The FDIC issued a new series of letters demanding four nonbank entities cease making false or misleading representations about deposit insurance.

Details: The FDIC demanded that Bodega Importadora de Pallets, Money Avenue LLC, and OKCoin USA Inc. take immediate corrective action to address these false or misleading statements.

Background: The letters are the latest in a series of FDIC actions to prevent nonbanks from misleading consumers on deposit insurance. In addition to its cease-and-desist letter, the agency last year issued:

  • A consumer fact sheet addressing misrepresentations and misconceptions about crypto and deposit insurance.

  • An advisory reminding banks dealing with crypto companies to confirm and monitor that these companies do not misrepresent deposit insurance.
