Alabama consumers are sometimes amazed at the number of errors on credit reports, and there is conflicting advice on how to fix credit reports which have errors.
Some advise disputing every negative item.
We do advise disputing with the credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian, Innovis, and Trans Union, any information that is false.
On our sister website, Alabama Consumer Protection, we have a detailed description and video on how to recognize credit report errors and how to dispute them.
If you still have errors after properly disputing them, then we have some suggestions on how to ultimately correct those errors — normally by suing the (ir)responsible companies.
We hope you enjoy this information and find it useful.
