CFPB Employee Files Whistle Blower Charges: Payday Lender Ace Cash Express $10M Fine Bogus

A former CFPB examiner filed whistle blower charges against her employer, the CFPB, claiming she was terminated for refusing to falsify ACE Cash Express documents that resulted in a $10,000,000 fine levied against Ace!

The CFPB continues to be revealed as a reprehensible, rogue government organization whose management enabled their personal prejudices to attempt to destroy lawful, private and publicly traded businesses.

Cassandra Jackson, a former CFPB employee, filed documents strongly indicating she was fired for attempting to report that Ace Cash Express was adhering to CFPB rules and regulations.

It’s common knowledge that Ace Cash Express chose to pay the $10M fine rather than enter into costly, lengthy legal challenges against the one governmental agency having unfathomable deep pockets.

Ms. Jackson also asserts that she “encountered widespread racism and gender discrimination from management” and was eventually forced out due to an “incredibly hostile work environment.”

Jackson said her superiors at the CFPB insisted she falsify documents while she investigated Texas-based payday lender, Ace Cash Express.

Jackson said “she was asked to remove document evidence proving that Ace Cash Express adhered to CFPB regulations and her superiors insisted she write a report including findings she knew to be “false and fabricated.”

“I was specifically told to cite Ace Cash Express for a violation for which I had verified the company was in compliance and to state that Ace Cash Express did not provide, and that the CFPB did not receive, documents that would have satisfied the CFPB’s guidelines, despite having received that information from Ace Cash Express,” Jackson said.

Payday Loan Borrowers: “Those People.”

Jer Trihouse Payday Loan Consulting

By: Jer Ayles. Banks do not want payday loan consumers as customers. It’s true that a bank’s cost of capital is low, but they do not service sub-$3000 signature loans efficiently enough to make serious profits. Frankly, they do not want to be bothered. Bankers are too busy funding Bitcoin ETF’s and ICO’s, even if only privately.

Simple minded bank employees just want to get the payday loan demographic out of their bank branches; “those people.” Anyone who has worked in a bank knows exactly what I’m saying.

Hell, even the CEO at Elevate, a publicly traded Internet lender that reinvented itself (100% payday loans to signature loans at 100%+ APR’s), said as much during a recent interview! Jer Trihouse.

The fact is, the CFPB is undergoing a major reconfiguration. Their unjustified attacks against lawful businesses are at an end. A “new sheriff is in town.” “The Trump administration now has a perfect opportunity to close the corrupt and ideologically partisan Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).” Payday lenders and other former, or potential, CFPB targets have been partying: World Acceptance (NASDAQ:WRLD), OneMain Holdings (NYSE:OMF), Santander Consumer (NYSE:SC), PHH Corp. (NYSE:PHH), Enova (NYSE:ENVA), Ezcorp (NASDAQ:EZPW)…

Meanwhile, our payday loan business model has evolved into a 6 – 24 month amortized loan product. ABILITY TO PAY HAS ALWAYS BEEN OF GREAT IMPORTANCE TO LENDERS; in spite of the ridiculous assertions made by politicians, the media and regulators.

Payday loan, car title, signature loan lenders… WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK! We submit our customers application data through a multitude of highly specialized underwriting data bases and perform significant due-diligence on every loan applicant. Ultimately our decision to fund a loan is based on our assessment of our loan applicant’s ability to pay us back.

This transaction – in spite of what the naysayers peddle – really MUST BE a win-win for both the lender and the consumer!

Meanwhile, there are basically three arenas you, as an entrepreneur, can go to battle in today:

  • Lending money to the masses. Your inventory? MONEY. (Yes dollars – not fruit, not books, not goods…) Profits? 100%+ annually IF you don’t screw up.
  • Cannabis. We all know that, in spite of the FED’s Schedule 1 designation, serious money continues to be made with the marijuana plant. Until the IRS cancels 280E, it’s a challenge to make serious, bankable profits. I’ve attended the biggest Cannabis Business Convention in the world the past 4 years in a row and it would blow your mind to witness the bags of cash floating around “looking” for a bank so the owner can legitimize their revenue.
  • Cryptos. I admit it. I got my Coinbase account back in 2013 and bought my first Bitcoin at $325. Today, I own Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin. I’m gambling on a few more today…

Lending Money: Now that the CFPB has been deconstructed by President Trump, the interest in launching and funding small dollar loan companies by venture capitalists, family offices, and entrepreneurs from all walks of life is through the roof! The business of lending money to the masses is back!!  You interested?
