    Answered . Your right to sue for a financial institution are regulated by the provisions of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act. I am posting a link to a copy of that law below. Some states also have laws that address this issue. My experience is that these laws put a huge burden on consumers requiring them to follow procedures that suing is nearly impossible unless a lawyer is standing by your side. I suggest contacting an attorney that handles consumer law if you are determined to proceed. Hope this perspective helps!

    Review your credit agreement.
