Beware Of Disputes Related To Credit Reports

Aug 17, 2007
Things are fine till your credit report carries every record with correct information. A slight difference from the original facts and figures will create hues and cries. In turn this will become an issue of dispute. Your credit report will therefore be considered to be a false and fake one with inaccurate statements and misinformation.

When can your credit report be challenged? When you have hidden some information or placed some wrong data that can be purposefully or due to ignorance. This is one way of looking at the dispute of your credit report. Another is related to your own findings that whatever the credit report is saying is not at all related to your credit history. These are the general possibilities of the disputes that arise with the credit report.

What if dispute occurs?

Always remember one thing. If it's your intentional manipulation of the credit history, troubles will increase for you. Things can be dragged till court. But if it's the mistake of the concern authority they will be liable to rectify the errors and place them correct. In either ways you will have to proceed stepwise to get things done.

The consumer reporting company which is responsible for the issuing of the credit report comes under the norms of FCRA. Say for instance the mistake lies in your name and all other information is correct. Still your very own credit report won't be yours with this slight difference. After all the primary identity, the name is wrong.

Again it can happen so that the name is yours but all other information in the credit history is not yours. This can be a case of two persons holding the same name and there has been an interchange in the information by the issuing authority of the credit reports itself. There may be several other reasons as well due to which erroneous reports come up.

Getting out of any such dispute

The Credit Reporting Agency can solve your problem. You will have to take the initiative to get them informed about the disparity in your credit report. Things are to be put clearly in written with convincing testimonials. It will take around thirty days for the investigation and after the final scrutiny a new credit report will be prepared on your name.

This sounds like a smooth process. But for you it might not be so. If the process is lingered, one way is left to help you to carry on with the dispute yet not being challenged by anyone in the credit deal with you. Just request the CRA to attach a copy of the disputed report along with the credit report copy so that whoever comes across it will be aware of the real fact. And this would prevent any sort further hassle till things are rightly placed.
