  • CFPB Takes Action Against Coding Boot Camp BloomTech and CEO Austen Allred for Deceiving Students and Hiding Loan Costs

    April 17, 2024

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued an order against BloomTech and its CEO, Austen Allred, for deceiving students about the cost of loans and making false claims about graduates’ hiring rates. The CFPB found that BloomTech and Allred falsely told students the school’s “income share” agreement contracts were not loans, when in fact the agreements were loans carrying an average finance charge of around $4,000. BloomTech and Allred lured prospective enrollees with inflated promises of job-placement rates as high as 86 percent, when the company’s internal metrics showed placement rates closer to 50 percent and in some cases as low as 30 percent. The order permanently bans BloomTech from all consumer-lending activities and bans Allred from any student-lending activities for ten years. The CFPB is also ordering BloomTech and Allred to cease collecting payments on income share loans for graduates who did not have a qualifying job, eliminate finance changes for certain agreements, and allow students the option to withdraw without penalty. BloomTech and Allred must also pay over $164,000 in civil penalties, which will be deposited in the CFPB’s victims relief fund.

Member Success Stories

Success Story

We engaged Compliance Alliance nearly four years ago to assist in managing the many new regulations and continuous changes to existing regulations. The tools C/A offered at that time were excellent and just continue to get better! We find the policy templates easy to customize, which is a tremendous help. Several employees at our bank utilize the online chat feature which is a GREAT tool! C/A’s representatives are experts, and will immediately respond to our request for information. If they are in chat with another client, they will even let you know, so you are not left wondering if they have received your request to chat. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Compliance Alliance … GREAT resource in all areas of regulatory compliance!”

Success Story

Compliance Alliance is a great fit for Farmers State Bank, a 70M bank in mid-Michigan. As the Chief Marketing Officer, I’m constantly developing new marketing pieces for the bank and Compliance Alliance is always right there with me keeping my promotional concepts up-to-date with the latest regulatory requirements. I can email my ideas directly to Compliance Alliance knowing that I’ll have a response the next day! This gives me the peace of mind I need to focus on our campaigns and other programs while not getting bogged down with regulatory worries. highly recommend a partnership with Compliance Alliance.”

Success Story

The chat feature’s quick turn-around time is what separates C/A from other compliance professionals. Not only is the response quick, in our experience, it is very detailed. And to have the transcript from the chat emailed for future reference—that has been very beneficial on many occasion. My compliance officers love the chat. Personally, I recall a time when in a meeting, our president had a question I could not answer. I logged into a chat session while the meeting was happening, got an answer, and was able to respond in minutes. I couldn’t do that with any other service.”
