Credit Report Dispute Letter - Sample

If you have reviewed your credit report and believe that some of the information it contains may be inaccurate, you can legally dispute it via mail or, for faster results, the Internet. Once notified of a mistake on your report, a credit bureau has thirty days to investigate and respond. If the information can't be confirmed, then the item(s) should be removed.

For items that cannot be resolved online or that require copies of official paperwork or other supporting documents, use the sample Credit Report Dispute Letter below as a guide. Be sure to mail your letter and documents via Certified Mail for your records.

Word of Caution: Not all creditors report to all three credit bureaus; so be sure to only dispute a derogatory item to the credit bureau that is reporting that item. Otherwise you risk having that negative item added to the reports that are not currently showing them.

If you need any help, don't hesitate to give us a call. We'll be glad to assist you or to provide a referral to credit repair professionals you can trust.
