Many people suffer financial harm when inaccurate information goes on their credit reports. In some cases, credit card companies or other creditors fail to post payments on time or post inaccurate payment information. Negative credit information can be wrongly entered into the credit record of a person with an identical or similar name. Some people fall prey to identity theft scams that can tarnish their credit records for months if not years to come.
People who have inaccurate information on their credit records have rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). They can get credit reporting agencies to remove that information — and they can even receive compensation.
