Trans Union’s TLO database was hacked recently and its contents posted elsewhere on the internet. TLO is a massive database of personal information used by private investigators and law enforcement that Trans Union has collected. Trans Union, in case you didn’t know, is one of the three national consumer reporting agencies (aka credit bureaus). The Kittell Law Firm often sues Trans Union on behalf of clients for violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
