Newest Updates

We are introduction a new practice area page on background employment check errors

We just released several new articles on consumer law. One is about the death master file, another is answering the question why I have a zero credit score, and about when can a consumer sue Equifax. In the article, we go over the basic reasons that people sue Equifax. 

Here we are in August. Can you believe it? It's time to cover fun new articles we've covered. Does your file say you are dead? That sounds crazy, and it is. We covered it. This topic and more has been covered on this site. It's time we talked about some new pages on our site the needs to be seen here in the first of August.

We started out with a deep cut. You may know about the Fair Credit Reporting Act or FCRA, but how much do you know about deceased credit reporting?

We start you out with a geography question. Where is it?

How do I get a deceased indicator off of my Experian credit report?

The easiest way to remove an Experian deceased indicator from your file is to let a professional do it. Because this law requires the other side to pay your attorney's fees, letting a professional take of this makes the most sense. If you want to do it yourself, you would want to properly dispute the information to each credit bureau by certified mail, return receipt.

You know we aren't going to leave out our dear friends at Equifax. Therefore, we covered the same topic.

Where is my Equifax Indicators Found? That is a great question. We answer it on this page. We show you where to look and what to do if you find it.

Almost 6,000 people are wrongly declared dead by the Social Security Administration and in some cases, people are not actually aware of this, until and unless they have the use of a Social Security Number.

One of our newest pages is about the Social Security Administration and what happens when they declare you dead.

Next, we published an article about when a credit agency can't keep you separate from another person. The result is two credit files mixed together. Fixing these errors is overly complex and nearly impossible.

The specific issue we cover is what to do when a brother and sister have their credit merged?

Each month we add new articles for you. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
