If we do not already have your credit reports; you will either need to order them, and send them to our office as soon as you receive them, or if you already have them, please forward them to us. We cannot start working on repairing your credit until after we receive your credit reports from
you. You can order your reports form this link if you need to: www.FicoScoreOnline.com. Or www.AnnualCreditReport.com. Or you can even go to www.identitymonitor.citi.com (will have to pay $1 to enroll but can cancel after a couple of days)
If we do not already have your current mailing address verification; we will need two proofs of current mailing address from each client. This can be your Driver’s License, if it has your current mailing address on it and an electric bill, for example. If you do not have your Social Security Card please include some document or statement with your number pre-printed on it. Make sure your documents do not have an old address on them. Each item must have your correct name and current mailing address pre-printed on it.
Recommended Things To Do:
Mark on your calendar the date you sent us your credit reports and address verification. Go forward in your calendar 60 days, mark that day as the day to receive updated reports. If you do not receive any notification within this time period, it is your responsibility to let us know so we can take appropriate action. Not doing this will jeopardize the guarantee of this program.
What To Expect:
Over the next several months here is what you can expect: about two to three weeks after we receive your credit files, you will receive a “thank you” letter from each Credit Reporting 2 Agencies (CRA); don’t worry if you don’t get one from each of them, not everyone does. Sometimes they also send “Anti-Credit Repair” letters, please do not worry about these letters. Remember they do not want you to repair your credit, it is going to cost them time and money and then they will ultimately lose money! We do, however, need you to keep of all the letters you receive from the three CRAs referring to when updated reports would arrive, we may need these items at a later date. If you get any kind of letter from them and you want to call the office or fax it to us, that will be fine. If they ask you to call or mail them anything, do not do it! It is their responsibility to verify the information; you do not have to provide them with anything, except address verification. If they request additional address verification or a copy of your SS Card, please forward it to them as quickly as possible.
After an additional 45 days, if you have not received a report from all of the agencies, email or call the office and we will send a demand letter to that company. When you have all three updated reports, please make a copy and send it to us. Please do not fax updated reports to the office. They will not make it in and will be unusable.
Once you receive all responses and they are sent into the office, we will cross reference each response with each other and formulate what our next step will be. We will schedule your next step, and once it is sent off you will wait 45 days again for the bureaus to respond. This process will repeat itself.
A Word Of Warning:
The CRAs do not like credit repair at all, it makes their job harder, they make no profit from it, and it makes them look bad to their subscribers. CRAs make money every time a credit file is pulled, and “bad credit” reports get pulled 70% more than “good credit” reports. As such they don’t want you to fix your credit score and will try to deter you by sending out warnings about credit repair companies.
You must keep paying all the bills you are currently paying on in a timely manner! Do not start paying old collection accounts; contact us if you receive anything on an old debt. If you are currently making payment to a collections agency, please notify us. Do not contact the credit bureaus without our consent. Doing so will jeopardize the guarantee of this program and can result in account cancellation.
Every month that you are in the program we are going to send multiple dispute letters to each of your creditors as well as the credit bureaus themselves. The success of the program depends on many factors, such as: what kinds of accounts you have, who the creditors are, the age and status of the accounts, the bureau analyst assigned at the bureau/creditor, previous credit repair efforts, and how responsive you are in getting us the bureau responses. Severely damaged credit and those with major derogatory accounts (bankruptcy/foreclosure/judgment) should be aware that it can take longer (6 months or more) to remove from all 3 of the bureaus.

Consumer Credit File Rights Under State and Federal Law
You have a right to dispute inaccurate information in your credit report by contacting the credit bureau directly. However, neither you nor any ”credit repair” company or credit repair organization has the right to have accurate, current, and verifiable information removed from your credit report. The credit bureau must remove accurate, negative information from your report only if it is over 7 years old. Bankruptcy information can be reported for 10 years.
You have a right to obtain a copy of your credit report from a credit bureau. You may be charged a reasonable fee. There is no fee, however, if you have been turned down for credit, employment, insurance, or a rental dwelling because of information in your credit report within the preceding 60 days. The credit bureau must provide someone to help you interpret the information in your credit file. You are entitled to receive a free copy of your credit report if you are unemployed and intend to apply for employment in the next 60 days, if you are a recipient of public welfare assistance, or if you have reason to believe that there is inaccurate information in your credit report due to fraud.
You have a right to sue a credit repair organization that violates the Credit Repair Organization Act. This law prohibits deceptive practices by credit repair organizations
You have the right to cancel your contract with any credit repair organization for any reason within 3 business days from the date you signed it.
Credit bureaus are required to follow reasonable procedures to ensure that the information they report is accurate. However, mistakes may occur.
You may, on your own, notify a credit bureau in writing that you dispute the accuracy of information in your credit file. The credit bureau must then reinvestigate and modify or remove inaccurate or incomplete information. The credit bureau may not charge any fee for this service. Any pertinent information and copies of all documents you have concerning an error should be given to the credit bureau.
If the credit bureau’s reinvestigation does not resolve the dispute to your satisfaction, you may send a brief statement to the credit bureau, to be kept in your file, explaining why you think the record is inaccurate. The credit bureau must include a summary of your statement about disputed information with any report it issues about you.
