BOSTON (3/18/11)--Massachusetts Commissioner of Banks David J. Cotney asked credit unions and banks to review their deposit advertising to make sure that they are providing a “full and fair disclosure of all material terms of an offer, clearly and conspicuously,” in a letter dated March 8. He reminded managers of financial institutions that they must be in compliance with the Truth in Savings Law, whose purpose is to “allow a consumer to make meaningful comparisons among institutions on similar products,” according to the Massachusetts Credit Union League (e-Weekly March 8). Cotney also cited the state’s consumer protection statute chapter 93A, which protects consumers from unfair and deceptive practices. The letter provides specific examples.
