Worcester Credit Report Errors Lawyer
Fighting to Protect Clients from Financial Harm
It is a well-known fact that credit reporting agencies often post erroneous material on consumers’ reports. These false facts can negatively affect one’s credit score, resulting in denials of credit or having to pay higher interest rates on such items as car loans or insurance.
A congressionally mandated study conducted by the Federal Trade Commission reported that, in 2013, one in five consumers found errors on at least one of the three reports put out by the major reporting agencies.
What Should You Do About Credit Reporting Errors?

Examples of Credit Report Errors
Erroneous information on credit reports can include:
- Failure to report payments made on time
- Inaccurate posting of payment information
- The information posted that belongs to another consumer with a similar or the same name
- Failure to remove negative information from old reports after the time limit has expired, such as old delinquencies, tax liens, bankruptcies, foreclosures, etc.
- Posting or failing to remove false information related to identity theft
What Causes Credit Reporting Errors?
Many of these errors are due to the massive number of consumer files that the agencies handle, many of which include information for the same person under:
- Married and maiden names
- First and last name only
- First, middle, and last names
- Old addresses
- And more
Furthermore, credit files are merged under algorithms that can be used improperly.
