Generally our bank does not report negative information. We also do not obtain credit scores (but we do get credit *reports*). We also use chexsystems to open accounts.

We previously had not reported closed accounts to Chexsystems. Well recently they informed us that part of our agreement with them required us to do so. So, if and when we start doing this, what other obligations do we have under FCRA (or any other reg that I"m missing). Do we have to disclose that anywhere in the initial privacy notice?

Any advice/help is appreciated.

Just curious why you wouldn't report?

Just as you're relying on other financial institutions to report, we are relying on you as well. Otherwise it's worthless.

Your guess is as good as mine--this was a decision made above my level. Probably got a few disputes and decided it wasn't worth dealing with.

Does anyone know if reporting closed accounts to chexsystems would require a negative information sharing notice?

Those silly senior supervisors that have no idea what's happening on the front, end, LOL.

I just hope you don't become the bank that's known for not reporting to CS.

No.

shall provide a notice of such furnishing of negative
information, in writing, to the customer.
