    We will review, E-OSCAR (Electronic-Online Solution for Complete and Accurate Reporting), pros and cons of using METRO vs METRO-2 format, and special comment reporting codes. Also, we will discuss if you should report to more than one NCRA, and why you have to run quality checks on that data to make sure your trade lines are reporting accurately to stay in compliance.

    Overview

    Whether you report to one or all four of the National Credit Reporting Agencies (NCRA), you are required to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair & Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) amendment as well as the new tougher Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) standards. It's not what you know that will hurt you-it's re-polluting inaccurate data on the consumer's file  that will get you into (more than) hot water.
