Overview of the Credit Repair Industry
Credit repair has become a popular service in recent years, with many companies offering credit repair services to consumers. However, not all credit repair companies are created equal, and some may engage in fraudulent practices that can harm consumers. As a result, it is essential to do your research before hiring a credit repair company.
The credit repair industry is regulated by the Credit Repair Organizations Act (CROA), which requires credit repair companies to provide certain disclosures to consumers, such as a written contract with specific terms and a three-day right to cancel. The law also prohibits credit repair companies from making false or misleading claims about their services, charging upfront fees, or promising to remove accurate information from credit reports.
How Credit Repair Works
Credit repair companies typically begin by reviewing your credit reports from the three major credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion) to identify any inaccurate information, such as late payments, collections, or charge-offs. Once they have identified the inaccuracies, they will dispute them with the credit bureaus and the creditors reporting the information.
The credit bureaus are required to investigate the disputes within 30 days and either verify, update, or delete the information in question. If inaccurate information is deleted from your credit report, your credit score may improve as a result.
