Credit Report Errors

Credit Report Errors in NYC

Types of Credit Report Errors

Credit reporting agencies, such as Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian, have the responsibility of providing accurate credit history information to lenders, employers, and other similar entities. However, many credit reports contain errors created by creditors/debt collectors, or the credit agencies themselves. These errors can include:

  • Multiple Listings - A single debt is listed two or more times on your credit report, making it appear as if you owe more than you actually do.
  • Incorrect or False Delinquency Reports - Your report states that you are behind on a debt that is actually current or has already been paid off.
  • Social Security Number Errors - Another person's credit information can be included on your report. Referred to as a "mismerged" report, it typically occurs in cases where two individuals have similar Social Security numbers.
  • Impermissible Access - When you apply for credit, your credit report is often reviewed, which can have an impact on your overall credit score. If someone reviews your credit report without your authorization, it can appear as if you've applied for credit more often than you actually have, which can be detrimental to your score.

If you have discovered errors on your credit report, contact a debt collection defense lawyer in New York City who will work towards correcting your report, and possibly recovering compensation for any financial damages you have sustained as a result.
