Now you may be overwhelmed if you just had a divorce (like I did in 1998) or you lost your job or business (like I did in 2007) or a medical issue that you had no control over. But even if you had to file bankruptcy, had a foreclosure or short sale or even Identity Theft, the good news is its HISTORY and YOUR GOOD CREDIT can be RESTORED.
Just don’t wait to do it, it’s costing you THOUSANDS of DOLLARS every year. Your car insurance on one vehicle with low scores compared to high scores may be costing you $80-$100 a month!!! For just ONE car! (We called an insurance agent and had the run the same car with bad scores vs good scores – this alone with 2 cars could be costing you $150-$200 a month. Some credit card rates are 20-30 %!
USCCRA’s approach is to review all 3 of your recent credit reports because everyone’s report is different and each situation is different. It’s just like going to the doctor for a checkup, let’s get a base line of what’s reporting that’s good credit and what’s reporting that may be derogatory credit. Then USCCRA will design an Action Plan to restore your good credit standing.
Many of our client’s have tried to fix their own credit. In fact disputing your credit it easy, getting results is not. Take a look at your report, can you read it? Do you know what it reporting accurately and what is not? If you don’t’ know all the laws and what your rights are as a consumer how are you going to be able to know WHAT to dispute and then how to dispute it?
Well for the same reason you don’t do your own knee surgery, or pull a tooth, you go to a specialist who knows what they are doing. Some people don’t even change the oil in their cars anymore.
Stop delaying – Take the first step today and get your review, you will learn more about your credit in just a few minutes that you ever knew before, and it will serve you for a lifetime!
