We take a strategic, aggressive approach and our lawyers will fight to protect you against violations of the FCRA.

What is the Fair Credit Reporting Act?

The FCRA establishes guidelines and standards for credit reporting agencies, creditors, and businesses that handle consumer credit information. It sets forth rules regarding the collection, accuracy, and use of consumer credit information. Key provisions of the FCRA include:

  1. Accuracy in Reporting: The FCRA mandates that credit reporting agencies and data furnishers must maintain accurate and up-to-date information about consumers’ credit history. Inaccurate or outdated information can have serious consequences for individuals’ creditworthiness.

  2. Privacy and Consent: The FCRA requires that individuals’ consent is obtained before their credit information is shared with third parties for certain purposes, such as employment background checks. It also protects consumer privacy by limiting who can access their credit reports.

  3. Dispute Resolution: The FCRA provides a mechanism for consumers to dispute inaccurate or incomplete information on their credit reports. Credit reporting agencies are required to investigate and correct any errors within a reasonable time frame.

What Are Common Violations Of The FCRA?

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is a vital piece of legislation designed to protect the rights of debtors and ensure accurate reporting of financial information. It contains several provisions that address various aspects of credit reporting and debtors’ rights. Understanding these provisions is crucial for individuals seeking to protect their credit and financial well-being.

One of the most common violations of the FCRA involves inaccuracies in credit reporting. Credit reporting agencies and data furnishers may inadvertently or intentionally report incorrect information, such as late payments, accounts in collections, or erroneous account closures. These inaccuracies can significantly impact individuals’ credit scores and financial well-being. It may result in the denial of credit, higher interest rates, or even difficulty securing employment or housing.
