We’re the CFPB
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly.
CFPB is warning consumers that someone using a CFPB staff name is calling consumers to assure them that a fake prize they've won through a lottery or sweepstakes is legitimate. This is a scam.
