During the webinar "Understanding and Using Credit Scores, Adverse Action Notices, & FCRA/FACTA Compliance", which is scheduled for February 11, 2015 at 2:00 pm, we will examine your compliance obligations when using Credit Scoring Models. Here are some questions we will address; If we are we required to give out the credit scores to our customers through our Adverse Action Notices and our Risk Based Pricing Notices which methods/models are best for you? Can a consumer or a Financial Intuition legally improve the FICO score, and if so, what improvements have the greatest impact? How does data (positive and negative) affect/effect scoring models? How do we avoid disparate treatment when using scoring models? How can we use credit scores to streamline the lending and checking account decision process? Can we get scores on Commercial Credit Applications? Is 650 still the base lending threshold we should be using? Also in this webinar, Greg Souther, Owner of Greg Souther Consulting and Training, will address the topic of which rules require privacy of customer information. This informative session is designed for your CEO, CFO, Directors, President, Managers, Branch & Assistant Managers, Credit Analyst, Commercial & Consumer Lenders, Compliance & Risk Officers, Collection Staff, Human Resource Trainers, and anyone responsible for establishing & maintaining credit policy & procedures.
