CFPB launches website seeks YouTube videos
WASHINGTON (2/4/11)—The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on Thursday debuted its new website, www.consumerfinance.gov. The site includes a blog, background information on the bureau, and other resources, including a press release archive and a calendar detailing CFPB architect Elizabeth Warren’s upcoming schedule. Another feature of the site is a resource through which users can receive additional information on issues related to mortgages, credit cards, credit reports, bank accounts, and other financial services. Real stories from ordinary Americans that have experienced problems in the consumer credit market are also included on the site. The CFPB will accept suggestions from the general public through Twitter, YouTube, and its own homepage, and will respond to many of these suggestions via its own YouTube videos. The agency has sought out initial submissions through its own YouTube video, which features Warren and was shot by acclaimed director Ron Howard. Warren also discussed the future goals of the CFPB in a recent letter to Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas).
