How Do Credit Report Errors Happen?
Errors on your credit report can happen in a number of different ways. In many cases, individuals who have had their identity stolen will have significant credit report errors.
Other times, errors can be made when lenders or creditors make false or inaccurate reports to credit bureaus. This can often happen when two people have similar Social Security numbers, names, birthdays, or other identifying information.
Some of the more common types of errors that occur on credit reports include:
Inaccurate phone numbers
Other inaccurate personal information
Closed accounts reported as open accounts
Inaccurate date of an account opening
Inaccurate date of an account closing inaccurate date of delinquency
Inaccurate date of last payment
Account balance errors
Fraudulent accounts opened through identity theft
Accounts credit limit errors
Being reported as the owner of an account as opposed to an authorized user or vice versa
Accounts that do not belong to you
The same account appearing multiple times with different creditors
The same debt being reported multiple times
Inaccurate reports of accounts being delinquent
Obtaining a copy of your credit reports from each of the four credit bureaus is one of the best ways to detect errors in your credit report. It often is not until you attempt to open a new line of credit, get a loan, or file your tax return that you may become aware of how negatively these credit report errors have affected your life.
With the assistance of a talented credit report error lawyer, you can fix these errors and recover the compensation you are entitled to.
The Impact of Credit Report Errors on Your Life
Errors on your credit report can dramatically impact your life in more ways than one. If you attempt to open up another line of credit, take out a loan, co-sign on a loan for someone else, or otherwise need to pass a credit or background check, errors could have a negative impact on your reputation.
More than that, these errors can continue to affect you for years to come if they go unaddressed. Chances are, if one error has occurred, multiple will occur thereafter. It is important to address these errors so that your credit report is accurate and instances of identity theft or fraud are handled.
What to Do About Credit Report Errors in Florida
Despite the fact that credit report errors can have such a serious impact on your life, there are steps you can take to fix these errors. To start, you could file a dispute with the creditor listed with specific errors, and with the credit bureau that displays these specific errors.
The credit bureau will then need to review the information to determine whether our findings warrant an investigation in response. Your attorney will need to follow up and continue checking your credit report to ensure that the inaccurate information we reported is removed.
