The "Red Flags Rule" was created by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for creditors and financial institutions to ensure they have and maintain an Identity Theft Prevention Program ("ITPP").

Although Red Flags Compliance is essential for staying in compliance, it can be challenging amidst the daily activities of running a business. Which is why CBC is the industry leader in helping our subscribers stay in compliance with our efficient and easy to use tools to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft, using consistent, safe, and practical business practices.

Mail-house Delivery

Easy Compliance Tracking

A lender must notify consumers when they have used information from a consumer's credit report to offer them credit with less favorable terms than the best terms available to other similar customers.

A Risk-Based Pricing/Score Disclosure notice must be provided to all applicants when a hard pull credit report is requested. The notice must be provided to the consumer as soon as practical after the credit report is pulled but prior to finalizing the transaction. This applies regardless if an offer of credit is issued or if a score is returned or not. Meaning cash buyers are still required to receive a notice if a credit report was pulled. It also applies to web-based electronic credit applicants if a credit report is pulled. Best practice is to hand the notice to the applicant at the time the bureau is pulled. In the event the applicant does not visit the dealership, the notice should be mailed immediately.

Adverse Action Notice and Fulfillment Service

Available with RBPN

If credit is not extended to the consumer, an Adverse Action letter must be produced within 30 days of the date the credit report is obtained. Notices are to be delivered in person, or by regular mail. Note that a customer accepting a counteroffer of credit, no matter how unfavorable, negates "adverse action" under the ECOA definition. If that doesn't happen, either because no lender approved the customer or the customer refused all credit offered, you have an adverse action situation.

CBC can ease the burden when it comes to your Adverse Action Notice fulfillment obligations. CBC customers save time and energy every month, by allowing CBC to send adverse action letters to the appropriate customers, on your dealership's behalf, to satisfy your compliance requirements.

On July 2015, the Department of Defense published a final rule to amend its regulation implementing the Military Lending Act which became effective on October 1, 2015.

To be covered in the Military Lending Act, a borrower must be serving on active duty in the military, or that individual's spouse or dependents. CBC is proud to work with customers who are committed to being in compliance with the MLA, and offers a variety of resources to help.

Adverse Action Letters

The range of state and federal regulations with which auto dealers must comply is overwhelming. Each paper document used in the auto dealership presents a security risk. Compliance documents can consume reams of paper. Printing, scanning, shredding, filing and storing is costly and resource intensive.

Today's businesses need to make sure that their document management strategies are in order. Depending on the document type, the amount of time you need to retain certain documents may vary. The best practice is to have an electronic document repository program in place. CBC provides an electronic storage program of all credit-related and other compliance documents. Credit applications are stored for a minimum of seven years along with and the generation of Safe-harbor Privacy Notices, Risk-Based Pricing notices, Adverse Action letters, and other essential compliance documents.

Depending on the type of consumer consent obtained, most documents can be stored electronically, eliminating the need to retain a paper version. CBC's eCredit Online and eQuailify Online web-based applications consumer consent are automatically stored in CBC's proprietary eVault making the process automatic.
