Banking and Credit

Almost every customer interacts with banks, whether directly or indirectly, on a regular basis. An account with a bank or a credit union is necessary to conduct most business, and opening a credit card can help you build credit history. Given that banking is so important to a functioning economy, banking regulations have been enacted to help protect consumers from fraud or other acts banks may perform in bad faith. FindLaw's Banking and Credit section provides information and resources related to consumer protection in the area of banking. In this section, you can find articles on lowering bank fees, the truth in lending disclosures, and how to file a consumer complaint about a bank. There are also helpful articles on how consumer credit works, managing your credit score, and rebuilding credit.
