The Office of the Commissioner of Financial Regulation
("Commissioner") does not regulate
most credit card companies, or the banks that issue them.
Should you have a complaint about your credit card company,
we suggest that you contact the credit card company first
to try to resolve the matter. If you are unable to resolve
your issue, however, you may file a complaint with the credit
card company and its regulator. Additional consumer resources
include the Office
of the Maryland Attorney General Consumer Protection Division
and the Better
Business Bureau. Additionally, the Consumer Financial
Protection Bureau (CFPB) takes complaints through the CFPB website,
and through a toll-free number 1-855-411-2372.
Please see the Advisory for more information.

of the Commissioner involve state chartered banks and state
