New York Consumer Financial Protection Attorney Hashim Rahman Can Help Correct Credit Report Errors Caused by Identity Theft in order to Fix Your Credit
- Have you noticed strange charges on your credit card that you do not remember making?
- Does your credit report show accounts that you do not recognize?
- Or has a debt collector contacted you about a debt that is not yours?
- Identity Theft has become one of the fastest-growing crimes in the United States. In 2022, there were over $10 billion in losses from identity theft victims, with over $770 million in New York alone.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a victim of identity theft. The consequences can be serious – ruined credit scores, bills sent to collections, and long hours spent trying to clear your name.
But you don’t have to fight identity theft alone. I can help you dispute fraudulent debts and remove errors from your credit report. Just fill out the form on this page, and I will personally contact you to help with your Identity Theft problem. The sooner we address identity theft, the less damage it can do.
What To Do If You Think Your Identity Might Have Been Stolen
If you notice any suspicious activity on your accounts, close them right away. This will stop identity thieves from damaging your credit further. You should also contact the three major credit bureaus – Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax – to request a fraud alert on your file. This way, they will contact you to confirm any suspicious new account activity.
It’s crucial to document the situation thoroughly and notify creditors and credit bureaus properly. You must follow applicable laws exactly, as creditors will vigorously defend their interests. That’s why having an attorney’s help from the start is wise. They can ensure you take steps that are legally meaningful, rather than wasting time and effort on things that won’t protect you.
Top Credit Identity Theft Attorney Who Can Help
If you believe you are a victim of identity theft, I can help. We are going to gather all documents that show the debt or credit reporting error is not actually yours. This may include proof you were elsewhere at the time, the name is misspelled, the location is somewhere you have never been, you previously disputed the issue, or the name associated is someone else’s.
I will compile this evidence into a package for your review. We will then send dispute notifications to any creditors or credit bureaus claiming you owe money or have derogatory marks. Often, they do not respond, which works in our favor. If they fail to correct the error, I can file a lawsuit to definitively prove the debt is not yours and should be removed from your credit report. I will also seek compensation for the damages caused.
