Consequences of Credit Report Errors

The problems caused by errors in credit reports can be far-reaching. If you are employed in a profession that requires credit reports, you could be denied employment or opportunities for career advancement. You may be prevented from accessing credit for a home mortgage, auto financing, and other important purchases.

Credit report errors can have several origins, including:

  • A creditor mistakenly reporting negative information to the credit reporting agency
  • A credit bureau mistakenly merging information from two different people
  • Identity theft

You have the right to have inaccurate credit report information corrected and the credit reporting agencies are required to provide accurate information on credit reports. The best thing consumers can do to protect their financial reputation is to monitor their credit reports and dispute errors with the credit reporting agency. When you find erroneous information, you must dispute it with the credit bureau.

Legal Remedies Available to Consumers

In the event that information is not corrected after you have disputed it, an individual may be able to receive monetary compensation, as well as correcting the errors. Compensation may be available for financial harm caused by an inability to access credit, lost employment opportunities, attorney’s fees, and punitive damages. Speak with a New York City consumer protection lawyer about credit report issues to get the advice you need.
