The New Hampshire Banking Department is committed to protecting the public’s interest through professional supervision of the financial services we regulate. Our vision is to be an innovative and exemplary leader in financial services regulation.
The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) urges consumers to:
- Monitor your accounts for unauthorized charges.
- Alert your bank or card provider immediately if fraud is suspected.
- Follow up with your bank or card provider and keep records.
- Avoid scams that ask for personal information via email or by phone.
The complete consumer advisory is available on their website.
The Banking Department and New Hampshire community banks recently participated in a national survey of more than 1,000 community bankers. The survey provides groundbreaking insights and key data on how community banks are responding to opportunities and challenges stemming from changing market and regulatory conditions, including new mortgage regulations, community banks’ product and service offerings, and major community bank competitors. The survey and research was developed by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) and the Federal Reserve. CSBS has made the national and state-by-state survey results available on this web page.
