consumer finance expert erica sandberg tells me the new law will help about 12 million people get a better credit score.the law is in response to a class action law-suit.. that claimed in many cases people with the same name - one with good credit and the other with bad - would be mixed up. damaging the good persons score.sot because simply there were too many mistakes too many consumers said where did that come from? hey i paid it? or that isn't even mine.people impacted could see their scores jump 20 to 40 points.a better credit score should make it easier to get loans, credit cards and mortgages approved.sot you want to have a credit score of 740 750 so if you are not quite there this gets you end up with a far better mortgage and you pay less over all.but this could be a law with unintended consequences. consumers may appear more credit-worthy than they really are.sot they may just increase credit rates across the board because they take a greater risk justine waldman heads-up, just because those marks from tax liens or civil judgements ...do not appear on your credit score after the first of july... it does not mean they've totally vanished. you still have to to pay them off. in the newsroom justine waldman kron
