Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
The FCRA is a powerful federal law intended to empower consumers against unfair credit reporting practices of credit reporting agencies and creditors. Each year thousands and thousands of consumers are denied credit, experience adverse credit actions, are offered credit on less-than-prime terms, are denied employment, and experience many other disadvantages because credit reporting agencies refuse to correct inaccurate consumer credit reports. We are experienced in bringing credit reporting agencies to court to force them to correct inaccurate and misleading consumer credit reports under the FCRA. The FCRA requires credit reporting agencies to pay the attorney’s fees and costs of our pursuits so that consumers are not asked to pay any upfront attorney’s fees or costs for our professional services. We are very interested in learning about your FCRA claims. Please contact us right away for a free consultation about your valuable FCRA rights.

Only at that time, after you have filed a proper dispute, do you effectively have consumer rights. The below sample credit reporting dispute letter will help you assert your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Sample Credit Reporting Dispute Letter – FCRA
