Quicken Loans' Super Bowl ad stirs controversy

CBA SmartBrief | Feb 09, 2016

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and others have used Twitter to criticize Quicken Loans' Super Bowl ad, which promotes an eight-minute decision from subsidiary Rocket Mortgage. The CFPB does not reference the company but says, "When it comes to #mortgages, take your time, ask questions and #knowbeforeyouowe." Quicken has defended the ad, saying only qualified homebuyers can obtain loans. Yahoo (02/08) National Mortgage Professional (02/08)
