Defend the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) reins in predatory practices in mortgage lending, student loans, credit cards, debt collection, payday and title lending and more. We need a strong and independent CFPB to make sure the marketplace works for consumers.
The CFPB faces threats that would significantly weaken its ability to protect consumers. We need your help to defend the CFPB!
Over the past 5 years the CFPB has:
- Returned $11.7 billion in restitution to 27 million consumers impacted by illegal and predatory financial practices
- Developed tools to help people make financial decisions like paying off debt, buying a home, going to college, and saving for retirement
- Resolved over one million consumer complaints
