Lessons Learned from CFPB Credit Reporting Exams: The CFPB’s Special Report

March 6, 2017, Covington Alert

Following up on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (the “Bureau,” or “CFPB”) monthly complaint report highlighting credit reporting issues (and particularly issues with accuracy and disputes), on March 2, 2017, the CFPB issued a special edition of its Supervisory Highlights bulletin focusing on consumer reporting issues, highlighting those same concerns. Director Cordray also issued remarks relating to these issues the same day during the Bureau’s Community Advisory Board meeting.
