Victory State Bank Reminds You of Your Credit Rights
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. --Victory State Bank would like to remind you that the Credit Repair Organization Act (CROA) makes it illegal for credit repair companies to lie about what they can do for you, and to charge you before they've performed their services.
- This law, which is enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, requires credit repair companies to explain:
- Your legal rights in a written contract that also details the services they'll perform
- Your three day right to cancel without any charge
- How long it will take to get results
- The total cost you will pay
- Any guarantees
- What if a credit repair company you hired doesn't live up to its promises? You have some options.
- You can sue them in federal court for your actual losses or for what you paid them, whichever is more.
- You can seek punitive damages — money to punish the company for violating the law.
- You can join other people in a class action lawsuit against the company, and if you win, the company has to pay your attorney's fees.
