Introduction and Link to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created in response to the economic crisis of 2008. Its primary responsibility is to protect consumers. If you are experiencing a problem with a consumer financial product, such as a credit card, mortgage, student loan, or a bank, the CFPB's website has resources and information to help. You may also lodge a complaint.
