What are some of the most common errors made on TransUnion credit reports?
TransUnion can make a wide range of errors on consumers’ credit reports, not unlike the other consumer credit reporting agencies, such as Equifax and Experian. That being said, some of the most common credit reporting errors that we see include the following:
- Misspelled names or addresses
- Wrong names or addresses, in cases of mistaken identity
- Inaccuracies regarding payment information
- Errors regarding account status information
- Showing accounts you have previously closed as still open
- The same account being reported more than once
- Unauthorized inquiries
How can an attorney help if there is a mistake on my credit report?
If there is a mistake on your credit report, the first thing you should do is reach out to the credit reporting agency in question, in this case, TransUnion, and inform them of the error. In most cases, this should resolve the issue. However, there are times when credit reporting agencies will refuse to report a consumer dispute or will refuse to remedy the error. If a credit reporting agency refuses to fix an error on your credit report, you should strongly consider speaking with a skilled attorney who can file a claim against the agency. As long as our claim is successful, you should get the compensation and justice you deserve.
