How to Remove Credit Card Disputes?
Paying off delinquent accounts is not only what a consumer should be concerned of in cleaning up the credit report. Credit Card Disputes should also be removed since lenders don’t want to see this on the report.
Read this blog from Joe Petrowsky as it gives you the number to the bureaus and the period to expect for the disputes to be removed.
There is also a useful script you can use when you make the phone call.
Getting Rid of Disputes from a Credit ReportLenders today have a problem with accounts on a credit report that indicate that the accounts are in dispute. I wish I could completely understand why, but they want the dispute removed from the credit report.Very often, folks that hire companies to repair credit, will literally dispute any and all derogatory accounts, even when they are correct. I’m assuming they expect the creditor to just go away, but most of the time the accounts will show as being disputed and the obligations remains on the credit report.The normal process has been to write a letter or letters to one or all three of the bureaus and then it takes however long for the disputes to come off. I carried on this conversation with one of my clients the other day and he notified me there is a much quicker way. I love learning from my clients.Below is a list of phone numbers, some instructions and how long it will take for each bureau to correct the credit report.
