Credit Score Modeling Expert in Risk Management
A credit score modeling expert was requested for a consumer class action alleging failure to follow reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy of information in consumer reports, as required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act. During the class period the defendant, a national consumer credit reporting agency, allowed one of its subscribers to withhold the credit limits on its customers’ credit card accounts. The class alleged the defendant's modeling analytics methodology for credit scoring potentially made it appear that credit card customers had used more of their available credit than was actually the case, thus lowering the scores upon which credit risk management professionals base decisions.
