This FCRA: Overview online training course explores the foundations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
The FCRA regulates entities that are involved in lending to consumers, specifically when it involves consumer information. It provides rules and a framework for such entities to produce, transmit, procure, and use this information in a fair manner. It also creates space for consumers to bring forward any grievances they might have if they believe that they have been treated unfairly by these entities or if they believe their identities have been compromised. Banks are responsible for ensuring that provisions are made for consumers to be protected and for their grievances to be heard and investigated.
