Credit Report Scams

I say (write) again, the FTC is a pretty awesome website. Here’s a good article on how to recognize credit repair scams. The article highlights these signs:

You’ll know you’re encountering credit repair fraud if a company:

  • insists you pay them before they do any work on your behalf
  • tells you not to contact the credit reporting companies directly
  • tells you to dispute information in your credit report — even if you know it’s accurate
  • tells you to give false information on your applications for credit or a loan
  • doesn’t explain your legal rights when they tell you what they can do for you
