Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 23, 2006
Legal Helpers released the second article in a series on credit reporting errors, the issues they create and what consumers can do about them.
The article, which can be found at http://www.legalhelpers.com/credit-repair/credit-and-the-law.html, discusses the history of credit bureaus, how they evolved and explores the laws established by the federal government to help protect consumers from incorrect credit reports.
The series is intended to create awareness of a growing issue that concerns every consumer regardless of the current state of their credit. A single error on a credit report could result in an increased point or two of additional interest which could result in hundreds if not thousands of dollars that the consumer should not have had to pay. Legal Helpers will continue the series each week.
