Dun & Bradstreet will review and remove the filing if it is determined the record was incorrectly attributed to the company. Dun & Bradstreet gathers and enters only civil business-related filings into its database.
Criminal cases are not collected from the court but are often received through news sources and entered into a report as both a Special Event and a History comment. Dun & Bradstreet only collects business related civil filings (defendant is a business).
In addition, Dun & Bradstreet has discovered through verification procedures that many creditors do not file the paperwork with the courts to satisfy a judgment once it has been paid. If a company challenges the status of a filing displayed in their report and the filing is determined to be “closed” the customer may request it be removed at that time.
Third, a customer challenges the accuracy of a filing associated to their company’s report.
