Have You Found an Error on Your Equifax Credit Report?

As one of the nation’s largest credit reporting agencies, Equifax screens and reports on customers’ credit usage. These reports are essential to job hunting, background checks, and applying for loans. But what happens if there is a mistake on your Equifax credit report? Several common errors may affect your credit report. If you share a joint account with someone who has passed away, you may be mistakenly marked as deceased in your credit file. If you have been a victim of identity theft, you may have fraudulent accounts that appear on your credit report. When these issues arise, you may want to seek an attorney to help with an Equifax credit reporting issue.

If you are thinking you are having an Equifax credit reporting issue, you should first seek legal help to see if you have a valid claim.

If there is an error on your Equifax Report, this could lead to drastic consequences such as credit card closures, mortgage denials or losing out on your dream job. Credit bureaus and any businesses that access your report must comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) regulations. The purpose of the FCRA is to protect consumers and their sensitive information.
