Credit Report Attorney Near Me New Jersey | Consumer Attorneys

You have reached Consumer Attorneys, where New Jersey residents can find real remedies for credit report errors that wreak havoc on their credit ratings and lives. Are you aware that an unjustified lowering of one's credit score means potentially being denied a mortgage or car loan, being bypassed for a job position or promotion, and being subjected to higher interest rates and home-insurance premiums?  

Obviously, any lowered credit score will have consequences, but if your credit score has been negatively impacted by incorrect, false, outdated, or missing information, something is terribly wrong. These errors need to be addressed immediately!

Our credit report attorneys will leave no stone unturned when they analyze your credit reports and evaluate your possible legal claims. If you need assistance with the credit report dispute process, our attorneys will be happy to take that burden off your shoulders.

Many New Jersey residents believe the information in their credit reports is completely updated and fully accurate. Unfortunately, many credit reports, thousands upon thousands of them, are riddled with errors at any given time. When consumers remain unaware of any damaging information included in their credit report, they often pay the price before they realize their credit scores have tumbled.

Errors and inadequacies run amok     

If you haven't checked your credit report in quite a while, discrepancies can remain without your knowledge. These could include a paid off loan having a remaining balance, an unknown account that belongs to someone else, an individual loan reported multiple times, one or more accounts you never opened, incorrect balances, and more.

From identity theft to human error, credit report mistakes can be generated by banks, mortgage lenders, and credit card companies who may provide inaccurate information to credit reporting agencies, which are not immune to making mistakes, as well. Our New Jersey clients rely on our credit report attorneys to take on the powerful credit reporting industry and hold them and furnishers accountable for negligent or willful noncompliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

The dilemma of inaccurate credit reporting becomes problematic when mistakes linger and a consumer remains unaware. You could be car searching and find a one that couldn't be more perfect for you. It has all the bells and whistles you desire. It's the perfect color, and you're confident your car loan will come with a low interest rate. After all, your credit rating is top-notch, or so you thought. You are denied the car loan, only to discover your credit report contains damaging information you weren't aware of.

The credit report conundrum is not going away

According to Consumer Reports, complaints about credit reports have reached unprecedented levels, partly due to the COVID-19 crisis. Yet, there is another challenge New Jersey consumers must contend with: New government stipulations afford credit bureaus more flexibility when dealing with consumer disputes during the pandemic.  

What used to be a 30-day window for credit bureaus to respond to consumer disputes has been replaced with no official time frame, though agencies must still exercise good faith with their investigation procedures. Just how 'good faith' are these investigations?

Consumer Reports reveals that credit reporting agencies devote limited resources to addressing credit report errors, and investigations conducted by their furnishers are often woefully inadequate. Additionally, agencies will frequently trust the information provided by furnishers, who may produce flawed consumer data.

It's time for the madness to stop. Our credit report attorneys will employ legal mastery to uncover any noncompliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, as well as fight for your consumer rights, hold perpetrators accountable, and work towards any potential financial compensations.

Check your credit reports

A major study conducted by the Federal Trade Commission in 2012 found that one in four American consumers had at least one error on their credit report. During 2020, American consumers filed more than 280,000 complaints regarding credit report mistakes.
