Truth About Credit Repair
Home & Mortgage
Credit; Its such a small word, but it can have such a huge impact on your life. Most consumers do not know how much of an impact good credit, bad credit, or even no credit can affect you financially and personally. I have been in the Banking profession for over 16 years, and I have unfortunately seen first hand how bad credit can affect your life and your dreams. Your credit file will follow you for the rest of your life and will have an impact on whether or not you can get that dream home, or get the car that you want for a reasonable payment, or even worse it can effect if you get that job you so desperately want and need. Creditors look at your credit history and it tells them if you are responsible enough to pay your debts on time, if you have a pattern of spending to freely, and if you are trust worthy. I know you are saying how can a report tell someone what kind of person I am. I dont agree with it, but that is the way a lot of businesses are starting to follow and require a credit check before they will even hire you, so now is the time to get your ducks in a row and fix your credit.
There are a lot of consumers who have no idea what their credit score is, and what is on their credit report. You would be amazed about how many people have been victims of identity fraud and they dont even know it until they pull their credit report and there are negative items on their report that they had no idea was there. I think it is very important you have your credit pulled at least once every six months to make sure there is nothing on there that shouldnt be. Over the years I have had the pleasure of helping many customers get back on track and remove negative items on their credit report and just give them tips on how to improve their scores. Now let me tell you that there are a lot of companies out there that advertise they guarantee your scores will go up over 200 points. Im not saying that is impossible, but a lot of these companies just take your money and they send out a few letters to your creditors and thats it. They dont follow up, give you any updates and you are right back where you started, but now you have one more bill to pay.
I have done some research and came across 3 products that I think are actually very good and from the comments of some of their customers they are getting results and improving their scores. They are also learning how the credit score system works with the 3 different Credit Bureaus and how to make sure how you will never find yourself back in the same position.
Here are the top 3 Products.

The other option is to have a professional to all the work for you and the credit specialist will give you updates of what is going on with your accounts and the progress they have made with the creditors.
