Payday Loan Group Slapped With Record $1.3B Fine for 700 Percent Lending Rates

NBC News-

A federal judge in Nevada said professional racecar driver Scott Tucker and several of his companies owe $1.27 billion to the Federal Trade Commission after systematically deceiving payday lending customers about the cost of their loans.

In one example, lending documents indicated that a customer who borrowed $500 would only have a finance charge of $150, for a total payment of $650 — but the actual finance charge was $1,425.

In a decision late on Friday, Chief Judge Gloria Navarro of the federal court in Las Vegas, Nevada said Tucker was “specifically aware” that customers often did not understand the terms of their loans, and was at least “recklessly indifferent” toward how those loans were marketed.
