CFPB Announces Proposed 'Steering' Settlement
WASHINGTON (11/8/13)--A multi-million-dollar action is being sought against a Utah-based mortgage company for allegedly steering consumers into costlier mortgages, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced Thursday.
 
In January, the bureau announced rules designed to prevent unscrupulous mortgage loan originators from generating higher compensation for themselves by steering borrowers into risky and high-cost loans.
 
According the CFPB, it has asked a federal court to approve a consent order that would provide more than $9 million restitution for consumers from Castle & Cooke Mortgage, LLC, of Salt Lake City. Another $4 million would be obtained in civil money penalties against Castle & Cooke and two of its officers for allegedly paying loan officers illegal bonuses.
 
The CFPB also said, in a release, that the mortgage company maintains 45 branches and does business in 22 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Idaho, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, and Utah.
