If It Sounds Too Good To Be True, It Is.
Predatory lending is a growing concern in New York City and nationally, one that is disproportionally affecting immigrant New Yorkers and those with low incomes who are already struggling to make ends meet. Combating predatory lending, beginning with the used car industry, is a strategic priority of DCA.

Ads direct consumers to come to DCA for consumer protection tips, complaint mediation, or free financial counseling.
