A large component of all complaints that are received by some of the world’s largest credit and financial organisations, is connected to inaccuracies in credit reports.
A bad credit history can result in severe prejudice to a loan, applicant’s interests and can be the source of unnecessary and onerous financial hardship (such as higher interests rates, unnecessary fees and unfavourable treatment or rejection). Some of the errors that are complained about include the following:
- Transferring computerised accounting data can sometimes cause inadvertent errors resulting in unfair and prejudicial records on a credit history;
- Collection of accounting and financial data from sources that are themselves plagued with errors can compound mistakes and inaccuracies;
- Mistaken identity can create a situation where one individual’s poor records bleed into the records of another individual between databases;
- Stolen identities can also be used fraudulently, causing intentional confusion between different people’s credit history; and
- Other clerical errors such as incorrectly entered numerical data or misspelled names.
Systems are in place for the correction of erroneous information.
Ordinarily, the complainant will have to contact the entity who informed the credit agency from which the adverse credit report was obtained and a complaint will have to be made in respect of the erroneous entry.
The credit agency may be contacted in the event that the record does not make it apparent which entity was the source of erroneous information. That source entity will then make its own investigations after being informed of the objection and inform the credit agency of any corrections that need to be made.
