Fair Credit Reporting Act

Course overview

The Fair Credit Reporting Act, or FCRA, was originally enacted in 1970 by the Federal Trade Commission. It outlines the rights of consumers and consumer reporting agencies with regard to consumer – or credit – information. The act has been amended many times, and was substantially amended in 2003 by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, or the FACT Act. In this program, we're going to be discussing the permissible uses for credit reports, what happens if a person becomes the victim of fraud, and what guidelines should be put in place for the disposal of credit reports.
