Spring Financial Inc. has signed an Undertaking with Consumer Protection BC to refund payments made by eligible borrowers who entered into a Secured Savings Loan (SSL) credit agreement with the business between April 8, 2016, and March 12, 2021.
This result is due to a large volume of borrower complaints about the SSL product offered by Spring Financial. Under the terms of the Undertaking, Spring Financial is responsible for carrying out a detailed refund process and is required to contact all eligible consumers by mid-August.
If a borrower believes they are eligible for a refund and they don’t get the correspondence from Spring Financial, they are advised to contact the company directly.
To read all the terms and details of the refund process, read the Undertaking in full.
An Undertaking is a written agreement and one of the enforcement tools available to Consumer Protection BC under the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Act.
