about this, executive director for national consumers league. i have to imagine sally peoplu complain, you know about i can't get the banks to do this, that type of thing, what is your organization's thought on this? it is in its early stages what do you think? >> i think it is really important we be able to look and see how these financial institutions banks and credit card companies are responding when consumers have problems. we are all consumers we have all had a problem from time to time some of them bigger than others people have mortgages that they can't get resolved, right now the bureau is doing something i think it is really important, and they are going to shine a 1309 light on those -- spotlight on those companies responding well. we will know who is to esrthese complaintwho isn't and who is slow on the up take and if it working right it is government at its best because they are going to go to bat for you the consumers and
9:16 am
get institutions to be responsive. now, we just want to make clear too, the organization or who it is that is running this data base it is n organization. >> no. >> it is the consumer financial protection bureau, set up under the todd frank bill by congress and it is by statue setting up this data base and opening up this information to the public. i think for those companies doing a good job it will be a great thing for companies dragging their heels a little bit it won't be so -- such a happy situation, but they will get the information out there, quicker and fainformation out t quicker and faster, and resolve these complaints, if they know, that the public is keeping an eye on what is happening and what they are doing. >> now again i know this is a very new tool that just came out, and the website itself
9:17 am
they call it a beta version it is in its testing stannels they have just now started gatt -- stages they have just started gathering credit card company information about that, when you were looking at it what is it you found so far, just from you know the time they just decided june 1st to make them public so they have about 137 complaints, capital one is coming up with more complaints than some other companies some were in the 30s but a lot of the banks and credit card companies are being listed as having complaints and so, i think, what is going to happen, is that they are going to move very quickly to resolve them because the faster they do that, the more they will be perceived as being responsive to consumers. that is a good thing. >> the other thing, there is a timeline on this too, as to how quickly they are supposed to
9:18 am
respond so can't just hang out and not be addressed. >> that's right. it is critical they have 15 days to respond s 60 days, under the rules of the bureau, to actually try to resolve the complaint and then consumers can come back and say i wasn't satisfied with the resolution. we as consumers haven't had an avenue for redress with these financial issues whether it is your mortgage, or your bank accounts or your credit card bill for the first time, you know hats off to the burrow for setting up a mechanism that requires these companies to provide a real response. >> and it just starts now with credit cards what they are taking a look at but they plan to expand this to morgang loans, student -- mortgage >> that's right they have jurisdiction over mortgages, student loan, credit cards, banking irregularities or problems people have with their banks. >> all right so a whole host of things people will be able to log on whatever the complaint
9:19 am
is whatever the complaint they have they will be able to log on and do that we want to let people have a link to that site now on our website myfoxdc.com get to that data base play around a bit i know right now it is a little bit maybe confusing since it is not fully up and running but, >> yeah, worth taking a look they do show you how to break down the various data points and you can see, zip codes, see which banks come up with the most complaints and it is a very useful tool i think, in the long run it will be helpful both to banks and financial institutions and consumers. >> all right, sally green burg thanks for coming in we appreciate it. >> over to you >> thank you very much. 19 minutes after the hour now, 80 degrees coming up next, a tsa pat down gone wrong. why a woman arrested for groping an airport security official, says it wasn't just retaliation. holly. well, tony, i was just sit ising here chatting with derek
