The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRS) handles consumer complaints about state-chartered banks and trust companies, which are members of the Federal Reserve System. The FRS is a centralized banking system under the Board with supervisory power over twelve Federal Reserve Banks designed to regulate banking and the economy by controlling the supply of money and credit. Written complaints and documentation should be mailed to Customer Relations Division of the bank.
