NEW YORK (AP) - The government's consumer finance watchdog agency is launching an online database of complaints on credit cards.
The public can see what types of complaints people have filed against any bank that issues credit cards. They can also search complaints by ZIP code and see how banks responded. The database does not include personal information.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's database goes live Tuesday.
