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.

IN SETTLEMENTS AND VERDICTS
After getting rejected for various jobs due to my background I was down. However, after getting the Pre Adverse Letters I immediately knew something was wrong. Everyday we see advertising about law firms in tv and social media. When I came across the page of Francis, Maiilman on Facebook I didn't know if they could help me because I was in Florida. From my first conversation with thier Paralegal I knew I had made the correct choice. Communication is a very important part of relations between lawyers and thier clients. My communication has been great and all they promised was to try thier best. That was enough for me. Our expectations were exceeded when Attorney Alexis emailed and called me to inform me that we were offered NOT 1 but TWO financial settlements. I had to let it sink in first because this was not what we expected. I can't say enough about this firm. Thier personal touch, willingness to help those who some in society dont value, tenacity, and assertiveness are priceless. I would recommend this firm to anyone who thinks there are issues with thier background check and Pre Adverse Letters. Please give them a call or send an email. They went above and beyond for my family and.me. On top of everything I got offered a job also. Thanks Alexis and everyone at Francis Mailman.Ralph H.
Hope you are well! I closed on my house and wanted to thank you. You helped me get a better interest rate by fixing the BOFA issue, and the money helped me with a down payment (the settlement was higher than I expected). And thank you!!!!Adam H.
