Equifax says it has released a report that it says shows the credit scores of the Seahawks, the Seattle Mariners, the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Minnesota Twins, the Miami Marlins, the Cleveland Indians, the Oakland Athletics and the Houston Astros were all found to be inaccurate.
The news of the report comes as the Seahawks prepare to play their final game in Seattle this Sunday against the New York Yankees.
The Seahawks scored a total of 6.6 points in the report, which was issued in September, and were ranked as the top-scoring team in the league with a 7.2 rating, the second-highest of the year.
Equifax also released a second report, a version that was issued earlier this month.
It found that the credit reports of the Atlanta Braves, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Kansas City Royals, the Texas Rangers and the Texas A&M Aggies were all also found to have been inaccurate.
“These reports were made possible by the generous assistance provided by the Credit Reporting Agencies and the Equifax Consumer Products and Services Division,” Equifax said in a statement.
“The Credit Reports of these individuals were provided by our credit reporting agencies in a limited time period in the fall of 2018.
Equifax’s credit report systems are continually improving and we remain committed to delivering the best possible credit reporting information to consumers.”‘
