    I keep getting mixed messages about credit repair companies such as Lexington Law, Ovation etc. I really need to repair my credit, besides inaccurate information there are some things on my reports I didn’t know about and I don’t even know what they’re for.

    My credit score has taken a dive with my student loans and I need to move into a new apt this fall. I need better credit than what I have.
    The credit repair company websites look impressive with them helping so many people and getting rid of a lot of bad junk etc. I am just wondering HOW are they doing that? Some people say they are just disputing items on reports, but if that’s the case I can do that myself and I have, but never got any real results.

    What should I do?

    Thanks “mom”;-) Is there a better way to dispute, I have been doing it online instead of writing via postal mail. Is that the correct way?

    I’m considering consolidating my debt with them and am leary of doing so. Here is the breakdown of my story:

    I have bad credit for a sleu of reasons (mostly due to having to take care of my ill mother with no second income and relying on credit) Anyway, I have roughly 11Kin debt. These have all defaulted and been sent to collection agencies, so there is no “pay off the card with the highest interest” advice needed here. I spoke with the Creditguard people and they’ve said that they can offer me a small monthly payment along with a $35/mo. charge for the consolidation and a one time $75 fee and in roughly 3 years, I would have paid off my debt. They would deal with them to stop the interest, etc. and I would only make one payment to them rather than 10-15 to a bunch of independant collection agencies.

    Any thoughts? Please don’t be rude- I’m trying to better myself and build a foundation for my family. Thanks.

    Hi, I would like to know the implication of the paragraph below in my settlement agreement, it just sounds not right to me… Thanks to the community:

    By accepting this amount American Express releases ME from further liability on these specific accounts only. No attempts will be made to collect the remaining balance. However, it should be noted that the account will continue to reflect the remaining balance which would need to b e paid before American Express processes any future applications that you may choose submit for American Express accounts or that an employer may submit on your behalf for an American Express Corporate Card. Notwithstanding the foregoing, future applications may still be declined based on teh credit criteria in place at the time the application is submitted

    I am on a budget, successfully last two years. Before then, we racked up nearly $9000 total in credit card debt on five cards. (home repairs, stuff). We have paid our credit cards on time, and have NO credit cards now. My problem, I am aggravated. Before my budget, I was late paying on two cards , and all cards jacked my rates to nearly 30%. So, even paying on time the last two years, the companies still deem me ‘risky’ since I only pay minumum. I still owe $9000!! I asked for a payoff amount, since half of what is owed is interest and penelties. They all say no, nor will they reduce the interest rate. (heck, they have a gold mine with me!) Anyone have luck with a letter asking creditors to take a lower payoff amount ?? I am caring for an ill son so i can’t work, and my husband’s job cut back so we are getting half of what we were earning. I don’t want to do debt consolidation, since they tend to be a scam. If I can’t negotiate a lower payoff amount, how can they?

  • Scot says:

    My husband and I are both 24 years old and we have a 1 year old son. We would like to purchase a home that our child(ren) can grown up in.
    We both have made very poor decisions in the past which has left us both with shot credit and a heap of debt. I have an $8,000 student loan (which has been deferred for the past 3 years) and my husband has a $16,000 student loan with Sallie Mae (I swear Sallie Mae could make someone commit suicide!) We have between the both of us probably 20-25 accounts in default/collections (mostly medical bills from when we had no health insurance and 1 credit card).
    We want to fix our credit but have no clue where to even start.
    Should we tackle mine and his separate, together, highest to lowest..what? Also, I lost my job a few months back, so should I wait until I find another job or do it now? We are lost, please help!

    PS. I know we made mistakes and we fully admit to that. I am looking for help, not judgments so if you have something rude or hurtful to say, please keep it to your self. (10 pts for best answer)

    So I have rec’d $1500 from a settlement – should I pay off/down credit cards, save it, or pay down my auto loan which is at $10,995 due to mature 2012 andi nterest is a whopping 16% (had bad credit at time of loan) the money IS enuff to pay off smaller cc balances and would put a dent in my larger balance cc’s — (FYI my credit cards are under control I just need to get in the habit of paying them off every month and not carrying a balance – Im well below all my cc limits) or should I save … ik now $1500 isnt awhole lotta extra but Im tryna make the best decision since I dont often have a lump sum of xtra money!

  • Thea says:

    I’m a student who’s already received her approval for the student loan and for the line of credit. However they haven’t come through yet and I don’t have enough money to pay my bills. Does anyone know about any financial institutes that can either help me find a better job or help me with some money?

