Wells Fargo, JPMorgan settle mortgage kickbacks probe

WASHINGTON (AP) — Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase have agreed to pay more than $35 million combined to resolve claims that loan officers at the two banks received kickbacks in exchange for steering mortgage borrowers to a Maryland title company.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said Thursday that JPMorgan and Wells Fargo each agreed to consent orders filed in federal court to settle the claims.

Wells Fargo has agreed to pay $24 million in civil penalties and $10.8 million to consumers affected by the scheme. JPMorgan is to pay $600,000 in penalties and about $300,000 in redress.

The CFPB and the Maryland attorney general found that loan officers at the banks referred borrowers to a now-defunct title company, Genuine Title, in exchange for cash and marketing services.

Federal law prohibits giving anything of value in exchange for a referral of business related to a real estate settlement service.

According to the CFPB, loan officers at Wells Fargo and JPMorgan sent homebuyers financing a mortgage through the banks to Genuine Title, which provided real estate closing services.

In return, the title company, which went out of business last April, provided the loan officers with cash, as well as consumer information and marketing services aimed at helping them drum up more loan business, the CFPB said.

“These banks allowed their loan officers to focus on their own illegal financial gain rather than on treating consumers fairly,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray.

The CFPB noted that more than 100 Wells Fargo loan officers in at least 18 branches, mainly in Maryland and Virginia, participated in the scheme, referring thousands of loans to Genuine Title.

The agency also contends that Wells Fargo failed to stop the scheme, even though it had multiple warnings of what was going on, including a federal lawsuit that alleged the bank’s loan officers had illegal arrangements with the title company.

In a statement, Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Goyda said the bank has fully cooperated with the CFPB, fired the employees who were involved in the scheme and taken steps to enhance its procedures to provide greater oversight and monitoring of both the process and its employees.

The agency found that at least six Chase loan officers in three different branches in Maryland, Virginia and New York were involved in the scheme.

Jason Lobo, a spokesman for Chase Mortgage Banking, said the bank’s own investigation into the kickback scheme found six of its mortgage loan officers received marketing services, though not any cash, in return for steering borrowers on 191 loans to Genuine Title.

“We also found no evidence that borrowers incurred title fees in excess of the market rates,” he said.

Four of the Chase loan officers had left the bank when the scheme was uncovered. The bank fired the two others who remained, Lobo noted.

The year in business: Payday loan debate heats up in Baton Rouge …

Lobbyists for the payday loan industry stormed Baton Rouge over the summer as state lawmakers deliberated tighter controls on short-term, high-interest loans.

Proponents for stricter rules argued payday loans prey on the working class and trap them in a cycle of debt that can ruin their credit.

But payday lenders said restrictions would put them out of business and stymie a much-needed source of lending for the poor.

By the end of the 2014 legislative session, the payday loan industry had beaten back several proposals to limits its activity. But the fight isn’t over.

What happened: The Legislature considered several proposals putting limits on payday loans during the 2014 session.

Initial bills, sponsored by Rep. Ted James, D – Baton Rouge and Sen. Ben Nevers, D – Bogalusa, proposed capping payday loan interest rates at 36 percent annually.

A later draft abandoned the 36 percent cap and instead proposed limiting borrowers to 10 payday loans per year. It also required payday lenders to enter transaction into a database reviewed by the Office of Financial Institutions.

The bill failed on the Senate floor in late April, despite the support of consumer advocates, including AARP Louisiana and Louisiana Together, a statewide network of religious and civic organizations.

Senators who voted against the bill were wary of placing limits on lending, which they said could damage the industry and hurt consumers.

What’s next: AARP Louisiana, Louisiana Together and other groups that led the initial charge for limits have vowed to continue their push in the 2015 session.

Payday lenders are likely to face heightened scrutiny in coming years, even if Louisiana rules do not change.

Federal regulators have already cracked down on banks that offer short-term products.

In July, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reached a $10 million settlement with payday lender ACE Cash Express over illegal debt collection tactics. The agency, which became the first to oversee payday loans in 2012, is in the process of drafting rules for the entire industry.

In the meantime, traditional lenders, including Liberty Bank & Trust in New Orleans, are experimenting with ways to offer small loans and other products tailored for low-income borrowers.

5 Top Alternatives To A Reverse Mortgage

If you’re 62 or older, you may be able to convert the equity in your home into cash with a reverse mortgage. This loan lets you borrow against the equity in your home to get a fixed monthly payment or line of credit. Repayment is deferred until you move out, sell the home, become delinquent on property taxes and/or insurance, the home falls into disrepair, or you pass away. Then the house is sold and any excess after repayment goes to you or your heirs.

Home equity loans can be problematic if not done correctly ( see 5 Reverse Mortgage Scams ) and require careful attention to the rights of the surviving spouse, if you are married. And of course, the end of the process means you or your heirs give up your home.

There are other ways to tap into your home’s equity that are worth considering. Here, we take a quick look at the top alternatives to reverse mortgages.

1. Refinance Your Existing Mortgage

If you have an existing home loan, you may be able to refinance your mortgage to lower your monthly payments and free up some cash. One of the best reasons to refinance is to lower the interest rate on your mortgage, which can save you money over the life of the loan, decrease the size of your monthly payments and help you build equity in your home faster. Another perk: If you refinance instead of getting a reverse mortgage, your home remains an asset for you and your heirs.

2. Take Out a Home-Equity Loan

Essentially a second mortgage, a home-equity loan lets you borrow money by leveraging the equity you have in your home. It works the same way as your primary mortgage: You receive the loan as a single lump-sum payment, and you cannot draw any additional funds from the house. The interest you pay is generally tax deductible for loan amounts up to $100,000.

