Outdated Warnings: There are some consumer groups stating facts about credit repair companies that are simply OUTDATED by over 10 years!!! The complaint level of credit repair companies have dropped drastically and under 1%. There ARE legitimate credit repairs firms and you see them advertising on TV and on social media. These consumer groups make claims about these companies not having merchant accounts but only using PayPal. Here is the problem, this information is so outdated because credit repair companies use special merchants account just for the industry and not Paypal at all. Maybe paypal was an alternative for them in the past but not anymore. This tells you that it is an outdated warning. Why the warnings? Many are backed and financed by financial institutions and it is advantageous for them to make those claims. Credit services are very much needed and you should take advantage of the opportunity to get involved and ignore negative noise.
Full disclosure: credit repair companies don’t do anything that you can’t do on your own. But they usually do it better than what you can do on your own. Legitimate credit repair companies have state-licensed attorneys and experience making disputes. They know how to make disputes to get results. So, working with a professional repair service often means more mistakes corrected and a bigger boost to your credit score.
