The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released a report Thursday on collection enforcement actions it took in 2013 and discussing the 30,000 consumer complaints it has received about collections since it began accepting them last July.

The CFPB pursued two collection enforcement actions last year. It sued online loan servicer, CashCall Inc., its owner, its subsidiary and its affiliate, for collecting money on loans that were legally invalid. It also ordered payday lender, Cash America International Inc., to refund up to $14 million to consumers for robosigning court documents in collection lawsuits.