  • Cory says:

    I got a $30,000 total settlement for a recent car accident. I make around $38,000 per year which is low for San francisco. I have no credit card debt and I am 26 by the way. I cant think of how to really spend this money. I live in San Francisco where the average tiny home is at least $300,000 so buying is not an option since my mortgage would be unmanageable(i.e I would not have enough to have a comfortable buffer, not to mention association fees for all condos are at least $300/month here)…The money is in savings at a nice 4% rate for now but I wonder if I can safely increase the money for real. Its not enough money to be a millionaire overnight but does anyone have creative ideas besides perhaps stock market? (I am kind of researching that now anyway). I also plan to keep $5000 untouched at least as an emergency fund by the way.

  • Tilda says:

    I’m curious about using a credit repair agency……I successfully repaired my credit 6years ago (as well as my husbands) by myself so that we would be able to purchase our first home. We are now looking to purchase a second home, but need to clean our credit AGAIN :(

    A friend of mine suggested using an agency that she just used and she now has excellent credit and able to get a line of credit. The fee for this service is RIDICULOUS so I’m starting to have second thoughts because I’m wondering if the amount she quoted for both my husband and myself or is that fee just for one person?

    Bottom line, is the process the same using a credit repair agency? Or will we go through the same process of disputing and paying off old bills? My friend made it sound so magical…… you pay them this large lump sum of money and in a few months everything is clean and my credit score is back up….

    What makes the difference?
    I’ve had several friends use those agencies and they WORK
    Okay, thanks Catdad………you’re the only one the answered my question. I wanted to know what they were doing and if its any different than what I can do. My question was not whether they work or not, because clearly they DO WORK….. ESPECIALLY IF THEYRE ONLY DOING WHAT WE CAN DO OURSELVES.
    I’ve seen friends with homes use different agencies to help them clear their credit to purchase their current homes, so I already know they work, I just wanted to know if it was worth my money…..would it speed up the process any, but it sounds like there really is no difference except that I’m giving them money that I could use to pay off old debt
    just because they are not doing something that we can do ourselves it does NOT mean they are a scam. I mean, we cash our own car, but that does NOT mean that a car wash owner is running a scam, accountants are doing what we should be able to do, but we don’t consider their business a scam………So, GIVE ME A BREAK! I’m not buying the whole “scam” Especially when Ive seen the results SMH

  • Robin says:

    Like alot of people right now, my family has hit really hard times, my husband’s business lost all work, we’re both working now but with very limited income. We have tried to make thngs right with our creditors, we’ve sold our house, and are thankfully walking away with some money, but cannot afford to pay the rest of our outstanding debt off. We have some repossessions (business related in his name) against us, medical bills, credit debt, etc. We need a place to live, and looking at houses that are less expensive than our old one, between $40,000 to $115,000, but wondering what are our options, if any, if we could pay down $15,000-$20,000? Due to our outstanding enormous debt, we’ll more than likely have to file bankruptcy anyway. The money we will get from the sale of our house is absolutely all we have, and we’re also looking into renting, and possibly moving in with relatives. We are a family of four, with 2 small children and pets, so it’s hard infringing on someone else’s home, I’m consumed with worry and can’t see what’s ahead. Any info about credit and what is an option for us would be much appreciated, thank you.

  • Olen says:

    My husband and I have recently been thinking about debt consolidation. I don’t really understand it all so I was hoping somebody could explain the process, what it does to our credit, and is it really worth it in the long run. PLEASE HELP!!!

  • Gerry says:

    My husband and I destroyed our credit. We had several credit card accounts that we almost always paid on time, but the interest rates were so high the balances weren’t going down. We signed up with a debt management company that advised us to quit paying our credit cards and let them negotiate lower settlements with each company. Well they didn’t negotiate anything. Soon after we started getting intent to sue letters. Our credit scores wend way down.

    We have just come into some money and were able to settle the balances on all 8 of the remaining credit cards. They are sending us letters saying that all of the accounts have been settled. Will the settlements make any difference on our credit rating or are we pretty much just screwed until it all clears off our credit report?

    We have a mortgage that we pay on time each month and since we are having another baby we will need to be purchasing a larger house in the next couple years. I am worried that this is going to be impossible now.
    opps – went*
    There’s really no reason to stay in a small cramped house when we can afford something bigger and nicer. Our income isn’t a problem.

    I don’t want to use credit cards to improve our credit. The credit cards were the problem and I don’t want anything else to do with them.

  • Tynisha says:

    We currently have a card that has 17400 on it and other that has 1400. The payments are around $375, and we are only making the minimum payment, which is never going to get it paid off. We currently can only afford the minimum payment and then it puts a strain on the rest of the month. Is there anyway to settle this with out have to be late. We have seen commercials that say you can settle for half but that sounds like a scam. We are in our mid 20’s and trying to be responsible with our debt but losing a job and having to move 500 miles away for another one really put us in a pinch. Could we settle this large debt or should we be thinking about filing bankruptcy?
