In FTC Study, Five Percent of Consumers Had Errors on Their Credit

The Commission vote authorizing the staff to issue the report to Congress was 5-0, with former Commissioner J. Thomas Rosch participating.  It is the fifth interim report to Congress[10] describing the progress the agency has made on a national study examining the accuracy of credit reports.

The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint in English or Spanish, visit the FTC’s online Complaint Assistant[11] or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). The FTC enters complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to more than 2,000 civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. The FTC’s website provides free information on a variety of consumer topics[12].  Like the FTC on Facebook[13], follow us on Twitter[14], and subscribe to press releases[15] for the latest FTC news and resources.
