Before Filing a ComplaintContact someone with authority at the company. Try speaking with the owner, president, or consumer complaint specialist to resolve the problem. When talking to the person, you should:
- Be courteous and stay calm.
- Be prepared to explain the problem - present as many facts as possible, provide dates and amounts paid or billed, and have
all supporting documentation.

When Our Office Receives a Completed Consumer Assistance Form
We will review the form and supporting documentation and open a case. If the company is within our regulatory authority, you will receive a letter informing you of the case number, and we will begin our investigation. The consumer assistance form and documentation you submit may be provided to the company for review. We are unable to determine up front how long it will take to investigate, but when our review is complete, we will advise you of the findings.
The Kansas Office of the State Bank Commissioner cannot act as your attorney or provide you with any legal advice. If you choose to pursue a lawsuit against a company, you will need to hire your own attorney. Your own attorney can investigate and may be able to take action on your behalf even if we determine this office is unable to assist you. Please remember the law may limit the time for legal action, and the cost of any private attorney would be your responsibility.
