Notice about possible “sweepstakes” scam

By

We are receiving inquiries from consumers about phone calls about a sweepstakes offer from the CFPB. The CFPB did not make these calls or direct others to make these phone calls on our behalf.

These phone calls may be malicious. To minimize the risk this type of call may present, we suggest if you receive such a call you do not provide any personal, consumer, or commercial information.

The CFPB continues to investigate this incident and will respond accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience this incident may have caused you.

Chris Willey is the CFPB’s Chief Information Officer.
