Consumers Invited to Raise Their Voices at the Consumer Empowerment Conference and Expo on November 21, 2009 in Hollywood, FL

Hollywood, FL, Nov. 9, 2009- Don’t let the big banks dominate the conversation any longer; join with consumers and advocates at the Consumer Empowerment Conference and Expo on November 21st and raise your voice against abusive and predatory lending practices.

“We can’t pick up a newspaper or turn on the radio or the TV these days without hearing yet another story about fraud, identity theft, spiking credit card interest rates, or foreclosure nightmares,” says Denise Richardson, co-host of the event. “The current financial crisis and mortgage industry meltdown has affected this entire nation, but the state of Florida is one of the hardest hit. Now, we finally have a way to do something about it.”

The upcoming event, to be held at the Crowne Plaza in Hollywood Florida, will be hosted by Americans for Fairness in Lending (AFFIL) and Denise Richardson on Saturday, November 21st, 2009 from 1-5 pm. It is free to the public.
“Whether you have questions about fair lending practices, want to know what’s being done about abusive credit card interest rates, or need advice about how to deal with identity theft, this event is for you,” says Richardson. Advocates on site will also be speaking on panels, talking with consumers at tables, and answering questions about credit scores and reports, mortgages, short term loans, medical debt, debt collection, and will be providing information about current legislation that is furthering the fight to create a fair lending system.

Sarah Byrnes, Director of AFFIL says “It is our hope that by attending this event, even more consumers can become part of the solution in the fight against predatory lending and help shine the spotlight on the problems caused by abusive loan products. By working together, we can raise the volume on our collective outrage and the need for better consumer protections.”

This event will give consumers a unique opportunity to interact face-to-face with local and national advocates who are working to reform the lending industry. It’s a chance for people to connect over the issues, speak one on one with consumer attorneys and advocates on issues that matter most to them, and to find new ways to work toward a common goal: a more fair financial system for all.

Confirmed participants include:
Americans for Fairness in Lending
Credit Union Strategic Planning and American Debt Relief Challenge
Florida AARP

The National Consumer Empowerment Conference and Expo this past weekend in Florida was a wonderful event, and I was so happy to be a part of it. I met some wonderful people, heard some inspiring stories, and made friendships and partnerships that I hope will last a lifetime. In the following weeks I will share some of the stories of the people from this event with you.


This entire event started off as an idea in the head of one inspirational woman, Denise Richardson. Denise took on a battle with a large bank in order to fix the accounting errors and credit problems that they created for her. Her story is truly an inspiration and shows that one person can stand up and make a difference, and that as consumers we need to look out for ourselves because the people we trust with our money, the banks, are not.


While my story is different from Denise's, I do feel a common bond with her . . . fighting the bank for what is right! We were both told that we could not take on the "big bad bank", and we were both told by the bank employees not to worry, and we both learned over the years that what the bank tells you and what they actually do are not always the same thing. We have both gone from being the average woman to someone who is willing to stand up and speak . . . and sometimes yell . . . for the rights of the consumer. Denise is someone I respect, trust and motivates me to do even more in my work in fighting scams.


I would strongly encourage you to read Denise's book, Give Me Back My Credit! which can be purchased here
