227 C HAPTER 29 S ECURED T RANSACTIONS A NSWERS TO Q UESTIONS AT THE E NDS OF THE C ASES CASE 29.1 QUESTIONS (PAGE 594) 1A. Under what circumstances might a financing statement not be consi- dered effective even if it does not identify the debtor correctly? The court in this case stated that ―[t]here is a safe harbor‖ under UCC 9–506(c). . ―If a search of the filing office's records under the debtor's correct name, using the filing office's standard search logic, if any, would nevertheless disclose that financing statement, the name pro- vided does not make the financing statement seriously misleading.‖ Also, a financing statement that uses an incorrect name might be acceptable if no other creditor challenges the filing, either because no other creditor is interested or because the other creditor uses the same misidentifying name. 2A.
