Washington, DC – 24 November 2017 – A leading U.S. consumer watchdog is preparing to sue Santander bank alleging that the Spanish bank overcharged borrowers on auto loans, two sources familiar with the plans said on Friday.
22 November 2017 – In a world of lenders and forwarders so scared of the CFPB and it’s view of personal property fees that they wantonly and with complete disregard to the efforts and labor involved with the process, are requiring repossession agencies to waive all fees associated with it, it is refreshing to see a lender make a business decision that is reasonable and profitable to the agent.
Washington, DC – 15 November 2017 – Richard Cordray, the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”), announced Wednesday that he plans to step down from that post by the end of the month. Cordray’s term was otherwise set to expire in July of 2018.
So, what does this mean for the collections and repossession world?
Washington, DC – 12 September 2017 – In a report published September 12th by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), titled the “Supervisory Highlights, Issue 16, Summer 2017”, the CFPB released their findings from examinations of “servicers” overseeing repossession agents and how repossessions are conducted.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 14, 2016 – The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has indicated it is interested in looking at how repossession agencies charge consumers for items like vehicle storage and personal property. That could lead to investigations, financial penalties, or worse.
There is a strange phenomenon occurring in the asset recovery industry consisting of deep client involvement in the repossession process related to the control and intrusion in the actual act of the repossession.
For some reason the clients seem to be more involved with controlling the actions of the agent in the field for example the “NO CONTACT” with consumers or third parties dictates. What world do these people live in? Apparently, they have never worked an actual field assignment or they would understand that their absurd directive is an impossible demand.
