THE DOCUMENTATION YOU WANT; THE
SIMPLICITY YOU NEED
Responding to consumer disputes in a timely, accurate and
complete manner has always been a top priority for the
credit-reporting industry. In mid-2013 we will be rolling out a new
feature that will allow the Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) to
provide Data Furnishers (DFs) with images of applicable original
documents that the consumers provided with their disputes.
The current e-OSCAR system has a free form field that the CRAs
use to convey the relevant information ("all relevant information")
that the consumer provided along with his or her dispute. The new
e-OSCAR document image feature will allow the CRAs to provide Data
Furnishers an image of the relevant documentation. We believe that
this option will enhance the dispute process for the CRAs, DFs and
Aside from the new document image feature, nothing else will
change. e-OSCAR will have the same look and feel, and it will
operate the same way it has in the past.
