Members of the Federalist Society’s Financial Services & E-Commerce Practice Group Executive Committee provided an update on recent important activity at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on this Teleforum conference call. Recent developments included the CFPB’s proposal to make public the details of anonymous consumer complaints, the CFPB’s 573-page proposal to require residential mortgage lenders to report publicly 37 new details on each home mortgage application that they receive, a bill that was introduced in the U.S. Senate to increase the threshold size of banks subject to CFPB examination from $10 billion to $50 billion, an enforcement action that the CFPB commenced against a law firm for its debt collection practices, and a warning that the CFPB issued to consumers about virtual currencies like Bitcoin.
