The New York AG is also investigating.

Signet Jewelers revealed that it is under investigation by the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in connection with its “credit practices, promotions, and payment protection products.”

 The CFPB’s Office of Enforcement “is considering recommending that the CFPB take legal action against Signet” alleging violations of the Consumer Financial Protection Act and the Truth in Lending Act, Signet (NYSE: SIG) stated in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

Signet states in the filing that it “has cooperated and continues to fully cooperate with the CFPB.” It has informed the bureau of its “belief that the potential claims lack merit.”

New York’s attorney general “is investigating similar issues under its jurisdiction,” the company said. Signet said it’s also cooperating with that investigation.

“Signet continues to believe that its acts and practices relating to the matters under investigation are lawful,” the company stated in its SEC filing.

Signet is the parent of Sterling Jewelers, which operates Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, Kay Jewelers and Zales.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
