Each year, thousands of consumers are turned down for credit cards, mortgages, student loans, other important loans and employment and housing opportunities, due to inaccurate information in their credit reports. You DO have the right to view your credit report, know what information is contained therein, and you can dispute that information if it is wrong or outdated and have it removed from your report.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act is a federal statute, enacted in 1970 to protect the rights of consumers, and regulate the practices of those who provide information to the credit reporting agencies, the agencies themselves and credit report users. The FCRA states that a consumer can make a legal claim against, and sue the credit reporting agencies, creditors and debt collectors who report information that is wrong. If your credit report is wrong through no fault of your own, we can help. We offer a FREE* case review and can assist you in either ensuring the report is corrected in a timely manner or by pursuing a claim against those who fail to comply with the FCRA.
