Discover Bank to Pay $18.5 Million in Fines, Refunds

Discover Bank and two affiliates will pay $18.5 million in consumer refunds and fines for using illegal practices while servicing private student loans. The company overstated the minimum amounts due on billing statements, failed to provide information borrowers needed to obtain federal income tax benefits and used illegal debt-collection practices by calling borrowers early in the morning and late at night. The bank declined to comment on the consent order and neither admitted nor denied the findings. The bank must also pay a $2.5 million CFPB penalty, as well as ensure that it accurately presents minimum required loan payments, sends clear and accurate tax information to borrowers and stops phoning borrowers during early and late hours.
