Kang v. Credit Bureau Connection, Inc.

Case No: 1:18-cv-01359




You are not being sued. A federal judge authorized this notice. It is not a solicitation.

A class action lawsuit was filed by Sung Gon Kang (“Plaintiff”) against Defendant Credit Bureau Connection, Inc. (“Defendant”). Plaintiff alleged that Defendant violated certain consumer protection laws when it prepared a consumer report about you that contained inaccurate information about someone else on the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (“OFAC list”).

Defendant provides automobile dealers with credit reports about potential buyers. You may have been the subject of a credit report provided by Defendant when you purchased or considered purchasing an automobile. Defendant’s records show that it prepared a credit report about you for a third party and that included a “Hit” with someone else on the OFAC list. Plaintiff alleges that Defendant’s matching procedures for people on the OFAC list violate the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and California Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act (“CCRAA”).
