What Is FACTA?  FACTA is the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003 (FACTA), is a NEW FEDERAL LAW. It is designed to reduce the risk of Consumer Fraud and Identity Theft, created by improper disposal of consumer information. FACTA will help educate and protect Businesses and Consumers. For example, consumers will have the right to one free credit report annually from the national repositories and national specialty credit reporting agencies. President Bush signed the FACTA Law On December 4, 2003. This legislation contains significant amendments to the Fair Credit Reporting Act on a broad scope of topics and issues. For a initial analysis of FACTA and the many changes it makes to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) go online to the National Consumer Law Center at

has ruled that information in your trash is "fair game" to anyone.   The current law in the United States (federal as well as state law) is that: a person has no reasonable expectation of privacy for contents of garbage; and
a person has relinquished any property interest in garbage, even when it sits in metal trash cans or opaque plastic bags at the person's home awaiting collection.
