The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) expects all entities obtaining consumer authorizations for pre-authorized electronic fund transfers (EFTs) to comply with the Electronic Fund Transfer Act and Regulation E, it reminded in a compliance bulletin issued this week. Pre-authorized EFTs refer to an electronic funds transfer authorized in advance to recur at substantially regular intervals.Under federal law, consumers have the right to stop automatic debits from their accounts and can revoke authorization.Regulation E requires that pre-authorized EFTs from a consumer’s account be authorized “only by a writing signed or similarly authenticated by the consumer.” It also required that entities that obtain authorizations must provide a copy of the terms to the consumer, in paper form or electronically.When practical, the bureau encourages entities obtaining consumer authorizations for pre-authorized EFTs to provide the copy of the authorization to the consumer before the first pre-authorized EFT is initiated.The CFPB also released its monthly complaint snapshot this week, focusing on financial institution accounts or services, as well as consumer complaints from Connecticut. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Banksia Ave had interest from buyers nationally, as well as locals, and eight registered to bid on the day.The auction started with a relatively low bid of $1.35 million but that was quickly countered with by $1.65 million bid from another party. Bidding then began to really heat up.These two buying groups bid against each other in a mixture of small and large bids. The property was announced on the market around $1.9 million and bidding continued to escalate up and over $2 milliob before finally settling and selling for $2.01 million.With the auction as hot as the climate and the hundred plus crowd all cheering the outcome, I reflected on the new energy around these homes and I genuinely hope this is a sign of things to come.

Residents of Florida could soon join those of many other states across the country that are getting a new boost in their unemployment benefits.That’s because Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Wednesday that the state is about to apply to for the federal Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) program.It covers people who are already eligible for Reemployment Assistance on or after August 1. The benefit would be $300 per week, in addition to other benefits claimants may already be receiving.The previous federal assistance program, which provided $600 per week to unemployed individuals who lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic, expired July 31 and was not renewed or extended by Congress.“On behalf of Floridians who are continuing to face challenges finding employment, I would like to thank President Trump for providing additional funding while they get back on their feet,” according to Gov. DeSantis. “We appreciate the opportunity to provide this temporary assistance through the Lost Wages Assistance program.”In order to be eligible for the new benefit when the state obtains federal approval, claimants must be receiving at least $100 each week from an approved Reemployment Assistance program.
