(***)The bank behind (****)Apple Card(*****) is facing legal scrutiny over accusations of inequality. New York’s Department of Financial Services has (******)launched(*****) an investigation into Goldman Sachs’ practices after Basecamp founder David Heinemeier Hansson (*******)accused(*****) Apple (and really, Goldman) of sexism when determining credit limits. He received a limit (***************) times higher than his wife despite his her 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.(********)
