Our topic for the webinar will UDAAP -Unfair, Deceptive and (thanks to Dodd-Frank) Abusive Acts and practices. If your financial institution offers loans or deposit accounts, you need to have a game plan for the revised UDAAP standards. Don't be fooled that UDAP is a simply a "big bank" problem, even though the CFPB announced large dollar settlements last year. Since 2008, 43% of UDAP violations cited by the FDIC were for banks with total assets of $250 million or less. These violations can cause down-graded consumer compliance ratings, restitution, and CMP's. An FDIC supervised community bank in Indiana was surprised by an $82,500 UDAP fine for Reg E claims. What did they do wrong? How does it compare to your Reg E investigation procedures? Financial institutions should also pay attention to THIRD PARTY services, for example, Reward Checking programs. A community bank was cited for UDAAP penalties for claiming to give credit for 5 items per month. The bank failed to specify that the items had to have been posted in each monthly cycle. The restitution was NOT made public, but a reliable source estimated thatit exceeded $1 million dollars!
There have also been "big bank" actions. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced consent settlements with three major consumer financial services companies - Capital One Bank, Discover credit card company, and American Express Bank- over alleged deceptive and illegal practices involving add-on products for credit cards. These three actions alone, which took place from July to September 2012, resulted in restitution and refunds for consumers of $425 million, in addition to over $100 million in civil penalties paid to the Bureau and other agencies.
