PHILADELPHIA – A consumer alleges that her credit report incorrectly lists her as deceased.

Beverly Miller filed a complaint on Nov. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Trans Union LLC citing the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff has inaccurately marked on the plaintiff's credit report that she is deceased since September. She alleges that this inaccuracy has made it "practically impossible" for her to obtain credit.

The plaintiff holds Trans Union LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly does not independently verify that a consumer is deceased before marking as such on a credit report.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks statutory damages, actual damages, punitive damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Mark D. Mailman and Geoffrey H. Baskerville of Francis & Mailman PC in Philadelphia.
