Torrens Pledges Investigation into Credit Reporting Agencies

Cites Massive Number of Errors in Consumers’ Credit Reports

TAMPA, Fla – May 2, 2018 – Ryan Torrens, consumer lawyer and Democratic candidate for Florida Attorney General, announced that, upon election, he will launch a massive investigation into the three credit reporting agencies – Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion – for failing to properly verify debts and failing to delete paid or expired debts from Floridians’ credit reports.

“Today, more than 1 in 5 Americans have a potentially material error in their credit report. In my own law practice, I have seen a significant number of our consumer clients with errors on their credit reports, at no fault of their own. This can result in the consumer being denied for a loan and can even result in the consumer’s existing credit being reduced or eliminated,” said Torrens.

“Floridians have rights under a very important federal law called the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Attorney General Bondi has failed to enforce this law and failed to protect Floridians’ credit reports from false reporting. When elected, I will launch a massive investigation into the credit reporting practices of Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion,” said Torrens.

“These credit reporting agencies will understand that they will report accurately on Floridians’ credit reports or else there will be very serious consequences,” said Torrens.

Torrens has been campaigning across the State of Florida while fighting for his clients as a consumer protection lawyer. He says he is running to put the Attorney General’s office back on the side of consumers again.

Thank you for visiting our page! I am a consumer protection attorney who defends Florida homeowners in foreclosure and sues big banks, debt collectors, and other big corporations for ripping people off.

On June 1, 2017, I announced my candidacy for Florida Attorney General. Believing that how much justice you get should not depend on how much money you have, I ran on a platform of fighting for everyday Floridians and standing up to big corporate interests. During our 15 month campaign, I followed through on our pledge to refuse even one penny in big corporate campaign contributions. Though we fell short, we are proud of the grassroots campaign we ran and over 365,000 Floridians joined our cause and voted for our campaign. On election night, I promised to never stop fighting and I asked you to never stop fighting! So in this connection, we are going to keep this page - what used to be our campaign Facebook page - up and running. I am going to be focusing on the causes I’m most passionate about - fighting for our consumers, advocating for addiction recovery, and doing everything I can to make sure we advance a progressive, pro-people agenda here in Florida!
