CIBIL Dispute Resolution - Tips For CIBIL Report Correction

In the last few weeks, many well-known celebrities discovered fake loans in their name and all hell broke loose in the media! There were articles and blogs all over which explained how, why this could happen, which put pressure on the financial entity to proactively take ownership and resolve the issue.

But what if it were not a celebrity? What happens if this happens to you or any of your friends/family? What are you supposed to do then? Where do you go and complain? Better still, how are you supposed to ensure this doesn’t happen again?

Fortunately, there is a solution - and in fact, it’s not that complex either! The only way to ensure this doesn’t happen to you is by tracking your credit payment history regularly and making sure no incorrect entry has made its way into your credit report.


5 Tips To Identify Credit/Loan Fraud


Check Your Credit Report Regularly

This holds true even if you have been paying perfectly on time. The more regularly you track it, the quicker you will notice a drop in score or a new erroneous/fake entry in your payment history.

You can use any platform for regular credit score checks; however, most will charge you after 1-2 pulls of the credit report. OneScore is a super simple app that lets you check and improve your CIBIL score for free.
