A legal settlement will erase the debt 261 members of the U.S. military who are from Indiana owe a financing company.
The Indiana Attorney General and 12 other attorneys general and the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have settled a lawsuit with a consumer lending company based on California and Georgia.
Colfax Capital Corporation and Culver Capital, LLC, also known collectively as Rome Finance offered credit to consumers near military bases—promising instant financing with no money down.
But Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says the company did not disclose the amount those consumers would have to pay for the financing.
The more than 200 servicemembers in Indiana that used the company had about $1.5 million of debt. That will now be considered paid in full.
