The reason this is important is that people make mistakes. That being said, it is possible that a mistake has been made on your credit report that is dropping your FICO score. Assuming you’ve caught an error, what do you do? Well, each of the three big credit bureaus has its own ways to dispute an apparent error. They’re all very similar.The Big ThreeOnce you’ve seen your report and found the error, all you need to do is go Equifax,TransUnion, or Experian. Any one of these links will take you to that bureau’s dispute page. Once you’ve logged in, follow the steps to file a dispute and you should be good to go. Once you’ve filed your dispute, it’ll take up to 30 days for a bureau to investigate and deliver the findings to you. If they find there was an error, they will fix it and adjust your credit report, thus potentially improving your credit score.Another WayThere is one other thing that can be done to fix a mistake on your report. Should there be an error, you can contact the company on whose account the mistake appears. In doing so, you skip having to go through the credit bureau and you get directly to the source. If all goes well, the issuer will have the bureaus fix the mistake and your report will be glowing. This may not be an appropriate avenue in all cases, especially if you’re dealing with identity fraud. In that case, you’d go directly to the bureau.Last StepsRegardless of which route you take, always keep an eye on your email. Typically, once you’ve signed up for one of the credit bureaus and you’ve submitted a dispute, they will give you updates as to where the process is.ConclusionShould you find an error on your report, file a dispute. It’s free and is settled quickly. Cross-reference all bureaus to see if the problem is throughout the big three. Take a look at your report and see if there are any mistakes. Fixing them costs nothing.
3News 1 October 2013Police say the overall reported crime rate has decreased, but sexual assault is bucking the trend, up 10 percent.The Statistics New Zealand figures released today show an overall 7.4 percent decrease in crime in the 2012/13 financial year.However, sexual assaults have increased by 10.8 percent, which Deputy Commissioner Viv Rickard is putting down to “greater trust and confidence in police, rather than a spike in offending”.“We believe that historically sexual violence is under-reported to authorities.“Police are heartened that victims of this type of crime are coming forward and we want to assure them that police take all complaints of sexual violence seriously,” Mr Rickard says.Dwelling assaults also increased by 1 percent.Family violence statistics have not been included in the official statistics since 2001, but Mr Rickard says dwelling assaults give some indication of domestic violence that happens.“Family violence continues to be a serious problem in New Zealand,” he says.http://www.3news.co.nz/Sex-offending-up-overall-crime-decreases/tabid/423/articleID/315324/Default.aspx
