Experian Allegedly Oversold the Uses of Certain of its Credit Scores E-mail
April 18, 2017

Experian is one of the country’s three largest credit reporting agencies. According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Experian allegedly developed “educational credit scores,” such as the PLUS Score.  The CFPB purports that Experian violates the Dodd-Frank Act by concealing the true use of some of the credit scores it offered. According to the CFPB, from 2012-2014 Experian marketed the “educational credit scores” to customers, as if those credit scores were used by lenders.   It is alleged that when some customers looked for loans, they discovered significant differences between the educational scores offered by Experian and the actual scores that lenders used. 

Some individuals may have been harmed as a result of Experian’s misrepresentations.  If you or anyone you know paid for Experian’s educational credit scores between 2012-2014, please contact Ebonie Branch at Finkelstein Thompson LLP at  This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it  or call us toll-free at 1-877--337-1050.
