Have Errors and Mistakes Removed from Your Credit Reports

Florida consumers can instantly improve their credit scores by cleaning up their credit reports. It’s a fact that even those who manage credit responsibly don’t always have the highest credit scores. This is because credit report errors are incredibly common, and these mistakes bring credit scores down. However, at Credit Repair Lawyers of America, we remove credit score harming errors from credit reports for FREE.

We write and send dispute letters to the appropriate credit reporting agencies. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the credit bureaus must investigate and address these disputes within 30 days. If a credit reporting agency fails to cooperate, we sue them. This gives us more muscle to fix your credit reports, and the FCRA allows us to collect our fees and costs from the defendants in settled cases.

Mistakes Often Found on Credit Reports

The truth is that about 80% of credit reports are flawed in some way. Credit report errors are so common because creditors and credit reporting agencies are often careless with their consumer information. This mishandling leads to many different kinds of errors, but some mistakes are more common than others.

For example, we encounter a lot of expired debt on the credit reports we review. These are negative items such as charge-offs, repossessions, and bankruptcies that are too old to be reported. We also see a great deal of discrepancies among the credit bureaus. Namely, accounts are updated on credit reports from two of the major credit bureaus, but not the credit report from the third agency. This is how a “paid” account shows up as “unpaid” and costs a consumer credit score points.

Mismerged data is another big credit reporting problem in Florida. This is when account information belonging to two consumers with similar names gets confused. For instance, John Smith Junior’s unpaid bills ends up on John Smith Senior’s credit report. Sometimes credit report items are wrong because lenders contribute incomplete or inaccurate consumer information.

Unfortunately, one of the most common credit report issues facing people from Florida has little to do with lenders or the credit bureaus. Instead, the fraudulent charges and accounts that pop up so much are due to incidents of identity theft. Of course, if these items are disputed and not removed in a timely manner, the blame falls on the credit reporting agencies.
