Oct 7 15
Fifth Third won't exit any additional markets beyond Pittsburgh and St. Louis. The bank is cutting 100 branches or 7.7% of its retail footprint under a consolidation plan announced in June. Last month, the bank said it would sell off more than 30 offices in separate deals in Pennsylvania and Missouri. On October 5, 2015, bank officials said the remaining cuts will be achieved by trimming locations in the 10 states where Fifth Third will continue to do retail banking.
Fifth Third Bank to Pay Approximately $85 Million to the Federal Government to Settle Claims Relating to the Practices in Connection with Loans Insured by the Federal Housing Administration
Oct 6 15
The United States Department of Justice announced that Fifth Third Bank will pay approximately $85 million to the federal government to settle claims under the False Claims Act relating to the Bank's practices in connection with loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). The settlement also resolves a whistleblower lawsuit filed by Kenney & McCafferty in June, 2011 in the Southern District of New York. Kenney & McCafferty filed the whistleblower complaint on behalf of a former chief appraiser at the Bank, who alleged a broad range of commercial and residential mortgage violations, including fraudulent appraisal practices, which resulted in significant losses to the federal government. The lawsuit was filed under the qui tam, or whistleblower, provisions of the False Claims Act. These provisions permit private parties to sue on behalf of the United States when they believe an individual or company has submitted false claims for government funds. Fraud on the government's mortgage programs has become a major source of False Claims Act recoveries in the wake of the mortgage crisis, and the Fifth Third settlement marks another significant victory for both the government and the taxpayers in this line of cases.
