After you download your credit reports, it takes several hours to review them for errors. Then, you must gather documentation and draft dispute letters, which could take up to a week or more if you aren’t already familiar with your records. Depending on the item and the reason it's in your credit history, this could involve writing a short letter or performing significant amounts of research.
You can also pause your membership with just a click of a button in your online portal, along with being able to cancel at any time. Best of all, Sky Blue offers the only condition-free guarantee among credit repair services: within the first 90 days of your subscription, you can cancel for any reason and get a full refund of anything you've paid up until that point.
"CreditRepair.com is about the only email I look forward to receiving weekly.

Thank you to all the Staff that works hard to accomplish the results I was hoping for! P.S. I love the online chat, quick and easy."
"I worked with a different credit repair provider approximately 10 years ago. The experience then compared to my experience now with CreditRepair.com is completely different. I am a "skeptic" and do not trust credit repair businesses easily. The representatives are professional (always) and I have the opportunity to get text and email updates on every transaction that is performed on my behalf to improve my credit score. There is nothing I can think of that is not already being done that could improve the service."
The Veracity site advertises that they're accredited by the Better Business Bureau. That may have been true in the past, but at the time of our review, this credit repair service was not accredited and actually had an "F" grade. Why? Company owners Daryl F. and Wendy M. Yurek were found guilty of tax evasion and bankruptcy fraud in 2017 and sentenced to serve time in jail.
This provider offers a "performance-based refund policy": after you've been a client in good standing for 6 months, you can request a full evaluation of any progress they've made in repairing your credit. For every improvement or deletion they've made, eCreditAttorney will count it as a $95 value. If the total of monthly fees you've paid exceeds the value of $95 per improved/deleted item, you'll get a refund of the difference. Do the math, because that's not a fantastic deal: at $29/month, eCreditAttorney would only have to make two improvements or deletions over the course of 6 months to demonstrate adequate "performance".
"To be 100% honest, right now I feel like I'm on the bottom of the totem pole. After talking with CreditRepair.com I feel so much better. Anybody could do this stuff but when you're working as much as I am, you don't have the time to do it, and it's just peace of mind throughout the day to know you are helping me and that eventually I'm going to overcome by bad credit situation."
"I had virtually had nowhere to turn as I tried to reconstruct this area of my life until I began to search the net for solutions. I spoke with a representative of CreditRepair.com and was immediately assured that this was the safest and legal approach to resolving my credit issues. What I really like is the daily update and the activity being reported."
Then clean slate credit consultants in Florida. Branded as the donkey show. Priced at $59 to $25 and some pricing between $40 and $10 depending on who it is. Truly the best prices and the most unconventional website anywhere. Not for everyone. I was shocked but I figured it out. No upfront costs and they don't bill a credit card which I like. Google reviews rank at 200+. Impressive in this day and age.
We got even more confused when reading through the company's return and refund policy. It talks about returning software to Pyramid - but every description of the service says that it can all be accessed online. Why would they be shipping software to their customers - and would their customers install it with no clear explanation as to what it's used for?
“A good credit repair company will scrub questionable credit report items against other laws—like the Fair Credit Billing Act, which regulates original creditors; the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which oversees collection agencies; and others that address medical illness, military service, student status and other life events,” Padawer said.
"My experience with CreditRepair.com is the best experience I’ve ever had. You all are truthful, you’re not phonies like most credit cleaning companies are. You all keep me posted and keep all my information accurate; I always receive updates on my credit report – what’s been deleted or any changes at all. The world should come to this company; I would assure them that this is the best cleaning company in the world that anyone could ever want to come to!"
If you've already used up your free credit reports for this year, you can order your credit reports directly from the credit bureaus for a fee. The bureaus all offer a three-in-one credit report that lists all three of your credit reports side-by-side. The three-in-one credit report costs more than a single credit report, but less than the combined price of purchasing your three individual credit reports.
"Im blown away by this company! I am 26 years old I needed to repair my credit from bad choices I made when I was younger.

Credit repair companies can help when debt collectors attempt to collect an expired debt you no longer legally owe. Most credit repair companies employ lawyers to assist with these processes. The company’s employees send official cease-and-desist letters to get these collectors to stop contacting you. Negotiating with creditors may help remove inaccurate or out-of-date marks from credit reports, improve credit histories and increase credit scores.
If you pay a charge-off in full, your credit report will be updated to show the account balance is $0 and the account is paid. The charge-off status will continue to be reported for seven years from the date of charge off. Another option is to settle charge-offs for less than the original balance if the creditor agrees to accept a settlement and cancel the rest of the debt.
"I tried buying a new car a few months ago but I could barely get approved for a loan and if I did get approved the interest rate was above 20%. I decided to give CreditRepair.com a few months to work on my credit. I re-visited the dealerships this week and thanks to CreditRepair.com my score drastically improved and I was able to qualify for a very reasonable rate. Thank you CreditRepair.com, you literally improved my way of life."

If you have negative information on your credit report, it will remain there for 7-10 years. This helps lenders and others get a better picture of your credit history. However, while you may not be able to change information from the past, you can demonstrate good credit management moving forward by paying your bills on time and as agreed. As you build a positive credit history, over time, your credit scores will likely improve.
