The magic formula for determining your credit score isn’t publicized, but there are some general guidelines. For instance, experts say your credit utilization (your debt in relation to your credit limit) should be below 30%, and ideally 10%, for the best effect on your scores. This means that closing credit accounts may actually be a bad move — it’s wise to do the numbers with a professional.
At this point, it’s up to you. Tell the consumer reporting company to send correction notices to anyone who got your credit report over the past six months. They have to comply with your request. On top of that you can direct the reporting agencies to send that report to anyone who looked into your credit over the last two years if their research was related to your employment.
If that doesn’t work, the Federal Trade Commission offers a sample letter you can use as a template to make disputes. Include copies of any documents that support your dispute (always keep the originals for yourself). State only the facts in your letter and concisely express why you are making the dispute. Send the letter by certified mail with “return receipt requested: to verify when the bureau received your dispute.
Although you can repair your credit on your own, we don’t recommend it. If you have the funds to pay a professional credit repair service, you should use one. You’re more likely to get the results you want and it’s going to be far less hassle. So, just like people opt to hire professionals to manage their retirement funds or to buy or sell their home, we recommend you opt for professional credit repair, too.

Credit repair is legal under federal law. So, you can legally repair your credit on your own no matter where you live in the United States. Federal law also protects your right to retain legal representation to make disputes on your behalf. This means as long as you retain the services of a state-licensed attorney that you authorize to make disputes on your behalf, then credit repair services are legal, too. Just make sure a credit repair company has at least one attorney on staff that’s licensed to work in your state.
Write the reporting company and tell them what you think is wrong about their report and include copies (not originals) of any documents you have to support your claim. State the facts of the issue – not how you feel about it – and tell them you expect them to correct the mistake immediately. Keep a copy of your letter but send it by registered mail so you have proof they received it. It also shows the company that you are serious.

You don’t have to earn a perfect credit score of 850 to be considered successful or qualify for the lowest interest on loans. A more optimal credit score to work toward is 760. Anyone with a score of 760 and above will likely get desirable rates offered by lenders. A history of credit, on-time payments and decreasing the amount you owe will help you work toward this goal.

The Capital One® Secured Mastercard® offers qualifying cardholders a lower security deposit compared to other secured cards. You will get an initial $200 credit line after making a security deposit of $49, $99, or $200, determined based on your creditworthiness. Typical secured cards require you to deposit an amount equal to your credit limit, so this card has added perks for people who qualify for the lower deposits.You can also receive a credit limit increase without making an additional deposit after making your first five monthly payments on time. This is beneficial for people who need a higher credit limit and don’t want to (or can’t) tie up their money in a deposit. Also, this card comes with a credit resource center — which is available to everyone — and Platinum Mastercard® benefits that include travel accident insurance and price protection.
Following these 6 steps people with bad credit are sure to succeed. I would like to add while paying down your credit card debts one option that may help you get ahead is to take advantage of credit card transfers. Normally banks will let you transfer your balance (they’re more than happy to take it) for a small fee. One word of caution however, is that this doesn’t really fix the underlying issue, which as Sarah mentioned budgeting and keeping on top of your payments will.

Financial Management Course, also referred to as "debtor education", generally refers to the "instructional course in personal financial management" that an individual debtor must complete before a discharge is entered. This is a separate course, not to be confused with the pre-petition credit counseling requirement. While the credit counseling must take place before you file, the debtor education must take place after you file before the discharge can be entered.
That means that you can also use credit repair to verify if a collector has complete information about your debt. If they don’t, then the bureau removes the collection account from your credit report. If the bureau doesn’t think the collector has enough information to collect, a court is unlikely to either. When you want to use credit repair for this type of strategy, you should work with a professional credit repair service.
You really do get waaay more than what you pay for here! The training is invaluable, if it were free people would probably take it as a scam or something but the training is genius! I used to be a corporate trainer and I see the adult learning model is used throughout the training, so most adults will grasp the concepts quickly and if you follow the business model step by step you'll be in business in no time, it's the real deal! I haven't started mine yet but this gave me the push I needed to get things moving! You can also see how easy the credit repair software is! What I really like about this whole set up is they are obviously training you so you'll use the software, but they don't tell you you HAVE TO use it. They will train you on other means, so it's an OPTION not a REQUIREMENT although if you don't use some type of system I don't know how on earth you'll do it. Anyhoo, all thumbs up from me, and I'm a very skeptical hard sell!
I was impressed with the listed content of the training course, for $59.00 I wasn't really expecting "THAT" much, in terms of the "Hows" and "Whys" of the Credit Repair Industry; I expected to have a brief "here it is, go out and do it!" kind of experience. This training is not dumbed down, and is easy to understand and retain. The use of video along with the text that accompanies each lesson is what I really liked about the course. Each lesson is linked to the next one, and the final exam, in a way, follows that pattern. It is not an easy pass, there is effort involved with it. I would recommend both the training academy lesson material and the training guide "The Ultimate Guide to Starting a Credit Repair Business" which is a free PDF copy of the paperback book, as tools that I will continually refer to. The private members-only forum is also a great resource too. All this for $59.00. Not bad. I'm going to follow the instructions in the course, I'm going to pull my credit reports, my wife will pull hers, and we are going to see what they look like. I look forward to applying what I've learned in the course to our own credit history, and then to the clients that I hope to get once I get things going.
