Help Us Fight Reckless, Elitist, Overzealous Regulators And Keep Them From Taking Away Your Choices!

U.S. consumers across all economic sectors depend on legal, licensed tribal-owned small dollar lenders to cope with sporadic and unexpected changes in their financial status. A recent report from the FDIC shows that more than 50 million Americans, nearly 1 in every 5 households, rely on alternative financing services like those provided by tribal-owned lenders. 

But Now! Reckless regulators overseeing financial services in New York State, the FDIC, and Department of Justice have engaged in a "cease and desist" campaign against legal, licensed tribal-owned lenders. These tribal-owned lenders do not fall under New York State jurisdiction. This unwarranted "shut-down" of consumer services by elitist Federal regulators and the FDIC means a denial of access to much-needed credit and funding for the average American family.

The Need For Protection Is Clear. Courts across the U.S. have found in favor of tribal-owned lenders each and every time they have been challenged by the States. Consumers have voted with their hard earned dollars choosing to conduct business with legal, licensed tribal-owned payday advance lenders.

Help End Tribal Discrimination. In 1976, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that state tax and regulatory laws do not apply to Native American businesses on tribal lands. Why then have these reckless few government employees sought to trample on the rights of American Indians and their centuries old partnership with the federal government, as provided by the U.S. constitution?

Act Now to Protect Your Rights! Due process in our country suggests that each state respect all legal rights owed to American Indians. Common decency requires that regulators consider the harm they are doing to our neighbors! With your help, we can tell our elected leaders to put a stop to baseless attacks on tribal business and eliminate government fraud!

With your help, we can persuade our leaders to put a stop to baseless interuption of lawful businesses.

At Consumers For Choice, our main goals are to raise awareness to these denials of service and choice to Americans, generate 5 million messages by concerned consumers across the nation, and end a growing momentum that directly impacts Native American tribes BEFORE IT BEGINS!
