I saw that the CFPB is suing a company that I believe has harmed me. Can I be part of the lawsuit?
No. Individual consumers cannot be part of CFPB lawsuits and the CFPB can’t provide legal representation for individual consumers.
Instead, the CFPB represents the interests of the government. However, if the CFPB is able to resolve the case, you may be eligible for payments, in the event of a settlement.
TIP: If you believe you were harmed by a company against which the CFPB has filed a lawsuit, you should submit a complaint online or by calling (855) 411-2372.
TIP: If you think your story or other information may be important for an ongoing case, you can tell the CFPB your story. Be sure to include your contact information so we can follow up if we need any additional information.
