New Rip-offs

Have you been ripped off by unfair lending or financial practices?

For years, government regulators have turned a blind eye to abusive financial practices and we’ve all paid a price. We’re working to put an end to tricky financial products and we’re on the look-out for new rip-offs as they emerge. Help us keep an eye on what’s happening in the financial marketplace so we know where to push for reform.
