Because consumer reports are being used by more and more parties, including by landlords before renting an apartment, it’s important that credit reporting companies acquire accurate information. But the complaint for this class action alleges that TransUnion, LLC and TransUnion Resident Screening Solutions, Inc. (TURSS) do not do enough to ensure the accuracy and currency of information, resulting in unnecessarily negative reports to landlords. The complaint claims violations of the FCRA.

Plaintiff Christopher Carroll went through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy in November 2011, with an Order of Discharge entered in March 2017. According to the complaint for this civil action, however, the reporting submitted for his mortgage by Regions Bank, Inc. (Alabama) and published by Equifax Information Services, LLC still contains errors relating to the bankruptcy. Carroll disputed the entries and provided documentation, the complaint says, but the report still shows the errors, in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

Strangers can’t simply go pull up your credit report; they have to be authorized and/or be doing it for one of a limited number of permissible purposes—so says the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). The complaint for this class action claims that Nationstar Mortgage pulled Plaintiff Jeffrey Helbling’s credit report without his knowledge or authorization, and without any permissible reason for doing so. Nationstar had solicited Helbling for a mortgage, but Helbling had decided he did not want to apply.
