The Kittell Law Firm filed a new Fair Credit Reporting Act lawsuit today against Equifax for mixing the credit file of our client with that of his father. As a result, three of the father's tax liens were reported by Equifax on our client's credit report. What's even worse than that? Equifax failed to remove the father's tax liens from the son's credit report, even after the son provided documentation that the tax liens belonged to the father. Equifax continued reporting the father's tax liens on the son's credit report, causing the son to be denied credit on at least three occasions.
Its bad enough to mix up two people with different names, different Social Security numbers, different addresses and different dates of birth. What's worse is that Equifax still could not get it right even after being told to fix the obvious error. Good thing the Fair Credit Reporting Act exists to provide consumers with the opportunity to obtain justice for the aggravation and other damages caused by the credit bureaus' callous disrespect for the accuracy of the credit reports they generate.
