Ave. N.W., Washington, D. C. 20580. 	
 	A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act 	The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) promotes the accura cy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of consumer reporting agencies. 
There are many types of consumer reporting agencies, including  credit bureaus and specialty agencies (such as agencies that sell information about 
check writing histories, medical records, and rental history re cords). Here is a summary of your major rights under the FCRA.  For more information, 
including information about additional rights, go to	  or write to: Consumer Response Center, Room 130-A, Federal Trade 
Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20580. 	
 •  	You must be told if information in your file has been used 
against you.  Anyone who uses a credit report or another type of 
consumer report to deny your appl ication for credit, insurance, or 
employment – or to take another adverse action against you – must 
tell you, and must give you the name, address, and phone number 
of the agency that provided the information. 	
•  	You have the right to know what is in your file. You may request 
and obtain all the information about you in the files of a consumer 
reporting agency (your “file disclosure”). You will be required to 
provide proper identification, which  may include your Social Security 
number. In many cases, the disclosure will be free. You are entitled 
to a free file disclosure if: 
•  	a person has taken adverse action against you because of 
information in your credit report; 	
• 	you are the victim of identify theft and place a fraud alert in your 
• 	your file contains inaccurate information as a result of fraud; 	• 	you are on public assistance; 	• 	you are unemployed but expect to apply for employment within 
60 days. 	
In addition, by Septem ber 2005 all consumers  will be entitled to 
one free disclosure every 12 months upon request from each 
nationwide credit bureau and from nationwide specialty 
consumer reporting agencies. See	 for 
additional information. 	
•  	You have the right to ask for a credit score.  Credit scores are 
numerical summaries of your credit-worthiness based on 
information from credit bureaus. You may request a credit score 
from consumer reporting agencies that create scores or distribute 
scores used in residential real property loans, but you will have to 
pay for it. In some mortgage transactions, you will receive credit 
score information for free from the mortgage lender. 	
•  	You have the right to dispute incomplete or inaccurate 
information.  If you identify information in your file that is incomplete 
or inaccurate, and report it to the consumer reporting agency, the 
agency must investigate unless y our dispute is frivolous. See	 for an explanation of dispute procedures. 	• 	Consumer reporting agencies must correct or delete 
inaccurate, incomplete, or unverifiable information.  Inaccurate, 
incomplete or unverifiable information must be removed or 
corrected, usually within 30 days. However, a consumer reporting 
agency may continue to report in formation it has verified as 
•  	Consumer reporting agencies may not report outdated 
negative information.  In most cases, a consumer reporting agency 
may not report negative information that is more than seven years 
old, or bankruptcies that are more than 10 years old. 	
•  	Access to your file is limited.  A consumer reporting agency may 
provide information about you only to people with a valid need -- 
usually to consider an application with a creditor, insurer, employer, 
landlord, or other business. The FCRA specifies those with a valid 
need for access. 	
•  	You must give your consent for reports to be provided to 
employers.  A consumer reporting agency may not give out  information about you to your employer, or a potential employer, 
without your written consent given 
to the employer. Written consent 
generally is not required in the trucking industry. For more 
information, go to	 	•  	You may limit “prescreened” offers of credit and insurance you 
get based on information in your credit report.  Unsolicited 
“prescreened” offers for credit and insurance must include a toll-free 
phone number you can call if you choose to remove your name and 
address from the lists these offers are based on. You may opt-out 
with the nationwide credit bureaus at 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-
•  	You may seek damages from violators.  If a consumer reporting 
agency, or, in some cases, a user of consumer reports or a furnisher 
of information to a consumer reporting agency violates the FCRA, 
you may be able to sue in state or federal court. 	
•  	Identity theft victims and active duty military personnel have 
additional rights.  For more information, visit	 	States may enforce the FCRA, and many states have their own 
consumer reporting laws. In some cases, you may have more rights 
under state law. For more information, contact your state or local 
consumer protection agency or your state Attorney General.
