CFPB Files Settlement

Earlier this week, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) released details of its settlement with a debt collection company alleged to have had several compliance failures, an action that began in 2019. Notably, this company was pursued by the Bureau for:
  • Failing to have adequate policies and controls relating to credit reporting, including furnishing data and processing disputes;
  • Deficiencies in reviewing identity theft reports; and
