Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act
The first thing you should understand is that you do have rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Essentially, the Act is designed to remove fraudulent accounts from your credit, as well as fraudulent transactions that occurred under an account in your name. Essentially, if you notice an error on your credit report, dispute the error, and the company in question fails to remedy the issue, you may have grounds to bring a lawsuit against the company. As long as we are successful in your claim, you should receive compensation for the financial, as well as emotional damages you’ve incurred.
Bringing a Claim On Time
Those who’ve noticed fraudulent activity show up on their credit report should take action sooner, rather than later, as the statute of limitations for bringing a claim under the Fair Credit Reporting Act is, typically, either two years from the date you noticed the discrepancy or five years from the date the discrepancy occurred. Don’t wait too long, for if you do, you may permanently lose your right to sue.
