Oklahoma City, OK asked in Consumer Law, Small Claims, Personal Injury and Banking for Oklahoma

Q: seeking advice and assistance for a potential case against the consumer reporting agency, Experian, TransUnion, Equifax

I believe that my rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and other relevant laws have been violated. The FCRA (15 USC 1681 section 602 a) establishes the need for consumer reporting agencies, such as Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax, to exercise their responsibilities with fairness, impartiality, and respect for consumers' privacy rights. As a consumer, I have the right to ensure that my private information is not shared, which is supported by 15 USC 6801. This statute states that financial institutions, including First Bank and Trust Co, have an affirmative and continuing obligation to respect customer privacy and protect the security and confidentiality of customers' nonpublic personal information. Given the above circumstances, I kindly request that someone review the potential case against consumer reporting agency and First Bank and Trust Co for violating my rights under the FCRA and other applicable laws. Your expertise and guidance are greatly appreciated.

A: Your post does not contain a question. You might try to rephrase.

If you are asking what kind of lawyer you should look for in the circumstances described, I would recommend you search for a lawyer who practices consumer law in or near the county where you anticipate filing suit.

Because the statutes mentioned are federal statutes, check to make sure the lawyer is licensed in the federal district as well as state court. There are advantages and disadvantages to each forum.

Good hunting.
