Is there a way to get creditors to reverse adverse information reported to the credit bureaus in order to raise your score?
Question Details: I have charge offs and collections on my credit report due to financial difficulties and would like to knoe if there is a way to have creditors reverse the information. Is it possible to get them to give me a break because unless I can get a mortgage I will never have extra money to pay off these debts. I have tried a firm that specializes in cleaning up credit reports but they have not succeded in diputing items on my reports.
My experience is that companies that help one clean up their credit scores are the best way to try to get credit reporting companies to assist in cleaning up ones credit report. As a general rule credit reporting companies have no real incentive in dealing with individuals themselves who are trying to clean up their own credit reports.
My suggestion is to start calling up the credit reporting companies on your own to see what can be done to improve your credit scores.
