First time ever: Moneylife Foundation to help getting fast track credit report from Experian

Can This Happen to you? A True Story!
Anil Kumar (name changed) a well-to-do businessman-activist sent us this email: “I had a harrowing experience today. I had applied for a bank loan of Rs5 lakh but was shocked to discover that I was a defaulter on the credit bureau records. ABCD Bank had reported me a defaulter for Rs7,784 because of a dispute I had with them over annual fees nearly 12 years ago. The fee was Rs1,000; they kept the card alive and kept adding fees and interest. My wife’s credit report also lists her as a defaulter because she had an add-on card. I never realised this, since I have never taken any loan in all these years… How dare they?
This could well be your story too. You never to know what the banks have reported about you to credit information companies. Know it, before you land in an awkward situation.In yet another unique initiative, Moneylife Foundation has tied up with Experian Credit Information Company of India Pvt Ltd (‘Experian’) for providing credit information report.
