God Gazarov, 27, settled his lawsuit against Equifax for failing to provide him and a lender with his credit report, stating they couldn’t give him a credit report because they couldn’t process his name as God, according to New York Daily News (http://bit.ly/1FcZ4JS).
Gazarov claims Equifax told him to consider changing his name to remedy the situation when in 2013, he was denied a car loan for an Infiniti car because of the lack of a report. Gazarov eventually bought a Honda at a high rate of interest due to having a credit score of “9002,”basically meaning he had no credit.
Gazarov’s credit rating has been adjusted and he will also receive a confidential monetary settlement.
Gazarov said God happens to be a common name in Russia, and that he is actually named after his grandfather and that it had to be translated from Russian and Hebrew to into English.
