Maxine Waters, chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, asked the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to stop Equifax from selling credit scores to lenders until the credit-reporting firm can prove it has the controls in place to ensure its scores are correct. In a letter to the CFPB, viewed by The Wall Street Journal, the California congresswoman also called for “more robust enforcement action” against the company that goes beyond fines.
