Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Website Opens for Business
In July 2010, Congress created a new federal agency to protect American consumers. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) mission is to make consumer financial markets work better for American families.
CFPB Director Elizabeth Warren sent an email message today announcing that the Bureau is “excited to announce the launch of [the Bureau] website, http://ConsumerFinance.gov, for one very important reason – to start a conversation with you.” Advocates and interested persons can post suggestions at for the Bureau at http://www.consumerfinance.gov/openforsuggestions. Bureau personnel will be actively responding to suggestions and engaging electronically with consumers and interested persons.
Other ways suggested to connect with the Bureau include: 1) record a YouTube video and upload it as a response to the welcome video at http://www.youtube.com/CFPB, 2) tweet your suggestion for the Bureau using the hashtag #CFPB, or 3) if you are on Facebook, “Like” the Bureau at http://www.facebook.com/CFPB, and post suggestions on the wall.
