consumer reporting agency list
These are specialty consumer reporting agencies, which
report on whether consumers bounce checks and pay late on their
rents, gambling debts, medical bills.
Just like the consumer credit
reporting agencies that issue credit reports, the specialty consumer reporting
agencies are governed by the rules of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
are entitled to one free report per year from any agency that has a file on them.
If the report results in adverse action against a consumer --
such as being refused the privilege of opening a checking account because of past
bounced checks -- the institution must inform the consumer why it has happened
and offer the name and contact information for that agency.
