Equifax Information Services and the Attorney General of Texas – Child Support are the defendants in a proposed class action lawsuit that charges the entities have incorrectly reported late child support payments and balances and continued to report such even after a dispute had been submitted.
The plaintiff alleges the Attorney General of Texas – Child Support furnished information that was inaccurate for “multiple reasons,” including, the suit says, uneven reporting of his account among the credit bureaus that denoted different balances and incorrect late payment notations. The man claims that he submitted a dispute concerning these items with Equifax in April 2018.
The lawsuit alleges that upon receipt of the plaintiff’s dispute, the Attorney General “failed to conduct a reasonable investigation and continued to report false and inaccurate adverse information,” as well as failed to mark the man’s account as disputed. Moreover, despite the plaintiff’s dispute, Equifax, for its part, “did not evaluate or consider any of the information, claims, or evidence,” nor attempt to verify whether the information on the man’s account was inaccurate.
