VIDEO: Getting Back to Work, Protecting Missouri Consumers

Senator Claire McCaskill

    Dear Unity, Today, as the government finally reopens and thousands of Missourians return to their jobs, I wanted to take a moment to share with you a story you might have missed this week about how important our work is to protect consumers. A Kansas City television station highlighted the story of a young Missouri man who fought for years to clear his credit report of errors that have prevented him from making purchases such as his first home. As Chairman of the Senate Consumer Protection Subcommittee, when I learned of Ky Pohler's story I was happy to step in and make sure this debacle got fixed. Click below to watch: Earlier this year, I led a hearing where I highlighted the story of another Missourian, Brenda Campbell, who also waged a years-long battle to clear her name of credit reporting errors. I highlighted online marketing schemes by companies claiming to offer free credit reports and free credit scores that are unknowingly committing consumers to monthly charges for services, and I urged federal regulators to take steps to address this abuse. It's stories like Ky and Brenda's that show how important this work is. All the best, P.S. Have you ever been the victim of a scam or abusive and predatory practices? I want to hear from you.

Dear Unity,

Today, as the government finally reopens and thousands of Missourians return to their jobs, I wanted to take a moment to share with you a story you might have missed this week about how important our work is to protect consumers.

A Kansas City television station highlighted the story of a young Missouri man who fought for years to clear his credit report of errors that have prevented him from making purchases such as his first home. As Chairman of the Senate Consumer Protection Subcommittee, when I learned of Ky Pohler's story I was happy to step in and make sure this debacle got fixed. Click below to watch:

Earlier this year, I led a hearing where I highlighted the story of another Missourian, Brenda Campbell, who also waged a years-long battle to clear her name of credit reporting errors. I highlighted online marketing schemes by companies claiming to offer free credit reports and free credit scores that are unknowingly committing consumers to monthly charges for services, and I urged federal regulators to take steps to address this abuse.

It's stories like Ky and Brenda's that show how important this work is.

All the best,


P.S. Have you ever been the victim of a scam or abusive and predatory practices? I want to hear from you. Tell me your story on my website, HERE.
