Report Fraud, Waste, or Abuse
The OIG is responsible for preventing and detecting fraud and abuse in the programs and operations of the Board and the CFPB. The OIG operates a Hotline that serves as a resource for individuals to report suspected fraud, waste, abuse, or mismanagement. Individuals may report information to the Hotline by mail, telephone, fax, e-mail, or online form.
Anyone may report fraud, waste, abuse, or mismanagement related to the programs or operations of the Board or the CFPB by contacting the OIG Hotline. Examples of the types of activities to report include
The OIG is unable to intervene in or investigate individual consumer complaints against institutions or other entities supervised by the Board or the CFPB. For these complaints, please refer to information on consumer complaints against financial institutions.
We will not disclose the identity of an employee who comes forward with a complaint or information. In rare circumstances, however, disclosure may occur if it is unavoidable during the course of an investigation.
Additionally, Board and CFPB employees are protected from reprisals or retaliation for reporting a complaint or disclosing information to the OIG. Read more about whistleblower rights and protections.
Yes. Individuals may contact the OIG Hotline anonymously; however, knowing the individual's identity and contact information will help us in our efforts to pursue the individual's complaint.
Complaints to the OIG Hotline are reviewed by OIG analysts. If we have any questions regarding a complaint or if we require any additional information, we may contact the complainant. After reviewing a complaint, we may refer the matter to the appropriate component within the OIG, the Board, or the CFPB for additional action. Please note that the OIG cannot provide information regarding what action has been taken on any allegation reported to our office.
