Do you have a most hated company? Where does Equifax rank on your list?
According to an analysis released Thursday by LendEdu, in 2017 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) received 30,576 complaints about the Atlanta-based provider of credit reporting services. No other company generated more consumer gripes in 49 states and Washington, D.C.
That lone exception was North Dakota, where Equifax rival Experian (EXPGY) earned this dubious honor. All told, consumers filed 235,094 complaints about financial services firms with the CFPB last year.
