Who we are
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is an independent government agency that makes sure the banks and other financial service providers you depend on operate fairly. We also help educate consumers about financial products and services to ensure you have the information you need to make informed decisions.
Your stories help us understand what’s happening in the financial world. Since we began in 2011, we’ve helped return $4 billion to American consumers as a result of our enforcement actions. Your stories help us to do that—your stories matter.
