H2587: EXTENSION OF CREDIT; IDENTITY THEFT

Whether or not a credit issuer uses a consumer credit report, it must take "reasonable steps" (defined) to verify the identity of a consumer before extending credit to the consumer. Credit shall not be extended to anyone who has placed a security freeze with a credit reporting agency or for whom the creditor has received a police report stating the consumer is a victim of identity theft. If a consumer proves by a preponderance of evidence that a creditor extended credit in violation of this act, a court may properly infer that someone other than the consumer had applied for and secured the benefits of the extension of credit. Further, acts in violation of this act are unlawful and may be enforced through private action and by the attorney general. AS SIGNED BY GOVERNOR.
