAP through telemarketing, print, andelectronic media.8.Respondent used the following language to market S-GUARD GAP: “Todaycomprehensive and liability insurance combined still don’t provide true fullcoverage. You have to fill the GAP.”9.Respondent also used the following language to market S-GUARD GAP: “Yourauto insurance may be inadequate to protect you financially in case of a totalloss through accident or theft. If your loan balance is greater than the currentcash value of your car, GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) can be a great way toprotect you. Your insurance payout could end here. GAP takes care of the rest.”10.Respondent’s S-GUARD GAP was actually subject to a loan-to-value (LTV)limitation of 125%. If, at the time of purchase, the consumer’s loan exceeded125% of the vehicle’s value—a value determined by the smallest of three
2018-BCFP-0008Document 1Filed 11/20/2018Page 6 of 29potential values—Respondent would exclude that difference from any SGUARD GAP proceeds.11.In those situations, Respondent’s S-GUARD GAP may not cover the consumer’soutstanding auto loan balance in the event that a consumer suffered a total lossof his or her vehicle and the consumer’s primary auto insurance wasinsufficient to cover the entire outstanding loan balance.12.Respondent did not inform GAP Consumers at any time whether the LTVlimitation applied to them.13.Beginning at least April 1, 2012, Respondent sold S-GUARD GAP toapproximately 44,180 consumers with LTVs above 125% at the time of thevehicle purchase.14.Section 1036(a)(1)(B) of the CFPA prohibits “unfair, deceptive, or abusive” actsor practices. 12 U.S.C. § 5536(a)(1)(B).15.As described in Paragraphs 6 through 13, in connection with the advertising,marketing, promoting, offering for sale, or sale of S-GUARD GAP, in numerousinstances, Respondent has represented, expressly or impliedly, that S-GUARDGAP would provide “true full coverage” by waiving the full amount leftoutstanding on a consumer’s loan after the primary auto insurance policy paidout.16.In fact, S-GUARD GAP was subject to an LTV limitation of 125%. As a result,consumers who purchased S-GUARD GAP for a loan that had an LTV greaterthan 125% would not receive the “true full coverage” Respondent advertised.
2018-BCFP-000817.Document 1Filed 11/20/2018Page 7 of 29Thus, Respondent’s representations, as described in Paragraph 15, constitutedeceptive acts or practices in violation of sections 1031(a) and 1036(a)(1)(B) ofthe CFPA, 12 U.S.C. §§ 5531(a), 5536(a)(1)(B).Findings and Conclusions as to Respondent’s MisrepresentationsRegarding Extensions18.During the Extension Relevant Period, Respondent offered Extensions throughoutbound telephone calls to consumers who had missed at least one paymenton their auto loans. These outbound telephone calls were conducted bycustomer call representatives, whom Respondent directed to adhere to scriptsthat Respondent developed.19.Respondent’s scripts directed customer call representatives explaining theterms of Extensions to consumers to tell consumers that the loan maturity datewould be extended and that “interest would continue to accrue.”20.Respondent’s scripts further instructed call representatives that an Extension“mov[es] one or more monthly payments to the end of the loan.” Respondent’scustomer call representatives then told consumers that the missed paymentswould be “moved to the end of the loan.”21.In Respondent’s written Deferment and Extension Agreements provided tocertain consumers, Respondent stated that it will “extend the maturity date of[the consumer’s] Contract for the same number of months” as the months thatRespondent extended the loan. In fact, the Extension Consumers would have tocontinue to pay back their loans beyond the number of months extended due tothe interest accrued on the principal during the extension period.
2018-BCFP-000822.Document 1Filed 11/20/2018Page 8 of 29Respondent’s customer call representatives did not disclose how principal andinterest would be allocated in payments following the extension period.Respondent’s customer call representatives told consumers that payments,once resumed at the end of the extension period, would remain the same asbefore.23.Respondent’s scripts for offering Extensions stated that “interest wouldcontinue to accrue,” but Respondent failed to explain to consumers when thatinterest would be paid or that the interest accrued during the extension periodwould have to be paid off in full before the consumer would be able to pay downany principal, resulting in slower principal reduction and more interest paid,even if the consumer made timely payments, over the life of the loan.24.Respondent’s customer call representatives did not disclose to ExtensionConsumers before enrollment the additional amount of interest that consumerswould have to pay over the life of the loan by entering into Extensions.25.Respondent’s call representatives told consumers that interest continued toaccrue during the Extension and that the loan maturity date would beextended, which likely created the misimpression that the interest would not bepaid immediately upon a consumer’s next scheduled payment. In fact, the nextpayment the consumer made would first be applied to the interest accrued onthe unpaid amount financed from the date Respondent last received a paymentfrom the consumer.26.During the Extension Relevant Period, Respondent has enrolled consumersinto more than 2.3 million Extensions.
2018-BCFP-000827.Document 1Filed 11/20/2018Page 9 of 29Section 1036(a)(1)(B) of the CFPA prohibits “unfair, deceptive, or abusive” actsor practices. 12 U.S.C. § 5536(a)(1)(B).28.As described in Paragraphs 18 through 26, in connection with the advertising,marketing, promoting, or offering of Extensions, in numerous instances,Respondent represented expressly or impliedly that the extended payment(including interest accrued during the extension period) would be added to theend of the consumer’s loan, and that the repayment period would be extendedfor the same number of months for which the Extension Consumers enteredinto an Extension.29.In fact, the interest that accrued during a consumer’s Extension would be paidimmediately after the Extension ended upon a consumer’s next scheduledpayment, and Extension Consumers would have to continue to repay theirloans for a greater number of months than the duration of the extension period.30.Thus, Respondent’s representations, as described in Paragraph 28, constitutedeceptive acts or practices in violation of sections 1031(a) and 1036(a)(1)(B) ofthe CFPA, 12 U.S.C. §§ 5531(a), 5536(a)(1)(B).ORDERVConduct ProvisionsIT IS ORDERED, under sections 1053 and 1055 of the CFPA, that:31.Respondent, and its officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys whohave actual notice of this Consent Order, whether acting directly or indirectly,in connection with the advertising, marketing, promotion, offering for sale,
