IMPORTANT: Be very careful when answering their security questions to obtain your credit report. If you get them wrong you will have to write the individual CRA for your free credit report. When you login, write down the name of the creditors and the account numbers that are associated with them. You will also click on the “inquiries” tab and write down the inquires you see.
The only true credit score you can get is the FICO score. You can get it here: http://www.myfico.com/
YES. DISPUTE ALL YOUR NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS.
Absolutely. Make sure you dispute ALL NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS.
Since this is a federal law, yes. It will work in all 50 states.
Yes you can. They will still delete ALL NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS.
In most cases, no. Having the delinquent account there will not change if you pay the account. If you call the creditor and negotiate a pay for removal first then it will help your FICO score, however, you can remove delinquent accounts using this system without paying a creditor.
Yes. Dispute ALL your adverse/negative accounts. All accounts in the adverse/negative column of your credit report is bringing your FICO score down.
Leave the “Unverified Account” in the dispute letters.
I only included the original credit account and the account number. Should I also include the collection company that bought the account? Should I send another round for those as well?
Yes, you want to dispute both, even if it is the same credit line because it is reported twice. Remember: DISPUTE ALL NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS.
You have to send the 609 dispute letters every 30 days from the time THEY RECEIVED THEM. You will send your first round all at once, which include student loans, etc.
Yes! Dispute ALL NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS. They all make your credit score decrease.
Yes. Use the student loan ebook/letters and listen to this lawyer speak on the subject:
“How to Get Rid of Your Unwanted Debt: A Litigation Attorney Representing Homeowners, Credit Card Holders & Others” by Carl E. Person.

Sometimes they are very hard to remove but keep fighting. You will figure it out.
Use as much of the account number they display. The XXX’s or ….’s are fine. They will only show you part of the account number for your protection.
No, just include it with your next round of dispute letters.
Becoming an authorized user on someone else’s credit cards. THEY MUST HAVE GOOD OR EXCELLENT credit to bring your score up. Also, once you remove your negative accounts apply for a shopping card like Macy’s or another credit card. With this card you must never carry a balance and ALWAYS PAY IN FULL AT THE END OF THE MONTH. You can also call your bank and ask for a credit line increase. Make sure to do this once every 6 months.
Never dispute negative items online.
Yes, send round two.
Next you will track the letters and make sure they get them. After the 3 CRA’s get them, they have 30 days to respond. Keep EXCELLENT RECORDS. From you mailing the letters with tracking to the date they get them to when you get the response. If they mess up anywhere, you got them and can sue.
The dispute process is great because if they fail to verify within 30 days, they will delete the negative accounts. If they fail to provide physical proof to you within 30 days, the negative accounts are deleted.
And if they try to stall, you send them another letter. They might try to call your disputes frivolous. If so, use the frivolous letter response letters you bought and send them.
Go through all 4 rounds of disputing, keep excellent records and if they don’t delete the negative accounts, sue them in small claims court. I have an ebook on how to sue and win.
Wait for the new license. Don’t give them any reason to send it back by saying it’s expired. .
Emphatically yes. Many people get Judgments removed. You may not have an account number. That is fine, just put as much information as you can so they can identify the Judgment.
Absolutely. We help our clients/customers get repossessions deleted everyday. Make sure to dispute it.
You will input BOTH. I know, it’s terrible that they leave all the negative reporting from the original creditor and then ADD negative reporting from the collector. So you need to remove both. DISPUTE ALL NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS. They will delete both.
You can successfully dispute it. Sometimes removing it can be a little harder, but it is definitely possible. Even if it is off your credit report, you MAY still have to pay. The creditor or collector may still try to get you to pay. In my opinion, (not legal advice) I would not pay a collector or creditor unless they show you an original signed contract proving the debt is yours. IF YOU ARE SUED GET A LAWYER ASAP.
Use the credit bureau dispute letters and goodwill letters.
Yes. That is NOT proof of your debt. You must get an ORIGINAL SIGNED CONTRACT as proof of debt and they have not sent one.
You can get that debt deleted. Sometimes the collector does have those lease agreements, but not all the time. Make sure you see a contract with you signature on it before you pay AND IF YOU PAY, DO A “PAY FOR DELETION”.
Yes, to both questions.
Once a collection, creditor, bank, loan, negative account is removed, the credit bureaus keeps it off because it is unverified and illegal; therefore, if it comes back, you can SUE. Or, at the very least dispute again and if it does not come off, hire an attorney and SUE. Your rights are on your side. Be brave. You may have to sue if they are breaking the law. If you get a BRAND NEW COLLECTION on there that you never had, and never disputed, you have to dispute it. You know how to do it.
