Equifax Misquoted: Credit Reports Safe, We Think

Nick Fishman

We heard yesterday, but have not been able to confirm that Equifax was misquoted in an article written by Credit.com earlier this week.  The article said that Equifax decided to stop selling pre-employment credit reports.  It is our understanding that the following statement was meant to convey that they do not include credit scores on their credit reports (big news flash, not!), “Atlanta-based Equifax is no longer selling credit reports to employers for the purposes of pre-employment screening, according to Tim Klein, a company spokesperson who revealed the information in an interview with the Dallas Morning News.”
