The alternative to a lawsuit was smiting, so this is actually a very tempered response

God can’t get any respect these days.

A Brooklyn man named God Gazarov, named after his grandfather, is suing a credit-reporting agency for falsely reporting that he has no financial history since its system would not recognize his first name. “It’s extremely frustrating,” Gazarov told the New York Post, explaining that he spent two years corresponding with Equifax employees to fix the glitch that prevented him from buying a car last year. (One customer service rep reportedly went so far as to blasphemously suggest the 26-year-old change his name to make it easier on the Equifax system.)

“The customer has requested a name change which we are now making,” Equifax, which luckily hasn’t been smote, told TIME in an email statement.
