PHILADELPHIA – An Indiana man alleges he is not dead as two credit bureaus are listing on his credit reports.
Larry Pruitt filed a complaint on Feb. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Trans Union LLC and Experian Information Solutions Inc. citing the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the defendants have been incorrectly listing him as deceased on his credit reports since September 2017. He alleges this error has "made it impossible" for him to obtain credit.
The plaintiff holds Trans Union LLC and Experian Information Solutions Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to investigate the accuracy of the report on plaintiff's credit score.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual damages, statutory damages, punitive damages, court costs and any further relief. He is represented by Mark D. Mailman and Joseph L. Gentilcore of Francis & Mailman PC in Philadelphia.
