Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Complaints Tallied For 2011 – Have You Filed Your Complaint?
Millions of homeowners are struggling to get banks to work to modify their mortgages. Yet only 2326 complaints have been filed with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It’s important that the CFPB understands the enormous scope of many homeowners have been victims of unfair and deceptive practices by mortgage banks. If you are a homeowner and feel you’ve been treated unfairly, please be proactive and file a complaint. The CFPB can’t be effective if homeowners don’t file complaints.
The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has received about 12,000 complaints over the past six months from consumers who had problems with their credit cards and mortgages, according to the CFPB’s semi-annual report to Congress.
In the half year ending Dec. 31, 2011, the agency received 9,307 credit card complaints and 2,326 mortgage complaints through its website, by phone, and through referrals from other federal regulators, according to the report released Tuesday.
