Consumers Invited to Raise their Voices at Consumer Empowerment Conference and Expo in Florida

Don’t let the big banks dominate the conversation any longer; join with consumers and advocates at the Consumer Empowerment Conference and Expo on November 21st in Hollywood, FL and raise your voice against abusive and predatory lending practices.


PRLog (Press Release) – Nov 12, 2009 – “We can’t pick up a newspaper or turn on the radio or the TV these days without hearing yet another story about fraud, identity theft, spiking credit card interest rates, or foreclosure nightmares,” says Denise Richardson, co-host of the event. “The current financial crisis and mortgage industry meltdown has affected this entire nation, but the state of Florida is one of the hardest hit. Now, we finally have a way to do something about it.”

The upcoming event, to be held at the Crowne Plaza in Hollywood Florida, will be hosted by Americans for Fairness in Lending (AFFIL) and Denise Richardson on Saturday, November 21st, 2009 from 1-5 pm. It is free to the public.

“Whether you have questions about fair lending practices, want to know what’s being done about abusive credit card interest rates, or need advice about how to deal with identity theft, this event is for you,” says Richardson. Advocates on site will also be speaking on panels, talking with consumers at tables, and answering questions about credit scores and reports, mortgages, short term loans, medical debt, debt collection, and will be providing information about current legislation that is furthering the fight to create a fair lending system.

Sarah Byrnes, Director of AFFIL says “It is our hope that by attending this event, even more consumers can become part of the solution in the fight against predatory lending and help shine the spotlight on the problems caused by abusive loan products. By working together, we can raise the volume on our collective outrage and the need for better consumer protections.”

This event will give consumers a unique opportunity to interact face-to-face with local and national advocates who are working to reform the lending industry. It’s a chance for people to connect over the issues, speak one on one with consumer attorneys and advocates on issues that matter most to them, and to find new ways to work toward a common goal: a more fair financial system for all.

Americans for Fairness in Lending

Yes Big Mac we will be there! But I’m not from MSF. I’m just worried out of my mind! I looked up- the Americans for Fairness in Lending (AFFIL) website and it looks like they are trying to sell something rather than help folks like us who are facing foreclosure and bankruptcy! The problem is yes we do have over $30,000 in equity in our home but it looks like we may lose it! My brother says going bankrupt is a extremely bad idea but we can’t see any other way to save our home and our equity!  No way we can afford a lawyer and we are 4 months behind on our loan payments. PLUS this has destroyed our credit!

Big Mac
Do you live near where the event will be held?

If you don't mind if I ask, why are you behind? and what mortgage company? Have you checked out modifaction?

I am seeing too many business going under and laying off people. My friend worked at his job for 14 years, the company went under, he was with out a job for close to a year, he just got a new job a few months ago and now this company is talking about closing, they have been around for 40 years. It's VERY sad.
