NEW YORK (AP) — A Brooklyn man claims that a credit-reporting agency falsely reported he had no financial history because his first name is God.
According to the New York Post (http://bit.ly/1evP6XW ), God Gazarov says in a lawsuit that Equifax has refused to correct its system to recognize his name as legitimate.
He says an Equifax customer-service representative even suggested that he change his name to resolve the issue.
Gazanov is a Russian native who is named after his grandfather.
The 26 year old owns a Brighton Beach jewelry store and is a graduate of Brooklyn College.
He says he has high scores with two other major credit agencies.
The Post says Equifax did not return calls or emails seeking comment.
