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- Outdated information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.
