What Should You Do If Your InfoLink Report Contains Errors?

Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) provides regulations and guidelines for background checks and screening reports. In the regulations, it is stated that if any of the information presented during a background check is faulty, unverifiable, inauthentic, or misleading, then the reporting agency has to make the required amendments within 30 days of a complaint. Moreover, it is the agency’s responsibility that the report does not adversely affect the candidate in the hiring process or for renting/buying a property. 

Some agencies, such as Real ID, Inc., at times, fail to resolve the inaccurate details within the 30 days deadline. If you have been a victim of false reporting then you should reach out to Consumer Attorneys. Consumer Attorneys will protect you from faulty reporting by taking legal action against any such agency to resolve your issues so that you can find the right job or the right home.
