Violation Tracker Individual Record
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ordered Springstone Financial, LLC to provide $700,000 in relief to victims of deceptive credit enrollment tactics. Many consumers who signed up for Springstone's deferred-interest loan product at dental offices to pay for dental work were led to believe that the product was interest free. In fact, interest accrued from the date of the consumer's purchase and was charged if the balance was not paid in full before the promotional period ended. Approximately 3,200 consumers who signed up for the product ultimately were charged and paid deferred interest.
