On February 23, 2024, after the market closed, the public version of a Decision and Order (the “Order”) of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) was published concerning World Acceptance.  Pursuant to the Order, the CFPB ordered Federal Supervision of World Acceptance because it “is engaging, or has engaged, in conduct that poses risks to consumers with regard to the offering or provision of one or more consumer financial products or services.”  Among other things, the Order states as follows:

  • “World Acceptance does not adequately explain to its customers that the insurance coverage World Acceptance offers is optional, which may cause consumers to be deceived or mislead into purchasing coverage they do not want or need. . . ”
  • The CFPB “has reasonable cause to determine that World Acceptance engages in excessive, harassing, and coercive collection practices. . . ”
  • The CFPB “has reasonable cause to determine that World Acceptance furnishes inaccurate information to consumer reporting agencies or fails to adequately respond to consumer disputes regarding the accuracy of information it has furnished. . . “
  • The CFPB “has reasonable cause to determine that World Acceptance’s business model relies on serially refinancing its loans, a practice that may harm consumers in a variety of ways.”
