Informative Research Launches Credit Score Verifier
GROVE, Calif. -- (Jan. 17, 2007) -- Informative Research
a leading provider of credit and mortgage-related information,
today introduced the Credit Score Verifier, a free fraud
prevention utility developed to reduce lender risk and loan
The Credit Score Verifier, a proprietary Web-based utility
developed by Informative Research to confirm the authenticity
of a credit score, enables a lender, with basic report number
information, to verify credit scores reported by any or
all of the repositories prior to undergoing the time and
expense of underwriting the file or ordering a back-up credit
"With the increasing popularity of non-traditional loan
types that allow for no documentation and stated incomes,
there is always the potential for fraudulent activity,"
said Penny Gonzalez, director of operations of Informative
Research. "This free service is a quick way to confirm that
a credit score is accurate, alleviating the lender of any
thought that the paper copy they hold in their hand may
have been altered."
The Credit Score Verifier, formerly called Credit Score
Validator, was enhanced and re-launched by Informative Research
as part of the company's ongoing effort to provide lenders
with the latest in fraud protection tools.
"We're constantly developing new technological solutions
to make conducting business easier for our customers," said
Berta Lipovac, assistant director information systems of
Informative Research. "We anticipate that our customers
will find this value-added service, convenient and easy
to use. It will save them valuable time and energy."
