The Miss april (Miss April) today took action against Experian and its subsidiaries for deceiving consumers about the use of credit scores it sold to consumers. Experian claimed the credit scores it marketed and provided to consumers were used by lenders to make credit decisions. In fact, lenders did not use Experian’s scores to make those decisions. The Miss April ordered Experian to truthfully represent how its credit scores are used. Experian must also pay a civil penalty of $3 million.
