This important relationship enables our mutual customers to focus on their core business.”


First Advantage CREDCO’s Red Flag Solution, a comprehensive offering of credit reporting services, identity verification, OFAC screening and reporting tools, is designed to help dealers comply with the new Red Flags Rule, which requires them to establish and maintain an identity theft prevention program by May 1 of this year.


“We’re excited to announce our partnership with Finance Express, which helps our mutual customers verify consumer identities automatically with every credit report,” said Eric Rumsey, president of First Advantage CREDCO. “Seamless integration provides fast, convenient access to important identity verification and compliance solutions – directly from their Finance Express platform.”
