To settle allegations involving the sale of credit card debt JP Morgan Chase & Co. is reported to be paying $125 million. $50 million is for restitution.

The nation's largest bank has been accused of relying on robo-signing and other discredited methods of going after consumers for debts they may not have owed and for providing inaccurate information to debt buyers.

The states will split $95 million and the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will receive $30 million. Iowa’s Attorney General has been leading the charge.
