On February 10, the FTC released a letter it recently submitted to the Federal Reserve Board (FRB) that reviews the FTC’s efforts in 2011 to enforce certain consumer financial services laws. The information provided in the letter will be used by the FRB in its 2011 Annual Report to Congress. In addition to reviewing past activity, the letter also outlines the FTC’s plans to exercise new authorities provided by the Dodd-Frank Act, including new or enhanced authority with regard to payment cards, motor vehicles, and mortgage disclosures.
