How much money are you leaving on the table?????Part 2 "Getting Negative Items Deleted From A Credit Report - Fact or Fiction? Tips From The Experts - And Credit Repair Questions Answered" explains specifically WHY negative items are successfully DELETED from a credit file enabling the credit score to jump by leaps and bounds.
The Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution reads, in part, "No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law ..." We often hear that the United States Constitution guarantees that an accused is "..innocent until proved guilty.."
It is evident that the credit industry is drumming to their own beat!
Fact or Fiction????? - If a negative item is successfully deleted from my credit report, it will just come right back on my report.
The credit bureaus have cleverly spread this myth through the news media and government agencies. In truth, the credit bureaus will often temporarily delete a negative listing if they have not heard from the credit grantor for 30 days since an item has been disputed. Should the credit grantor submit verification a week or two later, it will be re-inserted. (This is called a soft delete.) Most of the time the creditor simply fails to respond and the negative item is permanently deleted. If the creditor verifies the item the account may still be deleted later in the process as the challenging process is intensified.
There are items such as bankruptcies, foreclosures, and tax liens that are impossible to remove from the credit report. Not True -
According to the Experts. there is no type of negative listing that has not been removed from a credit report thousands of times.
Before I continue; It is very important to point out that the purpose of this information is not intended to defend those who habitually do not pay their bills. My intent is to educate and provide solutions to a growing problem that is keeping many good people from getting ahead in life.
Unfortunately today, we live in a society that determines our net worth and value as human beings by our credit file. If your credit report is good, chances are you will partake in many of the better things in life. The complete opposite is true if your credit report is bad. Did you know that very few creditors will extend fair credit with blemishes on a credit history.
What if it wasn't your fault? What if you had to make the simple choice between eating and making a car payment? What if a job lay-off, medical emergency, or some other personal crises prevented you from making a timely payment? Should you be forced to pay for this for the next 7 to 10 years serving a credit prison sentence? I don't think so! Yes, there needs to be accountability,but not a decade or life sentence!
Think about it; How is a system like this allowed to operate in our democracy? The credit bureaus have placed themselves in the position of both judge and jury in relation to the consumers credit file. Do not forget one very important difference... A judge will give you a chance to defend yourself before ruling. We are supposed to have the opportunity in America to face our accusers before judgment is passed. This is entirely untrue when it comes to your credit records.
The truth is creditors and credit bureaus have been swapping information about behind the backs of comsumers and may I add, without permission, for a long, long time. In effect, it is hearsay and can cause severe economic hardship. Just look around. I see it every day.
The current system does not give one the opportunity to defend themselves before inscribing the credit file with negative and damaging information (even if it is not verified). Their perspective is that you must prove to them that the negative information on your credit report is incorrect, invalid, erroneous, or otherwise non-verifiable before they will remove it. In other words, in the eyes of the credit bureaus... you are guilty until proven innocent.
We are brought up to believe that one is innocent until proven guilty. Why we are not extended the same courtesy by the credit bureaus? Why do they not give us a chance to defend before placing negative information on a credit report? The simple fact is, consumer rights cost them money.
The sole focus of credit bureau companies is profit.
Your credit file is their product. Did you know that contrary to popular belief, the credit bureaus have no government affiliation, with the exception of spending millions on lobbying efforts. These private corporations sell your personal financial information to anyone that will pay for it...and the recipient generally accepts the information as gospel, and then reciprocate by giving back to the bureaus any information that they may have on you. . . and the cycle continues.
I hope this information has been useful and please look for the next article in this series titled :
