There's a man named God and he lives, no, not "upstairs," but rather, in Brooklyn, N.Y. However, credit agency Equifax will not acknowledge him as a real person. God Gazarov is now suing the company.
For two years Equifax has "falsely report[ed] him as having no financial security because their system rejects his first name," reports the New York Post. "The owner of a Brighton Beach jewelry store and a graduate of Brooklyn College, Gazarov, 26, said an Equifax customer-service representative had the gall to suggest that he change his first name to resolve the issue."
Other credit reports by TransUnion and Experian have rated Gazarov over 720 for his line of credit. Due to Equifax, however, he has lost loan opportunities. The lawsuit is reportedly Gazarov's last resort attempt to get in Equifax's system.
