- FTC’s proposed telemarketing rules
- Third-party oversight and third-party payment processor considerations
- Implementing the final FinCEN prepaid access rule, and monitoring AML and fraud
- The continued evolution of money transmitter statutes and controversial escheat laws
Panel topics will include:
- What acts or practices by third parties does CFPB consider to be abusive?
- Identifying the prongs; CFPB supervision of activities under its authority; what matters are now of significant concern to the CFPB?; what constitutes fairness, transparency, and competitiveness?
- Service provider liability
- Supervisory standards for banks regarding oversight of third parties
- Understanding vicarious liability
- Prepaid programs with non-traditional third parties (insurance, healthcare, etc.)
