Suspicious Activity Reports on Elder Financial Exploitation
This study analyzes a rich, non-public data set to shed light on the volume and characteristics of elder financial abuse.
In this issue of Supervisory Highlights, we report examination findings in the areas of auto finance lending; credit card account management; debt collection; deposits; mortgage servicing; mortgage origination; service providers; short-term, small-dollar lending; remittances; and fair lending. As in past editions, this report includes information about recent public enforcement actions that were a result, at least in part, of our supervisory work. The report also includes information on the Bureau’s use of its supervisory and enforcement authority, recently released examination procedures, and Bureau guidance.
Our data point reports are prepared by our Office of Research to provide an evidence-based perspective on consumer financial markets, consumer behavior, and regulations to inform the public discourse.
