How to Submit a Request

Please note this page is for eviction and/or criminal reports that TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions, Inc. (TURSS) issues; TURSS is a member of the TransUnion family of companies. If you see adverse items of information on your TURSS eviction and/or criminal report(s) that resulted from trafficking, you can take these steps to remove them.

Step 1: Write or print out the following details

To request the removal of adverse information from your TURSS eviction and/or criminal report(s), you need to mail a letter with supporting documentation to TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions, Inc. (TURSS).

In this letter, identify the adverse items of information that are on your eviction and/or criminal report as a result of the trafficking. You can write the letter yourself, or you can use this sample letter from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Step 2: Provide proof of identity and trafficking victim determination documents

With your letter, you’ll also need to include proof of identity and a trafficking victim determination. A trafficking victim determination is documentation that you are a victim of trafficking issued or signed by a federal, state, local or tribal governmental entity.

Please only submit photocopies of documents that prove your identity. Examples of acceptable documents include:

Proof of Identification Documents (Provide 1) Trafficking Victim Determination Documents (Provide 1)

Frequently Asked Questions:

Information about human trafficking or any documentation you share with us will not be part of your TURSS eviction and/or criminal report. If you choose to add a fraud alert to your eviction and/or criminal report, information that you have been a victim of identity theft may be disclosed on your report.

We understand this can be frustrating. However, if information still appears on your file, it may mean:

  • We’re still processing your request, which we start processing within 4 business days of receipt from you, but the completion of processing can take up to 25 days.
  • We determined the information you provided was incomplete and further documentation or information is needed to process your request. We’re here to help if you have questions about what information you need to provide.

If you need more support, you can call us at 888-387-1750. We’re available Monday – Friday 9:00am – 8:00pm, Saturday 10:30am – 7:00pm, Sunday 11:30am – 7:00pm, Eastern time, excluding holidays.
