FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) is a United States Law that regulates how consumer credit information is collected, used and shared. The Act specifies separate responsibilities for credit reporting agencies (CRAs) and the businesses -- typically creditors -- that furnish them with information used to create consumer credit reports. An amendment to FCRA, FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act) was created, primarily, to protect consumers from identity theft.
