A blog explaining the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Welcome to FCRA Lawyer blog!

This blog is dedicated to explaining the ins and outs of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq.) is the federal legislation that regulates the credit reporting industry, including the national credit bureaus Equifax®, Experian®, and TransUnion®.

Just because I am an attorney, that doesn't make me YOUR attorney. So reading this blog, posting to this blog or conversing with me via this blog does not create any kind of attorney client relationship between me and you or my law firm and you. In other words, unless there is a contract signed by me and you memorializing my representation of you, you are NOT my client. Thanks for understanding.
