Enforcement by the numbers
See summary data on all the Bureau’s public enforcement actions and ordered consumer relief.
When we take an enforcement action against an entity or individual we found or allege has violated the law we will post filings and other related materials here. To increase transparency of the Bureau’s public enforcement actions, we have also posted summary data on all the Bureau’s public enforcement actions. The summary data is updated at the end of each calendar year.

Notes: These data reflect publicly available information for enforcement actions as of the date of publication. These data do not reflect non-publicly available information about consumer relief and penalties resulting from enforcement actions. Historically, the CFPB has reported non-public information in the aggregate, thereby protecting confidential information. Because these reported data are based on only publicly available data, totals of the data will differ from historic aggregated totals that included non-publicly available information. Additionally, because these data reflect ordered relief as of the date of publication, totals of these data may differ from historic aggregated totals to the extent final orders may have been vacated or otherwise modified.
