Credit Card Report on Marketplace and More

Last week we released our report on credit card companies forcing consumers into binding mandatory arbitration and interest has been very high.

Listen to a short piece on American Public Media's program, Marketplace, or you can read more on The Consumerist where Ben Popken blogged about what consumers are up against, as did Elizabeth Warren on TPM Cafe.  We are really pleased to have the word spread so that together we can end the predatory practice of mandatory arbitration. 

You can download The Arbitration Trap: How Credit Card Companies Ensnare Consumers here.  Also, learn what you can do to protect yourself and tell Congress to stand up for consumers.
