Effort aims to protect consumers and financial institutions from fake check scams.
January 4, 2011
The New York State Consumer Protection Board joined with the Credit Union Association of New York and others to announce the start of a new, innovative program to protect consumers and financial institutions from fake check scams.
NCUA Chair Rick Metsger told CUNA that the agency has begun the process of consulting industry practitioners to assist in the transition as credit unions work to implement the new current expected credit loss accounting standard.
CUNA’s inaugural Fair Lending Workshop took place last week in Denver, leading to valuable discussions on compliance with the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Housing Act, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act and more.
