Errors on credit reports are not uncommon, so staying up to date, reviewing your credit report is a must. Mistakes on your credit report can impact your score and your lending power. Some of the common errors found on credit reports are:
- Personal Information Errors. Errors such as wrong name or address.
- Account Errors. Credit accounts that consumers did not recognize as being theirs.