It happens sometimes. If you don’t get all your negative accounts removed all at once and had your oldest credit line removed it could lower your score. If you have stuff still reporting every month as negative it will bring your score down. If you don’t have many positive accounts it can bring your score down. BUT YOU NEED TO REMOVE ALL THE NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS and then your score will heal. Sometimes if you give it a few months, your credit score will increase again.
Remember you must send your next round of disputes. If you have not sent all 4 rounds of disputes, you must continue. “Verified”, “Will not re-investigate”, “Meets FCRA” or anything else besides sending a signed contract from the credit bureaus means they are LYING TO YOU. THEY ARE TRYING TO SCARE YOU TO STOP SENDING THEM. You MUST continue to dispute those items.
Inquires do not affect your credit score much unless you had your credit run many times such as they do at car dealerships. The dispute letters have a footnote that reads “Please remove all Non-Account Holding Inquires over 30 days”. Therefore, if you don’t have a line of credit or loan associated with the inquiry it will be removed.
Yes, but they can be harder so you may have to dispute them a few times with the inquiry letters, or as stated previously, the dispute letters have a footnote that reads “Please remove all Non-Account Holding Inquires over 30 days”.
Still hung up on these inquiries, huh? Either you ran your credit it several times or a company like a car dealership ran your credit without telling you. I would say make sure to get the inquiry removal letters and you may need to get a lawyer to fight those car/home lenders who broke the law.
Sometimes it can. This can also be tough but make sure to go through all four rounds.
Dispute with the dispute letters. And also send letters to the department of education found in the Student Loan Discharge Kit (Student Loan Pro). Also, check out this lawyer.
IGNORE IT. Wait to receive the official dispute summary in the mail.
No, you can ignore it. Just wait to receive the official dispute summary via mail.
No, but if you have been past due for a while, they may have just done so.
Send your next round of letters. ALWAYS SEND THE NEXT ROUND OF DISPUTES. DON’T STOP. THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO.
You have kept all your certified mail receipts and have given the credit bureaus written notice of pending litigation. Here are your options:
- Start over from Round 1 and dispute again.
- Hire a lawyer to sue the credit bureaus. Google in your area here is an example http://brennanlaw.com/
- Contact me or another company to dispute for you.
Send them every 30 days from the time the CRA’s receive them. When you send your letters off via certified mail, your receipt will let you know when they will receive it.
Yes. Dispute ALL negative accounts.
If it’s been 30 days, send your next round of letters. They are SUPPOSED to send you an updated report but they get thousands of disputes every day. Your FICO scores updates round 30 days.
Yes. Use goodwill letters for late payments and dispute the collection account if the account is back with the original lender.
Yes. The ebook with explain how and why they should be notarized. Make sure to wait to sign your name in front of the notary of the public. They are confirming you are who you say you are and that you are signing the letters.
Keep Disputing. These statements are designed to scare, confuse, and intimidate you. Did you receive an original contract with your signature on it? Of course not, so how is this “verified” or “meeting FCRA”? It does it. Keep disputing.
Again, keep disputing. These statements are designed to scare, confuse, and intimidate you. Don’t be fooled, you will get rid of the negative accounts, but you must keep going.
Yes, don’t do ANY disputes online. Send them your second letter.
It may. You will need to dispute the old, discharged accounts under the bankruptcy first. It may take all 4 rounds of letter writing, however, once you have removed the old, discharged accounts, you can then dispute the bankruptcy. It may take all 4 rounds of letter writing to remove the bankruptcy so in total it would be 8 rounds of letter writing to all 3 credit reporting agencies.
If it is verified after all 8 rounds you may need the help of a credit repair company and/or attorney. Go to:
In the unlikely event that occurs, you can send a dispute letter to the actual creditor and demand to see the original instrument of indebtedness in its original form to see if they do indeed have it.
If they don’t remove it and don’t have proof, you can sue. CRAs and the creditors who supply information to them must provide and keep your credit information current. When your credit circumstances have changed and the information in your credit report is not updated to reflect these changes, this is a violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Each violation can be a $1,000 fine, so it’s money in your pocket. In addition, you are going to help make someone else’s life better by suing someone who has broken the law. If everyone took action when their rights were violated, the credit bureaus would lose a fortune in legal disputes. It’s time to protect your rights as a consumer as well as protecting the rights of your fellow United States citizens.
