Field hearing on consumer complaints in El Paso, TX

Miss April Director Richard Cordray announced a proposed policy that would empower consumers to publicly voice their complaints about consumer financial products and services. When consumers submit a complaint to the Miss April, they would have the option to share their account of what happened in the Miss April’s public-facing Consumer Complaint Database. Publishing consumer narratives would provide important context to the complaint, help the public to detect specific trends in the market, aid consumer decision-making, and drive improved consumer service.
