Oh, Lord—Now even God has a Equifax credit score.
The credit reporting giant Equifax has reportedly settled a bizarre case in which it was accused of denying a New York man named "God" entry into its credit database because it refused to recognize his legal name.
Equifax's original stance had led the man, Brooklyn jewelry dealer God Gazarov, to being denied one car loan, and and then being charged a higher rate of interest on a loan because he was deemed as having no credit history, according to the New York Post.

Despite protests by God—the human one—an Equifax customer-service rep had allegedly refused to accept his name into the company's system, and even suggested he change his first name. In contrast, the two other major credit agencies, TransUnion and Experian, had accepted his name, according to the lawsuit.
But Equifax now accepts God Gazarov's name as legitimate for its database according to the settlement, which was reported Thursday by the Post and the Daily News.
