Sample Dispute Letter

Dispute letters to consumer reporting agencies/background check companies are not complicated, but you may want a background check attorney at The Weiner Law Firm LLC to help you with the process.  

The dispute letter should inform the consumer reporting agency/background check company that:

    • you are disputing information in your consumer report
    • you are asking for a reinvestigation
    • as part of the reinvestigation, you are providing the background check company with as much information as you have to support the dispute.  

For example, the letter should state that you are requesting that the consumer reporting agency/background check company reinvestigate and correct the disputed information pursuant to 15 U.S.C. § 1681i, and you should provide the consumer reporting agency/background check company with information and documents showing that the reported information is in error. 

If you have any questions about the process or would like help disputing information in your background check, you should contact the background check attorneys at The Weiner Law Firm LLC for assistance with the process.
