1 in 20 Credit Reports Have Errors according to FTC

! in 20 American consumers had mistakes on their credit report that would have affected their interest rates on loans or caused them to pay more for insurance according to a survey released Monday by the Federal Trade Commission.

The leading consumer credit reporting agencies are Experian, Equifax and Trans Union. The FTC recommends everyone check three reports annually.

Some 26% percent of consumers found a mistake in one of three credit reports credit reports.

The survey was done by 1001 people and 2968 credit reports were requested.

I know a while back I checked into my D&B report and found someone had filed a late pay for me without my knowledge and never took it off. It got corrected.
