Credit Repair is your right. Making sure that your credit information which is being reported about you by third party agencies is your right under the law. Although many people think that credit repair is not possible or that using an online credit repair company is illegal or may be a scam, the fact remains that hiring one of these online credit repair companies is completely 100% legal, and is your right under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Many consumers do not know but the FCRA actually supports your ability to dispute negative items on your credit report.
You have the right to double check any information at all, that you feel is inaccurate, that is showing up on your credit reports. Remember that the three major credit bureaus are independent companies that are buying and reselling information about you to creditors, lenders and banks. You did not ask for this credit information to be compiled about you but it is and the laws are in your favor to insure the accuracy of this information.
Believe it or not, it is up to you and you alone to make sure that the information provided about you is accurate. If you feel that anything at all is not accurate, or looks even remotely fishy on your credit reports, you should dispute it immediately. If you don’t recognize a particular item, or a particular creditor; or even if your reported available credit line is not accurate, you should dispute it straight away.
Your credit report changes every single month. Every month your creditors update specific information about you and report it to the credit agencies. They update everything that they know about you including your account balances, inquiries, your recent payments and existing credit lines, so you should be checking your credit report all the time to make sure that the all of the information is 100% accurate. We would suggest checking the information reported about you at least once every two months at the very least. To really keep on top of what is going on, you have 2 simple choices…