These are generally fixed-rate loans, which provide security against rising interest rates. Because of that, the interest rate is typically higher than for a home equity line of credit. As with refinancing, your home remains an asset for you and your heirs. Because your home acts as collateral, it’s important to understand that your home is at risk of foreclosure if you default on the loan.

3. Take Out a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

A home equity line of credit, or HELOC, gives you the option to borrow up to your approved credit limit, on an as-needed basis. Unlike a home equity loan, where you pay interest on the entire loan amount whether you’re using the money or not, with a HELOC you pay interest only on the amount of money you actually withdraw. HELOCs are adjustable loans; your monthly payment will change with fluctuating interest rates. The interest is generally tax deductible for loan amounts up to $100,000, and your home remains an asset for you and your heirs. As with a home-equity loan, your home acts as collateral and could be foreclosed if you default.

4. Sell Your Home (and Maybe Downsize)

The other options so far keep you in your existing home. If you’re willing and able to move, however, selling your home gives you access to the equity you have built. This option may be especially appealing if your current residence is too big for your current needs, too difficult/costly to maintain or has prohibitively expensive property taxes. The proceeds can be used to buy a smaller, more affordable home (or you can rent), and you’ll have extra money to save, invest or spend as needed. See Downsize Your Home To Downsize Expenses and Avoid the Downsides of Downsizing In Retirement.

5. Sell Your Home to Your Children

Another alternative to a reverse mortgage is to sell your home to your child (or children). One approach is a sales-leaseback agreement, where you sell the house, then rent it back using the cash from the sale. As landlords, your children get rental income and will be able to take deductions for depreciation, real estate taxes and maintenance.

Another approach is a private reverse mortgage, which works like a reverse mortgage, except the interest and fees stay in the family. Your children make regular payments to you, and when it’s time to sell the house, they recoup their contributions (and interest). Although it’s not free to set up this type of arrangement, it is typically much cheaper than getting a reverse mortgage through a bank, and the home remains an asset for your and your children.

Selling to your children has tax and estate-planning ramifications, so it’s important to work with a qualified tax specialist or attorney.

The Bottom Line

Reverse mortgages may be a good option for people who are “house-rich and cash-poor”, with lots of home equity, but not enough income for retirement. There are other options, however, that allow you to tap into the equity you have built up in your home.

Before making any decisions, it’s a good idea to research your options, shop around for the best rates (where applicable) and consult with a qualified tax specialist or attorney. See Is Relying On Home Equity In Retirement A Good Idea? , and Reverse Mortgage Or Home-Equity Loan?

Will work for loan payments

A startup aimed at student loan borrowers who have more time than money claims to have helped eliminate more than $100,000 in student loan debt through its platform.

Gradible connects borrowers with businesses that pay users for small-scale tasks–but not in cash. Instead, Gradible pays in “LoanCreds,” which, when redeemed, pay the user’s student loan directly.

“Student loan debt is incurred upon the normal path that people are told they should take to expand their opportunities,” Gradible co-founder Pete Wylie said. “A lot of people we spoke to found that that wasn’t exactly how things worked out for them.”

Though Wylie acknowledged that the problem of student loan debt is systemic, he said supplementing people’s incomes could help.

“The real problem was lack of repayment alternatives, lack of ability to accelerate or increase the amount [borrowers] were paying every month while also having a fulfilling life outside of work,” he said.

Users can write blog posts, use social media or do research for Gradible clients, which mainly are small companies looking for a flexible, educated workforce. Wylie declined to name companies specifically.

So far, Wylie said, about 5,000 users have signed up to do online odd jobs. Most of them, according to the Gradible website, already have full-time jobs and do Gradible work on the side.

The concept is similar to TaskRabbit, or even Craigslist, but the idea of doing odd jobs on the side is far older than the Internet. Paying directly to a loan servicer simply streamlines the process, Wylie said.

Global Cash Set to Acquire Multimedia Games for $1.2B

Global Cash Access Holdings (GCA) recently agreed to acquire Multimedia Games Holding Company (MGAM) for approximately $1.2 billion or $36.50 per share. This represents a 31.4% premium to Multimedia Games’ closing price of $27.78 on Sep 5.

Las Vegas-based Global Cash provides services such as cash advance, ATM cash withdrawals and check services to gaming industry companies. The company also sells slot machines and jackpot kiosks.

Multimedia Games primarily sells slot machines. As of Jun 30, 2014, the company’s installed base was approximately 13,167 units throughout North America.

The deal is expected to be immediately accretive to Global Cash Holdings. The combined entity is expected to earn cost synergies of approximately $30 million, favorably impacting profitability.

The combined entity is forecasted to yield earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (:EBITDA) of $217 million and revenues of $800 million. The proposed merger is expected to be completed in early 2015.

Per Global Cash, the deal will diversify its revenue base, broaden product portfolio and enhance recurring revenue base (approximately 80%) thereby expanding margins. Global Cash Holdings believes that the acquisition provides it a significant cross-selling opportunity and will help it to penetrate new markets.

Global Cash announced that it has received financing commitment from Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank for $800 million Term B loan, $400 million Senior Notes and a revolving credit facility of $50 million.

However, the debt financing will significantly leverage Global Cash’s balance sheet. As of Jun 30, 2014, Global Cash had cash & cash equivalents of $162 million and borrowings of $96 million.

Currently, gaming operators are replacing existing machines at a much slower rate than they have historically, primarily due to the challenging environment and the need to preserve cash. Frequent consolidations have also become a norm as large established players continue to search for distressed companies for cheap.

Scientific Games (SGMS) recently agreed to buy Bally Technologies (BYI), while Italian operator GTECH Spa is in the process of acquiring slot maker International Game Technology. We believe that the current deal makes Global Cash an attractive acquisition candidate in these sluggish market conditions.

Currently, Global Cash has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).
