How And Why This Works
The process of getting your information into your credit file and then out into your report opens the preverbal door and just about every window to error. First, data is provided to the Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRA) by furnishers. The information provided to the CRA may be inaccurate or incomplete from the start:
- The furnisher may report an account with an incorrect payment history, current payment status or balance.
- The furnisher may attribute the account to a consumer who does not owe the debt. For example, ownership of the account can be attributed to an authorized user or spouse who is not responsible.
- If a third party fraudulently opens an account the furnisher can incorrectly attribute ownership to the consumer.
- The CRA may fail to assign some, part, or all of the reported information to the file of the consumer to who it applies.
- The furnisher may not be reporting by industry reporting standards.
- Sometimes, furnishers transfer databases to the CRAs and there is a mistake in translation.
An additional level of potential errors occur because CRAs maintain files on consumers but do not provide the contents/details of the file. The credit report is “pulled” from the file. This means inaccuracies in consumer reports can be caused simply by the retrieval of erroneous information from the consumers file. Further, some CRAs use probability files, which are “probably” the consumers but may not be. The CRA might send a single file that does not belong to the consumer, multiple files that have nothing to do with the consumer, or only part of a file that does belong to the consumer.
The Federal Credit Reporting Act requires that consumer reporting agencies (CRA) utilize reasonable procedure to ensure maximum possible accuracy of information in your credit report. The consumer reporting agencies are also required to properly conduct a reinvestigation. If the reinvestigation does not resolve the dispute, you have a right to file a statement of dispute and the CRA is required to include the statement in any subsequent report.
