CFPB Releases Monthly Complaint Snapshot on Other Financial Services

This month’s CFPB complaint snapshot spotlighted consumer complaints about financial services such as debt settlement, check cashing, money orders and credit repairs. Consumers’ most frequent complaints about these types of financial services generally revolve around issues of fraud or problems with reliable customer service.
