Home / Daily Dose / NAFCU Voices Concern Over Issues Presented by CFPB’s Complaint Database The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago NAFCU Voices Concern Over Issues Presented by CFPB’s Complaint Database in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) launched its consumer complaint database in July 2012, one year after beginning operations, and it began publishing complaint narratives in June 2015.Some financial companies expressed concern over the Bureau’s publishing of complaint narratives because the narratives may damage a company’s reputation based on information that is unverified. The latest organization to air a grievance about the CFPB’s Consumer Complaint Database is the National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU), which wrote a letter to the Bureau saying that the Database “continues to have practical implications that undermine the complaint resolution process.””While NAFCU and our members appreciate the CFPB continued attention to improving the usability of this tool, we remain deeply concerned about the existing reputational and consumer privacy issues with the current Database,” wrote Kavitha Subramanian, Regulatory Affairs Counsel for NAFCU.A spokesperson from the CFPB could not immediately be reached when contacted for comment by DS News.A sample from the CFPB’s Complaint Snapshot for July 2015.NAFCU’s letter pointed out that the CFPB requested industry feedback on how to improve its Complaint Database so that users and market participants can effectively and easily compare products and services. Subramanian stated in the letter that the NAFCU and its members “strongly believe” that the CFPB needs to address the reputational and privacy risks presented, and that the inadvertent release of personal information may put an individual’s secure financial information at risk.”For example, in reviewing the CFPB’s June 2015 release of nearly 8,000 consumer complaints, industry has identified a number of narratives that were not properly scrubbed of personal information prior to being published online,” Subramanian wrote. “Although the CFPB staff was quick to respond to rectify such occurrences, the CFPB must pay more attention to protecting sensitive personally identifiable information as the number of published consumer narratives increases.”NAFCU expressed skepticism that the benefits of the CFPB’s Consumer Complaint Database justified the potential reputation and privacy risks presented. The letter contends that harmful reputational risks to credit unions and other financial institutions exist because there is no mechanism to validate a consumer’s comments. And because the consumer remains anonymous, credit unions and other organizations are unable to communicate with them directly and effectively address and/or resolve their complaint, which presents a no-win situation for the credit union or financial institution.”On one hand, if a credit union fails to respond, it appears as though there was no acknowledgement or resolution by the credit union of the customer’s complaint,” Subramanian wrote. “On the other hand, credit unions are concerned about the risk of disclosing personally identifiable financial information. This encourages credit unions to respond with a generic response, rather than allowing credit unions to deal with their members directly and personally.””On one hand, if a credit union fails to respond, it appears as though there was no acknowledgement or resolution by the credit union of the customer’s complaint. On the other hand, credit unions are concerned about the risk of disclosing personally identifiable financial information.”Subramanian said the “current framework imposes additional, and often unnecessary, costs on financial services providers” by requiring them to coordinate their complaint resolution processes with the CFPB, individual state regulators, and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), which creates burdensome costs–in particular for institutions with smaller staffs. The added requirements increase the time for processing complaints, which is problematic for consumers seeking timely resolutions, Subramanian wrote. The resolution process becomes duplicative, according to the letter, when a credit union resolves a complaint internally but is still required to provide a response in the Bureau’s Complaint Database, which “further exacerbates valuable time and staff resources with little benefit to consumers,” Subramanian wrote.In the letter, Subramanian wrote that NAFCU “strongly recommends” that the CFPB cease publishing the monthly Complaint Snapshot Report, which began in in July. The purpose of the snapshot is to spotlight a particular product and geographic location, but according to NAFCU, the analytics are not based on an industry-wide collection of data; they provide only an “insular view of market-data based only on complaint information that the CFPB receives” and therefore do not paint a complete picture. NAFCU stated that the CFPB is incorrectly characterizing the narratives submitted online as statistically relevant “trends and analyses.”Subramanian concluded the letter by stating, “NAFCU appreciates the opportunity to share our thoughts on how the CFPB can improve the transparency and efficiency of the Consumer Complaint Narrative Database. As the Bureau continues its study of the student loan servicing market, NAFCU and our members hope to be a resource for CFPB staff to share our insights and experiences in the student lending markets.”Click here to view a complete copy of the letter.(Editor’s Note: The Five Star Institute and Black Knight Financial Services published a study in April adding more context to the complaints received in the CFPB’s database.

New Delhi: The Perth Test between India and Australia had plenty of action. It featured a war of words between the skippers of both the sides, Virat Kohli and Tim Paine. The confrontation was serious enough to warrant the intervention of umpire Chris Gaffaney. The tussle between Kohli and Paine came on the third day of the Test when India went for a huge caught-behind appeal in the final over of the day. The stump microphones picked up Kohli saying, “If he messes it up, it’s 2-0”. Paine promptly replied: “You’ve got to bat first, big head”. On the fourth day, Kohli and Paine almost had a physical contact and when the Australian skipper was dismissed, Kohli waved him goodbye and raised a thumbs up.After Australia won the match, both captains shook hands but one could spot a sense of frostiness in Kohli’s gesture. Mitchell Johnson, the former Australia pacer, has criticised the behavior of the Indian captain. “At the end of the match, you should be able to look each other in the eyes, shake hands and say ‘great contest. Virat Kohli could not do that with Tim Paine, shaking the Australian captain’s hand but barely making eye contact with him. To me, that is disrespectful. Kohli gets away with more than most cricketers simply because he is Virat Kohli and he gets placed on a pedestal but this Test left the Indian captain looking silly,” Johnson wrote in a column for Fox Sports.Read More | India lose Perth Test to ‘weakest’ Australia by 146 runsThe nature of the confrontation between Paine and Kohli forced the BCCI to issue a statement rubbishing media reports in Australia which claimed that Kohli had bragged about being the best batsman in the world while ridiculing Paine as a “stand-in captain”. However, Johnson said Kohli had contradicted himself by his behavior in the Perth Test.Read More | On This Day – Sachin Tendulkar hits 50th Test century“Kohli said he was a changed person – that he was coming in with a different attitude to last time and wasn’t going to initiate anything. What we saw this Test says otherwise. From my experiences with him and what I am seeing as an observer now, not much has changed. It was disappointing and that is not the only area where he let himself down,” Johnson said.Before the start of the series, Kohli had said he did not feel the need to get into a confrontation with the opposition and that he had made several mistakes in past tours when he would get involved in confrontation with the opposition. The series between India and Australia is level at 1-1 and the third Test will be played on Boxing Day in Melbourne.
