As a Dealer of Motor Vehicles, you are considered a creditor as defined by the Federal Trade Commission and are required to comply with Red Flags Rule.
If you collect, store or share non-public information from customers such as Social Security numbers, and/or banking information… or if you have customers complete a credit application and/or forms containing non-public information, you or your 3rd party service providers run credit and/or background checks and handle debt collection for your business, you MUST comply with this Federal Law or be subject to significant fines and penalties!
