On May 7, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York announced a joint law enforcement effort in the U.S. District of New York involving a debt-settlement business and its principals. This marks the first time that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has brought criminal charges stemming from a CFPB investigation. This engaging webcast program will highlight the signifcance of this joint enforcement effort and its implications: 

  • The CFPB will share information with federal criminal prosecutors
  • The DOJ will act on referrals that it receives from the CFPB
  • The CFPB and DOJ have prioritized collaboration
  • The CFPB's invetigative fact finding may yield evidence for a criminal case brought by the DOJ
