ProPublica and WNYC are investigating whether the Consumer Financial Protection Agency is enforcing federal consumer financial laws and holding companies accountable.
They want to hear from people who work at the agency and those who have left recently, particularly people who are familiar with enforcement actions, supervisory exams, and proposed rules like those governing payday lending and debt collection.
They also want to hear from people outside the agency who have interacted with it in recent years. For example, people who filed a complaint with the CFPB against a debt collection or credit card company, or people who work for a company s being investigated by the CFPB. They are interested in hearing what happened to the case and about interactions with the CFPB.
Details about how to provide information for the project, including how to do so anonymously, is here.
