New York investigates claims of sexism in Apple Card credit limits – Engadget, Engadget




The bank behindApple Cardis facing legal scrutiny over accusations of inequality. New York’s Department of Financial Services haslaunchedan investigation into Goldman Sachs’ practices after Basecamp founder David Heinemeier HanssonaccusedApple (and really, Goldman) of sexism when determining credit limits. He received a limit 20 times higher than his wife despite his higher credit score, and received no help from customer service apart from murmurs of a “formal internal complaint.” She eventually got a “VIP bump” to match his credit limit, but that appeared to have been a reaction to the public outcry. Hansson didn’t believe Apple or Goldman set out to be discriminatory, but that the outcome was sexist nonetheless.
