Credit report errors are all too common. That is why the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) was put in place to help protect consumers. If you have received your TransUnion credit report and it has errors, it is important to dispute them as soon as possible to prevent them from doing any further damage to your credit.
TransUnion credit report errors can wreak havoc on your credit score. When your credit score goes down, due to TransUnion errors, it could be costing you money.
In June 2017, Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C. won a major lawsuit against TransUnion with $60 million on the line. TransUnion violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act when credit checks confused consumers with other individuals found on the United States Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control or OFAC’s “blocked list.” The list includes terrorists, arms dealers, narcotics traffickers and other criminals who are prohibited from doing business in the United States. The verdict for this lawsuit is the highest jury verdict in the history of the FCRA, and the class was awarded $60,055,800 in statutory and punitive damages.
The FCRA or Fair Credit Reporting Act also gives you the right to dispute TransUnion errors on your credit report.

Attorney Jeffrey Baskerville and Paralegal Faina Bhagat were an awesome legal team for my consumer affairs case! I enjoyed the professional and caring attitude they brought to the handling of my case! I was very pleased with the results of the case and how they brought me justice to stop the big 3 credit bureaus and collection agency from posting a collection that was not even legitimate! Thanks again Jeffrey and Faina and I appreciate your hard work and commitment to seeking justice and your passion for the Law!Michael H.
I had a problem with a credit bureau that I did not think I had a valid case against but Joe Gentilcore and Daynette Driver took my case and within 5 months it was settled and I received a check for all the trouble I went through. I would not hesitate at all to use the law firm of Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C., PC in the future.John S.
I discovered by accident that two of the three major credit reporting companies showed me as deceased. I engaged the services of Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C., P.C. to get my reports corrected. My credit reports are mow completely correct, the reporting companies paid the legal fees, and I received a cash settlement from both companies. I can wholeheartedly recommend Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C. if you find errors on our credit reports.Jimmie
