Some information. Looks like a credit bureau.

From thier website:
'IDA, Inc. is ID Analytics' wholly-owned subsidiary that issues consumer reports regulated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). We provide information to many different types of companies including credit card issuers, retailers, and wireless telephone service providers.
The information we provide generates insights into creditworthiness and enhances traditional credit decisioning. It also helps protect individuals from becoming victims of identity theft, and helps companies protect themselves and their customers from identity fraud.
While IDA Inc. is a source of information for credit issuers, it does not make any adverse decisions and is not able to explain why a decision was made.'
So apparently, BoA uses them also , a bit like the Chex system.

I just checked out the site it says my score is 753 of 0 to 999... The higher the score the higher risk you are it also does not show you why you are at the high of a risk...
I wonder if they use that score for the product I applied for, maybe certain cards they run different checks on

It looks like the score they give you, mine was 509, is your level of risk of being a victim to identity fraud. I'm a moderate risk. Then they try to sell you their monitoring service.
