Credit Report Mistakes Attorneys Who Will Protect Your Rights

Credit Report Mistake Lawyers in Florida

Representing Consumers Dealing with Credit Report Errors and Inaccuracies throughout the U.S.

Credit reports are often full of dangerous inaccuracies that could damage your reputation and life, and filing a dispute is sometimes the only option. Otherwise, you might be unfairly denied of credit, or even valuable job opportunities. By law, you are entitled to request that any incorrect information is amended or removed, yet creditors often refuse to do so, forcing you to file a lawsuit. If your credit report is full of errors and damaging inaccuracies, call our credit report mistake attorneys in St. Petersburg today. Here at Boss Law, we can help clear your report from any mistake, put your creditors’ back to the wall, and collect a fair and just compensation.

Why It is Crucial to Dispute Incorrect Credit Reports

When the information contained in your credit report is outdated, incomplete, or just erroneous, your entire life could be affected. You may incur severe financial losses, find difficulties in qualifying for work, or even get your mortgage, loans, insurance, or credit card requests refused.

While more than half of all credit reports contain some kind of mistake, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) found that one report in five had some major error. With over 26% of them being so serious that they resulted in the denial of an application for housing, credit, or employment. More than 43,000 consumers per year file a complaint to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Most of the reports still remain incorrect even after a dispute is filed. However, the FTC also found that a much larger percentage of these errors get fixed when consumers initiate litigation via an attorney.

The Most Common Credit Report Errors

Because those working in credit report agencies are human, there are often understandable, though not excusable, mistakes in their work. You need to be aware of these to ensure that you catch them before they have devastating consequences.

How We Can Protect Your Rights

To safeguard your rights, the U.S. Government established a federal law known as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). This statute requires companies to adhere to strict guidelines whenever they collect and use consumer information, or share it with third parties such as financial institutions, credit card companies, auto finance companies, collection agencies, or mortgage lenders. All of the three major largest consumer credit reporting agencies (CRAs) in the U.S. (Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax) must comply with the FCRA to ensure that all of the information included in your credit report is accurate.

Under the FCRA, you have several rights to ensure the accuracy and completeness of your credit file. Every time a company violates the rights established by the FCRA, you can sue them to receive a fair and just compensation.

Some of the FCRA litigation services we can help you with include:

  • Mixed File
  • Identity Theft
  • Background Check Mistakes
  • Fixing Credit Report Errors After Bankruptcy
  • Dispute Letters

Our lawyers can assist with any of the following:

Request a copy of your credit report - You can request a free copy of your credit report every twelve months from each CRA.

File a Dispute Letter – If you believe any of the information in your credit report is inaccurate, you should notify the CRAvia a written letter and clearly identify each item of dispite. Our attorneys can help you write and submit this letter so it won’t be rejected or ignored by the CRA.

Dispute the Investigation – All CRAs must investigate all disputes within 30 days of receipt and then have the results forwarded to you so you can review them. If you do not agree with their investigation results, you can dispute them until your report is updated with the correct information.

Deal with the Post-Investigation Phase – After the investigation, if any changes have been made to your credit report, the CRA must send notification of all those corrections to anyone who received a copy of your credit report in the last six months, or two years if a copy of the report was sent for employment purposes. Our attorneys can ensure that every step of this process is completed correctly.
