Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA is another weapon for Georgia consumers. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA, you will also be owed your legal fees paid by them instead of you.
Furnishers are required to conduct a reasonable investigation into the dispute, and then report the findings to the credit reporting agencies within 30 days. The CRAs and furnishers ruin many credit reports every year in violation of the fair credit reporting act. The FCRA applies to home loans, auto loans, credit cards, medical bills, student loans, background, and public records.
The credit reporting agencies are required to keep accurate credit files. 15 U.S.C. § 1681i(a)
When a consumer disputes information with a credit reporting agency, the agency must “conduct a reasonable reinvestigation to determine whether the disputed information is inaccurate.” 15 U.S.C. § 1681i(a)(1)(A).
The FCRA requires CRAs and entities that furnish information to CRAs (“furnishers” or “furnishers of information”) to investigate disputed information.
The furnisher of information must: (1) “conduct an investigation with respect to the disputed information”; (2) “review all relevant information provided by the consumer reporting agency” in connection with the dispute; and (3) “report the results of the investigation to the credit reporting agency.” Id. § 1681s-2(b)(1)(A)–(C).
A Fair Credit Report Act claim or FCRA claim a credit reporting lawyer generally starts with your credit report being inaccurate or incomplete. This is a claim against the credit bureaus for damaging your credit after you notified them of their mistakes.
The credit bureaus have a legal responsibility under the FCRA to take make sure the reports they issue are correct and accurate. This is why you must notify the credit bureaus when your credit report is inaccurate. The credit bureaus will request an update from the furnisher - the creditor that is "furnishing" the information to the credit reporting agencies, about the trade line or account on credit reports.
If creditors say the information is correct when it's actually inaccurate AND the credit agencies don't suppress the account information, you may have a claim for damages. You may need an FCRA attorney to help you navigate the federal call called the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Call today for a private consultation and review of your credit report. Don't let this effect your employment and your credit.
