‘God’ sues credit rating agency
NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City man claims that a credit reporting agency falsely reported he had no financial history because his first name is God.
God Gazarov of Brooklyn says in a lawsuit that Equifax has refused to correct its system to recognize his name as legitimate. He says an Equifax customer service representative suggested he change his name.
Gazarov, 26, is a Russian native who is named after his grandfather. He owns a Brighton Beach jewelry store and is a graduate of Brooklyn College. He says he has high scores with two other major credit agencies.
Sewage plant invites weddings
WOODINVILLE, Wash. (AP) — A sewage treatment plant near Seattle is advertising its availability as a wedding venue.
The Brightwater Wastewater Treatment Center says on Facebook it has a full catering kitchen, audio-video equipment, dance floor and ample parking.
You could even hold the wedding outside. The director of the Brightwater Environmental Education and Community Center, Susan Tallarico, said receptions would take place just steps away from where raw sewage is processed.
She says there’s no odor because all the processing is contained.
The King County plant was finished three years ago but has been available for rent for about seven months.
It costs $2,000 to rent the center for eight hours. One couple has already booked the sewage plant for their nuptials.
