NerdWallet: Plenty of complaints about financial companies, but little oversight

The federal watchdog agency created to protect consumers is not regulating two of the country’s fastest-growing financial institutions despite receiving voluminous complaints about them, according to an analysis by NerdWallet.

Escaping scrutiny are Green Dot Corp. GDOT, +0.68% — which partners with Walmart, WMT, +1.02% Apple, AAPL, +1.52% Intuit INTU, -0.74% and more than 100,000 retailers — and Credit One Bank, which issues NASCAR credit cards.

A NerdWallet investigation found that many other businesses also are not subject to oversight by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau despite being the subjects of many complaints.
