If someone had asked me what is the simplest, most overlooked technique to quality credit repair, my answer would likely surprise them: certified mail. Certified mail is the most underrated, underutilized aspect of credit repair. Most credit repair companies don’t employ certified mail (read about 98% here). If it works so well then why don’t they use it? Money – plain and simple. Certified mail is very expensive and other credit repair companies would rather make a few extra bucks or try to undercut each others’ prices for the cheapest service rather than use certified mail and get better results for the client!
But the Benefits of certified mail clearly outweigh the costs, at least in my opinion. Regular mail can get easily lost in the shuffle, set aside in a mailroom, not to be touched for weeks or even months! Especially when you're dealing with big corporations who get thousands of letters each week! But sending a letter certified make sure someone actually takes it in hand and signs for it, making it more likely to be responded to in a timely fashion. Plus, if a company fails to respond, they can't claim they never recieved a letter. They signed for it!
