Slow news day ...

... in the FCRA world.  But here are a few articles worth a quick look:

An article by Holly Culhane about concerns over Social Intelligence - a CRA that publishes reports to potential employers (and presumably others) utilizing "deep searches" of consumers' social networking sites such as FaceBook and MySpace. - http://www.bakersfield.com/news/business/economy/x2000241818/HOLLY-CULHANE-Beware-Internet-background-checks-have-risks

A Washington Post article about an FDIC probe of Discover Card's sales practices, including its marketing of its identity theft protection services - http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/industries/discover-faces-fdic-enforcement-after-probe-on-sales-practices-for-credit-id-theft-protection/2011/09/29/gIQAjEnc7K_story.html

A man sues his bar (CRAAAAZY, I know!) because they published his credit card's expiration date on multiple receipts over a period of time - this one's a stretch even for me.  Here's the article - http://www.baltimoresun.com/entertainment/music/midnight-sun-blog/bs-ae-koopers-lawsuit-0930-20110929,0,5085973.story

Enjoy!
