MBSi Capital Busts Repossession Industry Compliance Myths in New Video
PHILADELPHIA (January 23, 2014) -- A new video from MBSi Capital Corp., in collaboration with CRIResource.com, puts to rest some grave misconceptions about how the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is engaging the repossession industry.
The video shares details of a meeting that took place late last year between Greg Ward, from MBSi's Compliance Made Easy product, and seven representatives from the CFPB, at the agency's headquarters in Washington, D.C. Like many in the industry, Greg went into the meeting expecting to hear from the CFPB how intensely it plans to investigate the repossession industry, But what he heard surprised him, and will likely surprise everyone else in the repossession industry as well.
"It quickly became clear that most of what I had learned about governance from the CFPB, at the very least, is an overreaction to the regulatory climate the financial institutions are facing or, at the very most, a purposely contrived scare tactic to support million-dollar revenue models," Ward said. "Much of what I had read and heard about the CFPB's so-called regulation of the repossession agency are either made up or exaggerated. In fact, they barely even know who we are."
Also included in the video is a set of guidelines that repossession agents can use to make sure that, if and when the CFPB or another regulatory agency comes knocking on their door, they will be ready. Those guidelines offer simple, down-to-earth instructions that repossession agencies can implement quickly and easily and still ensure they will be ready for anything that a client or regulator will inquire about.
