Credit report errors cause you to pay more for goods and services.
A recent Federal Trade Commission Study found that 1 out of every 5 consumers had an error on at least one of their three credit reports at the major credit reporting agencies, Equifax, Experian and Trans Union.

The Fair Credit Reporting Act provides dispute procedures for consumers to get their credit reports corrected. Where credit providers and credit reporting agencies fail to properly respond to consumer disputes, the FCRA provides remedies for consumers.
With the growth of the digital age, businesses have obtained greater access to review and use private, personal information about consumers
Jim Pietz seeks to enforce such laws such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act to ensure that companies who sell or obtain access to personal information comply with their important responsibilities under the law. The firm has represented consumers in both individual and class actions that target companies who violated the FCRA.
If you believe that a credit reporting company is maintaining or providing inaccurate or old information about your credit history, please contact Pietz Law Office for a free consultation and for further information about your rights and how to proceed.
