It’s becoming more and more likely that you have errors and mistakes showing on your credit report.
Debt collectors are having a heyday in this current recession as consumer default rates on debts are hitting record highs.
But more and more often ?debt-tagging? is taking place. This means that more people are getting harassed because credit information is getting reported wrong.
Have a common name? You may have someone else?s debt showing on your credit report. Getting harassed by collectors even though you have never missed a payment? Again, you can blame it on debt tagging.
The FTC receives more complaints about the debt-collection industry than any other.
And it is just getting worse.
It?s estimated that as many as 75% of all credit reports contain errors. In the current economy it seems to just be getting worse.
Get your credit report today and dispute the erroneous information.
