Most people are at least somewhat familiar with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requirement that the big three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) report only accurate information about someone’s credit.
What is less known is that other agencies besides these three must also comply with the requirements of the FCRA.
For instance, specialty reporting agencies that collect and disseminate information about consumers also covered.
The Medical Information Bureau (MIB) collects and sells personal health information.
CoreLogic SafeRent screens and provides reports on potential tenants.
TeleCheck and ChexSystems provides reports to retailers about a person’s check writing history.
LexisNexis keeps several national databases on consumers.
Each of these agencies are examples of specialty CRAs that must provide FREE reports to consumers and ensure that the information they disseminate is accurate.
