Retail Banking Expert in FCRA Compliance
A retail banking expert familiar with Fair Credit Reporting Act compliance was needed for a case alleging breach of fiduciary duty and willful negligence. Plaintiff alleged credit cards were fraudulently issued in his name, and when he reported the fraud to the retail banking institution that issued the cards it failed to properly investigate the allegation or to correctly report the situation to a consumer reporting agency. Plaintiff claimed the defendant's conduct was a willful violation of retail banking regulations, specifically the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, and of the common law tort of defamation.
