Can I Fight Credit Reporting Errors?

Correcting Credit Reporting Errors

Our Chicago Consumer Attorneys Can Help

If you have found an error on your credit report, you could be looking at much bigger problems than simply being denied a credit card. Credit reporting errors have the potential to negatively impact your loan eligibility; in extreme cases, reporting errors could even lead to identity theft. We advise you to review your credit reports at least once a year to avoid the potential consequences of a reporting error.

To right an existing error on your credit report, contact us at Sulaiman Law Group, LTD for a consultation.

Common Errors on Credit Reports

As a consumer, you have the right to a complete and accurate credit report. To this end, when inaccuracies or discrepancies arise, you also have the right to dispute them. Common credit reporting errors include:

  • Outdated information
  • Name, address, Social Security number confusion
  • Mixed account information due to identity theft
  • Incorrect payment status
  • Mixed information from an ex-spouse
  • Remedied delinquencies that haven’t been recognized

As soon as you notice an error on your credit report, you need to take immediate steps to correct it. Typically, a remedy can be made simply by contacting the credit reporting agency and asking for a correction; however, if this does not resolve the issue, you may need to dispute the error through a written statement. In the event the credit agency still does not take action to fix the error, do not hesitate to involve a Chicago consumer attorney from Sulaiman Law Group, LTD in the matter. We can help you take legal action to dispute the matter.
