SubscriberWise Empowers U.S. Consumers with FICO Scores and Credit Information
TAMPA, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
SubscriberWise, the nation's largest issuing consumer reporting agency
for the communications industry, announced that consumers around the
country benefit from FICO scores and other key information contained in
federally compliant pricing notifications created by the issuing CRA.
"On average, SubscriberWise technology touches a U.S. consumer every
minute of every hour of every day," said David Howe, president of
SubscriberWise. "And every month SubscriberWise member operators
generate tens of thousands of service applications that result in
thousands of federally compliant consumer notifications. These
notifications empower and inform consumers with critical information
about their credit."
"The notifications are called Risk-Base Pricing (RBP) notices,"
continued Howe. "Most include a genuine FICO score (approximately 80
percent of applicants to communications operators generate a FICO score
because they have sufficient information contained in their consumer
file to generate a crdit score) along with key factors that impact the
calculation of the score. For consumers who are non-scorable at the time
their application is processed, there's a similar notice that's
provided. However, every RBP notice includes important information about
a consumer credit report and informs consumers how they can obtain a
copy of their report," concluded Howe.
