Deferred-Interest Loan Investigation

Deferred-Interest Loan Promotion Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is investigating claims of consumers who were unaware of the conditions behind deferred interest loans. The deferred-interest loan investigation concerns consumers who are lured in by the appeal of the deferred interest loan, because of the “no interest” or “0% interest” for the promotional period. Deferred Interest loans are often provided by banks, such as Synchrony Bank or Citibank, through retailers such as Walmart, Sears, or Best Buy. This type of loan is appealing to many because it appears to offer the opportunity to receive a loan and make payments without interest for a set period of time. What many do not realize is that with deferred interest loans consumers who don’t pay off the entire balance before the promotional period ends may be charged retroactively for interest. Those who are motivated to sign up for deferred interest loan do so because of the promise of no interest for the promotional period, but often do not understand the inherent complexity of the loan they are signing. Thus, many who purchase deferred interest loans either default on their loans or are unable to pay off the balance before the deferred interest period ends. The following stores offer cards with deferred interest: Best Buy, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Kay’s Jewelers, Menards, Macy’s, Disney, and furniture stores, among others.
