Florida Residents Benefit from Consumer Protection Page


Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/25/2011 --Florida residents are feeling the economic pinch as much as the rest of the country. In an effort to assist residents in learning about different financial options, has launched the Florida Consumer Protection page. As a trusted member of the loan industry for more than a decade, has become a valued resource for consumers that are interested in learning about financial matters and specifically the short-term loan industry.

“ strives continually to ensure consumer protection by providing the knowledge and resources necessary for consumers to make informed financial decisions,” says spokesperson Hanna Wellman. “The Consumer Resource pages are a wealth of information arming consumers with the knowledge necessary to preserve their rights and providing recourse to regulatory agencies capable of remedying fraudulent lending practices.”

Residents can view the Florida Consumer Protection page to learn more about the Florida Office of Financial Regulation which oversees all payday loans in the state. They will find contact information for the 10 offices located throughout the state as well as contact information for the Florida Attorney General. There is also a link to the complaint form which can be filled out and submitted online.
