CFPB and FTC Begin Sharing Consumer Complaints

The CFPB began sharing consumer complaints with the FTC and other law enforcement personnel through the FTC’s Consumer Sentinel, an online database of consumer complaints only available to law enforcement personnel.  This step was taken pursuant to section 1024 of the Dodd-Frank Act, which requires the CFPB to share information with the FTC and other state and federal agencies.
