- Bank account closures

WHAT IT IS USED FOR:
About 100,000,000 Americans have little or no credit history on file with the traditional credit bureaus. Yet many of these people are responsible consumers with steady incomes. The Connect Consumer Report allows businesses to pre-screen and evaluate often-overlooked potential customers. In doing so, your business can tap a huge potential market.
The Connect Consumer Report is used by many industries including retail finance (furniture, jewelry), rent-to-own finance, buy-here-pay-here auto finance, tenant screening and residential service screening (security alarms, water delivery, etc.)
