LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009) - DataX, Ltd., the industry leading real-time subprime credit reporting agency and data verification provider, announced today it now includes bankruptcy data in its credit reports to clients. This data gives DataX customers an additional level of consumer financial information on which to base loan underwriting decisions.

Among other information, the new data includes whether a consumer has filed bankruptcy, the filing status, case number and current disposition of the filing.

DataX also offers bankruptcy data by itself or bundled with any other of its services to strengthen clients' existing decisioning processes.
