FEDERAL RESERVE REPORT AFFIRMS IMPORTANCE OF DEBT COLLECTION IN THE CREDIT ECOSYSTEM
June 29, 2017 (Sacramento, CA) - The Federal Reserve Bank of New York published a report in May 2017 confirming the vital role of debt collection in the credit-based economy. The report, titled Access to Credit and Financial Health: Evaluating the Impact of Debt Collection, is based on data analytics between states with varying degrees of regulation. The analysis found that, "restricting collection activities leads to a decrease in access to credit across the full spectrum of borrowers and to a deterioration in indicators of financial health." A rise in delinquencies and a reduction in credit scores are among the negative outcomes resulting from restricted collection activities, the effects of which are "concentrated on individuals with the lowest credit scores."

PREPARED REMARKS OF CFPB DIRECTOR RICHARD CORDRAY AT THE AAFCS CONFERENCE
Thank you, Susan, for your kind introduction. And thank you to the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences for inviting me to speak at your conference. Most of you would not know it, but Susan and I have known each other for many years, dating back to our days working on financial education together in central Ohio - me as a county treasurer and she as a key figure in the OSU Extension program. Now look how far we have come! Perhaps needless to add, promoting financial capability in people of all ages has become a special passion for me over the years since then. On the local, state, and federal levels I have steadfastly advocated for the importance of providing financial education and resources to help people achieve their financial goals.

STATEMENT BY NEW YORK STATE INSPECTOR GENERAL CATHERINE LEAHY SCOTT ON THE ARREST AND ARRAIGNMENT TODAY OF JOSEPH CIFFA AND HIS CODEFENDANTS ON FEDERAL FRAUD CHARGES
"Through an elaborate fraud, the lead defendant in this case preyed on consumers with fear tactics meant to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars in debts that often were not even owed. Then he further preyed on taxpayers by hiding his six-figure income so he and his family could collect government health care benefits to which he was not entitled and which were meant for those truly in need. These brazen acts have been exposed and are being prosecuted because of a successful partnership between State and federal law enforcement agencies. I will continue to aggressively investigate these cases in order to protect New Yorkers from such fraud and abuse.
