Jury Awards $60 Million for Trans Union's Violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act
On June 19, a California jury awarded consumers $60 million after finding that Trans Union violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). This is the largest jury award for FCRA violations to date. The jury found that Trans Union failed to correct “mixed files,” which occur where credit bureaus report information on the wrong consumer’s profile.
In this case, Trans Union reported on multiple consumer’s profiles that they were subject to an Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) alert when the consumers were not subject to this alert. An OFAC alert includes persons who are subject to sanctions, such as terrorists and narcotic traffickers. The jury also found that Trans Union failed to provide the consumers with an opportunity to review and dispute the credit information.
This case highlights the continued problems associated with inaccuracies reporting on consumer’s credit profiles. To prevent these credit issues, it is important to check your credit reports at least annually and give each report a thorough review. If you find inaccurate or fraudulent information, you have the right to dispute the information with the credit bureaus, who have 30 days to investigate the matter and remove the incorrect credit reporting. If the bureaus fail to correct the inaccurate information, you have the right to a free lawyer, removal of the information, and an award of statutory and actual damages.

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
