According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's blog, there
is a new potential scam out in the wild -- people contacting consumers
who pose as employees of the CFPB. These scammers claim that the CFPB
is offering debt consolidation services and attempt to obtain credit card
The CFPB DOES NOT offer debt consolidation services. It simply doesn't.
Under no circumstances should you give your credit card information to
anyone claiming to work for the CFPB. The CFPB will NOT call you and ask
for credit card information.
If you receive one of these calls, contact the CFPB at (855) 411-CFPB.
