The Commercial Finance Coalition Applauds Actions by the Federal Trade Commission and New York State to Thwart Bad Actors in Business Lending
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the office of New York State Attorney General Letitia James have filed formal actions against two small business financing companies for allegedly using egregious and deceptive tactics to seize assets from small businesses, non-profits, religious organizations, and medical offices.
“The Commercial Finance Coalition whole-heartedly applauds the efforts of the FTC and Attorney General James. As a coalition of responsible financial services companies committed to funding small businesses, the CFC believes there should be zero tolerance for bad actors and deceptive practices in our industry,” said Executive Director Dan Gans.
Gans added, “Hopefully this will serve as a warning to all companies in the business finance space to serve merchants through best practices centered on respect and integrity in compliance with state and federal law.”
The CFC is a not-for-profit alliance of innovative financial technology companies that are working together to deploy capital to help small and mid sized businesses grow.
