Protecting your consumer rights and resolving errors on your credit report.
Most consumers, just like yourself, know how important your credit score and having good credit is to your financial wellbeing. Let us be honest, today you cannot even obtain a cell phone without decent credit.
Because credit is so important, it is just as important for you to know what is on your credit report and confirm all the information listed is accurate.
Fortunately, the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) was established to protect your consumer rights and regulate how credit reporting agencies collect, distribute, and manage your information.
At Gale, Angelo, Johnson & Patrick P.C., our attorneys represent consumers throughout Northern California with many consumer rights issues concerning credit report errors.
Types of Inaccuracies
Many consumers we have represented in a FCRA dispute in the past 10+ years have had one, if not multiple errors, which can include but not be limited to:
- Reporting Inaccurate information: Inaccurate information can include Inaccurate totals, inaccurate charge-off information, inaccurate dates, and inaccurate creditors.
- Reporting outdated information: After filing a bankruptcy or finalizing a judgement, the filings and/or judgement must cease reporting after a certain amount of time has lapsed.
- Identity Theft: A person can get access to your credit file and take out new credit in your name, if you detect any accounts that are not yours, you may be a victim of identity theft.
- Mixed Credit Files: Mixing up information in your file with another person with a similar name or social security number.
Due to the rising number of consumers, who have been affected by credit report errors, we have made it our goal to enforce your consumer rights.
