Prev Article 7. - FAIR CREDIT REPORTINGNext


50-714.Requirements on users of consumer reports. (a) Whenever credit or insurance for personal, family or household purposes, or employment involving a consumer is denied or the charge for such credit or insurance is increased either wholly or partly because of information contained in a consumer report from a consumer reporting agency, the user of the consumer report shall so advise the consumer against whom such adverse action has been taken and supply the name and address of the consumer reporting agency making the report.

(b) Whenever credit for personal, family, or household purposes involving a consumer is denied or the charge for such credit is increased either wholly or partly because of information obtained from a person other than a consumer reporting agency bearing upon the consumer's credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living, the user of such information shall, within a reasonable period of time, upon the consumer's written request for the reasons for such adverse action received within sixty (60) days after learning of such adverse action, disclose the nature of the information to the consumer. The user of such information shall clearly and accurately disclose to the consumer the right to make such written request at the time such adverse action is communicated to the consumer.

(c) No person shall be held liable for any violation of this section if the person shows by a preponderance of the evidence that at the time of the alleged violation he or she maintained reasonable procedures to assure compliance with the provisions of subsections (a) and (b).
