Group Letter To Congress On Credit Scoring

Letter from U.S. PIRG and other groups making it clear that their general letter on credit scoring competition, sent to Federal Housing Finance Agency director Mel Watt in 2014, did not mean that they supported inclusion of Section 310, a credit scoring amendment backed by the Big 3 credit bureaus, into S2155, the sweeping bank deregulation package in 2018, nor that it meant they supported the bill itself, which they all oppose.

Letter to FTC and CFPB Re Experian Credit Freeze Security Issue

50 state and national consumer, civil rights, military family, faith and other groups sent a letter to the heads of the FTC and CFPB asking them to investigate an issue at the credit bureau Experian (which appears now to be fixed) which apparently let anyone obtain the secret PIN numbers for consumers to temporarily lift their credit freezes by answering "none of the above" to security questions. We called for an investigation and robust penalties if warranted and urged consumers to change their PINs.
