In today’s world where credit history plays a key role in obtaining financial services, the possibility of being incorrectly declared dead by the credit bureau TransUnion becomes a serious challenge. Such a mistake can close the doors to many opportunities in front of you and seriously affect your life.
Causes and Consequences
An error can occur for a multitude of reasons ranging from technical glitches to human error. The consequences of such a mistake range from denial of credit to problems with insurance contracts and obtaining a mortgage.
Real people’s stories

Not only did it prevent him from buying a car, but it also damaged his reputation and financial health.
- Maria from Florida: After dreaming of owning her own home for years, Maria finally found the perfect one and applied for a mortgage.

Maria found herself confused and desperate, not knowing how to proceed.
