By the Division of Banks

To initiate the complaint process, an authorizing signature from the consumer is required. The Division is currently working to create an e-signature method of complaint submission, but at the present time, the Division can only obtain your signature via a mailed hardcopy of your complaint or via a faxed copy of your complaint. Click here for the complaint form to mail or fax to the Division. The Consumer Assistance Office will notify you when your complaint or question has been assigned to a consumer specialist.


Credit Card complaints are to be directed to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

The CFPB was established by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The CFPB conducts rule-making, and has supervision and enforcement for federal consumer financial protection laws.
