Helping Consumers With FCRA Claims

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) protects consumers’ right to privacy and an accurate credit report. If a creditor, employer, landlord or credit reporting agency violates the FCRA, you may have the right to seek compensation.

We are Santoni, Vocci & Ortega, LLC, a law firm serving clients in Baltimore and the surrounding metro area. With decades of combined legal experience, our attorneys are devoted to standing up to powerful companies, including lenders and credit reporting agencies.

The FCRA: What To Know

Federal lawmakers created the Fair Credit Reporting Act to govern credit reports, background checks and consumer privacy. In short, the FCRA requires that all credit reports be:

  • Accurate
  • Available to you upon request
  • Used only for certain purposes

Any violation of the FCRA could leave you with monetary or nonmonetary damages. For example, employers often pull prospective employees’ credit reports during a background check. If false information on your credit report prompts an employer not to hire you, you might have grounds for a lawsuit.
