BROOKLYN, N.Y., April 11 (UPI) -- Even God has credit rating problems.

A Brooklyn man is suing Equifax for reporting that he has no financial history because the credit-reporting agency’s system won’t recognize his first name.

God Gazarov was named after his grandfather.

Gazarov filed a federal lawsuit on Friday after more than two years of fighting with the agency. He claims that the agency’s refusal to accept his name as legitimate stopped him from buying an Infiniti car last year.

According to the 26-year-old, an Equifax customer service employee suggested that he change his name to fix the problem.

The owner of the Gold Hard Cash jewelry store claims he has scores of more than 720 with TransUnion and Experian.

“It’s extremely frustrating,” Gazarov told the New York Post. “I worked hard to get good credit to look good to lenders and this happens.”
