My credit union shared personal information!
October 1, 2014
Q: What legal rights do I have if my credit union gives personal information to my ex-boyfriend – who’s not affiliated with that loan I have though them?
Joe: There are all sorts of disclosure laws that banks and hospitals legally have to follow re: the release of personal information. Unless he was a co-signatory on your loan with the credit union, there would be no reason for them to release your personal information to him. Your first step is to file a formal complaint with the credit union – requesting a written letter of explanation as to why this incident occurred. Then based on their response, you may wish to seek an attorney to determine if you should proceed from there.
