Credit Report Error Resolution
A wide range of errors can sneak onto a person’s credit report. Accounts may accidentally be merged with those of relatives or people with similar names. A bill may be reported as past due when it actually was paid on time. A bank or creditor may accidentally report a foreclosure or other serious financial event. We have even seen credit reports closed because the owner was reported deceased when they were still alive. Our credit protection team is able to work with creditors and credit bureaus to resolve matters such as these bureau disputes, bank errors and other violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
Credit Errors and Identity Theft
Identity theft is one of the major causes of credit reporting errors. Often, the thief runs up significant debt under the victim’s name, leaving serious blemishes on their credit report. Even when the victim reports this crime to the credit bureau, the bank and other creditors, the matter may not be resolved. We will work hard to see that it is resolved.
