Offers for miraculous credit repair are common in radio, TV, newspaper, direct mail advertising and on the internet.
But give yourself some credit and don’t believe incredible claims. Some of the schemes require consumers to pay large fees upfront – and in return may promise to erase any blemishes on credit records, get new Social Security numbers for clients or allow consumers to piggyback on someone else’s credit record.
The truth is that no one can legally remove accurate and timely negative information from a credit report. However, you can dispute something you believe is inaccurate, and you don’t have to pay a credit repair company to help.
