Is credit repair legal?
Yes, it is. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the law states that everyone has the right to dispute negative, inaccurate information on his or her credit report. We follow the same guidelines that are outlined in the law.
What are my rights?
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires each of the nationwide credit reporting companies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months. The FCRA promotes the accuracy and privacy of information in the files of the nation’s credit reporting companies. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the FCRA with respect to credit reporting companies.
A credit report includes information on where you live, how you pay your bills, and whether you’ve been sued or have filed for bankruptcy. Nationwide credit reporting companies sell the information in your report to creditors, insurers, employers, and other businesses that use it to evaluate your applications for credit, insurance, employment, or renting a home.
Can I do it myself?
Of course you can and it is your legal right to do so. It is pretty easy for anyone to simply dispute items on their credit report online but being successful with it is a different story. Achieving the positive results you are looking for is a pretty daunting task. It is time consuming, frustrating, and intimidating when you do not have the knowledge of how to deal with the 3 big data reporting agencies. The process takes a lot of time, patience, and dedication because the credit bureaus will do everything in their power to discourage all of your credit disputing efforts and it will work since you do not know the correct principles.
Most consumers do not know how to read their credit report and what all of the information means in order to conduct an effective dispute process with the credit bureaus. Hand over the stressful work and let our credit repair specialists handle your case. Let us do the work for you so you can sit back relax and take care of your everyday life responsibilities, and just watch as your credit score increases and improve your quality of life. You are guaranteed to see results.
