Credit Repair Companies
First, what is a credit repair company? The definition of a credit repair company might be different then you think here is CROA’s definition (federal law that governs credit repair companies) The easiest way to explain what a credit repair company is; it’s a company that charges a fee to assist a consumer in disputing or assisting and consumer with their credit report. A good credit repair company will do more than just send letters to the credit reporting agencies for you. The credit repair process normally needs more than just disputing items on our credit report. Unfortunately in the current credit system we live in, no credit is the same as bad credit. Knowledgeable credit repair companies will assist you in establishing credit as well. If you are just starting out with no credit history you can and probably will be treated the same as someone with “bad” credit.
