Protecting Your Right To An Accurate Credit Report

The Fair Credit Reporting Act ("FCRA") is a body of law established to make sure American consumers receive fair and accurate reports in order to protect their credit scores. If you have seen false reports or inaccuracies that could impact your credit score, we can help you fight back.

At the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., our lawyers represent clients in a range of consumer rights issues, including problems with credit reports and violations of the FCRA. We serve clients in Beverly Hills and throughout the surrounding coastal California areas.

Most people feel powerless when they see FCRA violations. Our attorneys have a track record of success in these matters, and we can protect you against false and inaccurate reports.

  • Inaccurate totals: The details of your debts, the remaining balances and other financial information makes up the lifeblood of your credit score. When these numbers are inaccurate, it will directly impact your score, almost always negatively.
  • Inaccurate default or charge off information: A false report of a default, charge off or even a settlement could be catastrophic. Defaults, charge offs and settlements all represent debts that were not properly paid off and the creditor did not receive full payment.
  • Inaccurate dates: Sometimes, a wrong date for a credit event could be a problem, as well. If, for example, you missed a single payment for one month, and the report has it listed as being behind on the debt for a year or more, this could cause problems to your credit score.
  • Inaccurate creditors: As hard as it might be to believe, there are times when a credit report shows a creditor or lender that doesn't exist or with whom you have had no financial dealings. Obviously, reports of transactions that don't exist could cause problems on your report.
  • Inaccurate loan completion information: The time in which you finish paying off a loan or close a line of credit is important. When the dates of these events are reported incorrectly, it will cause problems to your overall score.
