Fraud vs. Consumer Complaints

Do not confuse the crime of fraud with a dispute that you may have with an institution or complaint you may want to file for example: complaints about delays in mortgage loan modifications, delayed customer payment, monetary disputes, policy cancellations and non-renewals. If you have a complaint or an inquiry not involving fraud please File a Complaint.
