On February 8, the FTC sent the CFPB a letter summarizing the FTC’s enforcement activities related to compliance with the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) and implementing Regulation B during 2015. The annual letter reviews the FTC’s responsibilities with regard to ECOA enforcement and education to most non-bank financial service providers. Highlights of the letter include, but are not limited to, (i) the FTC’s public workshop on the growing use of online lead generation in industries such as lending and education; (ii) the FTC’s  Federal Register Notice seeking comments on a proposed survey of consumers regarding their experiences in buying and financing automobiles at dealerships, over which the FTC has broad authority to enforce the FTC Act and ECOA; and (iii) updates to the FTC’s Mortgage Discrimination publication, which includes information about ECOA and warns consumers of illegal practices. Finally, the FTC emphasized that, since 2011, it has brought over 25 cases in the auto purchase and financing industry, “including those in a federal-state effort that yielded more than 200 actions for fraud, deception, and other illegal practices.”
