Credit Repair is an ongoing process, similar to the growth of another system. A system that works perfectly will need periodic monitoring and regular reviews to be certain the objectives of the system are achieved. The same is true for repairing one’s credit history, including understanding the different areas of interest that may be reported, identifying the various mistakes that may be made and learning how to fix credit score errors. One of the best ways to improve your credit score is via Credit Repair.

There are several areas which are commonly confused during the credit repair process, the first of which is inaccurate or incomplete information. This can result in a number of problems, such as the inability to become approved for home, auto and business loans; being diminished for employment; having poor credit report ratings; not qualifying for insurance; not having the ability to get certain professional licenses; and a large number of other issues. For example, missing data from a credit report can lower an individual’s credit score by up to 200 points. The usual cause of this problem is the failure to report accurate information.

When there are no national laws to protect consumers from inaccurate or incomplete information, the federal trade commission has taken steps to make certain that all consumers have access to accurate and fair reporting. The federal trade commission enacts many rules and guidelines to help Americans understand and avoid common mistakes and the negative consequences of those mistakes. For instance, the three largest credit repair bureaus in the United States must inform consumers of the differences between debt settlement and bankruptcy as well as the choices available to them. The commission also requires credit bureaus to provide consumers with reasonable notices regarding changes in credit scores, any negative action which might be taken against them and other important information. Among the biggest problems that consumers face is the failure to correctly understand the Fair Credit Reporting Act and its own rights.

Under FCRA, lenders are prohibited from making false statements about a consumer’s credit report. However, it doesn’t matter if these statements are true or not. For instance, it is perfectly acceptable for a creditor to report inaccurate negative information on a consumer’s credit report if this creditor reports that information to all of the credit reporting agencies. So, what if a consumer decides to question that negative information? Is it still legally valid?

This is a tricky question. In theory, it would seem that a creditor has every right to include incorrect negative things on a consumer’s credit report. But that would mean the creditor is practicing false advertising. Most credit repair companies dispute negative items on a consumer’s report. If the credit reporting bureaus take the dispute badly, the creditor will be asked to remove inaccurate negative items. But that will hardly ever occur.

Many credit repair providers will simply instruct their customers not to take action to correct the problem. Why would they do this? If a creditor won’t take action to correct inaccurate information, the credit bureau is under no obligation to remove inaccurate information. The credit bureau can choose to investigate the dispute and take steps to investigate prior to making a determination. Then it could issue a letter to the creditor notifying them that the information is inaccurate and have to be updated.

This situation plays out over daily. A consumer decides to buy a car and does a little bit of research to see what the cost will be. After speaking with a dealer, he makes the decision to buy the car. A couple of months pass by and he predicts the dealer and says the cost he’s offered is much less than what he had been told. He asks for a refund and is told that he cannot get a refund because the credit report comprises an error.

The next step would be for him to send a letter to the credit reporting agency, disputing the errors on his credit report. If he’d done this before hiring the credit repair company, he would have been able to generate a formal dispute. If he had not had the help of the credit repair company, he might have had to try to make the dispute himself. By using the services of a credit repair company, you’re given the benefit of someone else being able to assist you in this part of credit repair.
