I’m thinking of buying a DIY credit repair course from ##########. Have you ever heard of them? Is it a good deal? Should I do it?
I have never heard of this company but, it seems like they are selling a do it yourself (DIY) kit which only includes letter templates to send to the credit reporting agencies. Disputing is a great way of getting derogatory information removed from your credit reports but, you’ll want to make sure that you do much more than dispute with the credit bureaus. The FTC did a study about 12 or 13 years ago which found that on average 1 out of every 5 disputed accounts resulted in a deletion, they then followed up the study 10 years later and found that the number changed from 1 out of 5 disputes resulting in a deletion to 1 out of 25 accounts resulting in a deletion. So basically, the deletion rate went from 20% to 4% in 10 years. This is mainly due to the credit reporting agencies automating the dispute resolution process. The reason I’m mentioning this is that nowadays if you want to increase the effectiveness of your credit repair, it is important to do more than dispute the negative information. It’s important to do Method of Verification follow-ups, Debt Validation, GoodWill intervention, Permissible Purpose Verification, etc… in order to get more removals. Just make sure that the information that you’re purchasing from that site includes more than dispute templates, which you can find online for free. Make sure that the information that you are purchasing includes all of the techniques I mentioned, and more so that you can get the most out of your credit repair.
