FRESNO – A Fresno County consumer alleges he was a victim of identity theft and that a credit information and risk management services company refuses to correct his consumer report.
Hussein Osman Ali filed a complaint on May 15 in the Fresno County Superior Court against Chex Systems Inc. alleging defamation, negligence, tortious interference with prospective economic advantage and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that the defendant falsely reported negative information on his consumer report and failed to reinvestigate the disputed entry.
