Course Description

This program was recorded on December 23, 2020

Consumers’ unencrypted, non-public, personally-identifiable financial information (:NPI”) has no place on the Internet, yet it finds its way there through innocent indiligence by lenders. The intersection of state and federal laws has created a new trap for the lender, new remedies for the truly injured and a potential bonanza for the enterprising fraud. This lecture will survey the applicable federal redaction rules, some examples of state law equivalents, and how they are monetized by “consumers’ rights advocates” and ambitious lawyers.
