FDIC and CFPB take action to protect deposit insurance guarantee

This week the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the FDIC took action to “root out misrepresentation” of the FDIC logo by firms hoping that consumers will invest in their risky cryptocurrencies or other products that are not FDIC-insured bank deposits.
