    • A.

      The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)

    • B.

      The Department of Financial Institutions (DFI)

    • C.

      Federal Trade Commission (FTC)

    Correct Answer
    A. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The Dodd-Frank and Consumer Protection Act established this federal agency to regulate and enforce consumer financial laws. The CFPB's main goal is to protect consumers by promoting fair and transparent practices in the financial industry.

The agency also provides educational resources and handles consumer complaints related to financial products and services.

  • 2. 

    A Check City employee may decline a loan applicant if the customer applying for the loan is receiving public assistance?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is illegal to decline a loan applicant solely based on the fact that they are receiving public assistance. Discrimination based on someone's source of income is prohibited by fair lending laws. Loan decisions should be based on the applicant's ability to repay the loan, creditworthiness, and other relevant factors, rather than their participation in public assistance programs.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is laws that protect information collected by consumer reporting agencies (i.e. CoreLogic/Teletrack, CL Verify, Experian, TransUnion & Equifax) which are used for credit evaluation?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is indeed a set of laws that protect the information collected by consumer reporting agencies. These agencies, such as CoreLogic/Teletrack, CL Verify, Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax, gather data that is used for credit evaluation purposes. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately reflects this relationship between the FCRA and consumer reporting agencies.

    When a consumer's loan application is denied by Check City, the company is obligated to provide the customer with an Adverse Action Notice. This document informs the consumer of the specific reasons why their application was denied and provides them with information on how to request a free copy of their credit report. Additionally, the Privacy Policy is also provided to ensure that the customer understands how their personal information will be handled and protected by Check City.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer is that the Truth-in-Lending Act (TILA) requires that the customer receive information about the loan terms and cost of a credit transaction as an Annual Percentage Rate (APR), not a Weekly Percentage Rate (WPR). The APR is a standardized way of expressing the cost of credit over a year, making it easier for consumers to compare different loan offers.

    Adverse Action refers to the action taken by a lender or creditor when they deny credit to a customer.

    Correct Answer
    C. Paying off a payday loan early with a money order
    Explanation
    Paying off a payday loan early with a money order is not an example of an Electronic Funds Transfer because it involves the use of a physical money order instead of an electronic transfer of funds. Electronic Funds Transfer refers to the electronic movement of money from one account to another, such as making a payment through a remote banking program, sending a wire transfer, or using a debit card for a purchase.

    Pretexting occurs when an individual texts another individual and asks them to send money?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Pretexting is a form of social engineering where an attacker deceives someone into providing sensitive information or performing certain actions. It typically involves the attacker impersonating someone else or creating a false identity to gain the target's trust. In this scenario, pretexting would involve the attacker texting the individual and using a false pretense to trick them into sending money. However, the statement suggests that pretexting occurs when someone texts another person and asks for money, which is not an accurate description of pretexting. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Money laundering does not expose the source of illegal proceeds. In fact, money laundering is the process of making illegally obtained money appear legal by hiding its true source. It involves various methods such as layering, where the money is moved through different accounts and transactions to make it difficult to trace back to its origin. The purpose of money laundering is to make the illicit funds appear legitimate, making it harder for law enforcement agencies to track and seize them. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

The adverse action notice must include the credit score used in the decision-making process, as well as the name and contact information of the credit reporting agency that provided the report. Failure to provide this information would be a violation of the FCRA.

UDAAP prohibits financial institutions from engaging in any unfair, deceptive, or abusive practices that may harm consumers. The advertisement may contain false or misleading information, making it a violation of UDAAP. The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) is related to anti-money laundering regulations, the Military Lending Act (MLA) protects military personnel from predatory lending practices, and the Federal Truth and Advertising Commission (FTAC) does not exist.
