    Anybody at the CFPB ever think about holding hearings on the West Coast? Those of us in the Pacific timezone are being treated as third-class citizens because you’all are only hearing from East Coast people.

    Five days notice? Are you aware of last minute airfare costs? Maybe not because you are fat-cat bureaucrats on the Federal Reserve’s money using government credit cards.

    It should be against the law and maybe a CFPB rule to let web sites give false information about someone.  Including information that may have been right at one time and posted on a web site run by the goverment, but then the informaiton is removed by the goverment because the information was incorect, or by court order, or the person was removed from the goverment site because of time or changes in the Law.  However private web sites have picked this information up before it was removed from the goverment web site. And now the private web sites are charging as much as $500.00 to the person to have the information removed from the private web site. This is the consumer being blackmailed because the goverment first posted the information on line and then removed it at no cost for what ever reason and yet the private (secodary web site) wants money to take the information off the private web site.

    I called CFPB on July 13, 2012. To gather some information. The hardship I have been working with here is important to me at the very least.
    After being connected with a CFPB representative , Talked and explained the nature of my call. I stopped talking and realized nobody was on the other end of the line. I didn’t hang up, I started asking ” Hello, is anyone there?”
      After about 30 to 40 seconds someone got back on the line and regurgitated some fairly useless information, Then proceeded to rush off the phone .

     I have been left feeling very disturbed by this. I didn’t call for a fix to my hardship. I call because I was directed to do so.

    Felt like a waist of my time.
