Consumers Damaged as a Result of Inaccurate Tax Liens or Civil Judgments on Their Equifax Credit Reports Can Now Get $1,500
(Washington, D.C.) — The following is being released by Consumer Litigation Associates, P.C.; Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C.; Kelly Guzzo, PLC; The Adkins Firm, P.C.; and Berger & Montague, P.C. about the lawsuit Thomas v. Equifax Information Services, LLC, No. 3:18-cv-00684 in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
The Court approved a Settlement with Equifax related to claims that it included inaccurate information on its credit reports about tax liens and civil judgments, including how they were disposed (or described), or that did not belong on the credit reports.
Equifax has established an Alternative Dispute Resolution Program (“ADR Program”) for consumers who were injured by an Equifax credit report containing an inaccurate civil judgment or tax lien. Affected consumers can participate now. If consumers are able to show they were injured, they can get a payment of $1,500. The ADR Program is available until December 31, 2021.
Consumers may be included if Equifax sent their credit report to a third party between June 28, 2015 and May 14, 2019, and the report contained a tax lien or civil judgment that was inaccurate or did not belong to them.
Consumers should visit the ADR Program website, www.EquifaxPublicRecordSettlement.com, to fill out a form to participate in the ADR Program.
