Your legal rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act
According to the FCRA, the credit reporting agencies, Equifax, Experian & Trans Union (also referred to as CRAs) must investigate your dispute. Upon receipt of your dispute, the CRAs have 30 days to complete their investigation and provide you with their findings. The law requires their findings to be accompanied by a free credit report. If their investigation led to the denial of your credit dispute, now is the time to seek legal counsel to enforce your legal rights.
Prior to obtaining legal representation, ensure you have followed the dispute process accordingly. (See step-by-step instructions on Disupting Credit Report Errors here).
Using the FCRA and other consumer protection statues, the attorneys at Cento Law can pursue money damages for such things as loss of credit opportunities, loss of employment or job opportunities, emotional distress, damage to reputation, and in some cases punitive damages.
