Credit Acceptance Corp. (CACC) Accused of Willfully Deceiving Consumers and Investors
According to the complaint, Credit Acceptance Corp. purports to improve the lives of its borrowers by improving their credit scores and allowing them to move on to more traditional sources of financing. However, during the relevant period, the Company failed to disclose to investors that: (i) it was making high-interest subprime auto loans to borrowers who would be unable to repay the loans; (ii) borrowers were subject to hidden finance charges, resulting in loans exceeding the usury rate ceiling mandated by state law; and (iii) it took excessive and illegal measures to collect debt from defaulted borrowers. On August 28, 2020, the Massachusetts Attorney General confirmed this behavior when it filed a complaint against Credit Acceptance Corp. for allegedly making unfair and deceptive auto loans to thousands of Massachusetts consumers, providing investors with false or misleading information regarding auto securities they offered, and engaging in unfair debt collection practices. The complaint detailed how the Company profited at the expense of its borrowers, who were left with thousands of dollars in debt, ruined credit, and no vehicle. The Massachusetts complaint alleges that Credit Acceptance Corp. defrauded as many as 24,000 borrowers over a six-year period, and seeks $120 million in damages, or $5,000 per violation. In response to the filing of the Massachusetts complaint, Credit Acceptance Corp’s stock price took a massive hit, declining $85.36, or 18%, over two days.
