Companies (like Legacy Credits) reviews your credit report and addresses any negative items that they can with the credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) on your behalf.
A few items to take into consideration when choosing to start this process.
-Read reviews of the company on the Better Business Bureau website
-Search the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s complaint database
-Search additional review sites for helpful user reviews
The credit repair company will set a plan for disputing errors and negotiation with creditors to remove items (I.e. charge-offs, tax liens, bankruptcies, etc). NEXT, they will set a plan to dispute errors and negotiating with creditors to remove those items. This plan includes requests to validate information, letters to dispute erroneous negative marks, and cease-and-desist letters to debt collectors on your behalf.
