send letter to the credit reporting agencies . they will have to send letter to the creditors who will have 30 days to respond. if they dont the debt has to be removed from your credit record.

There are no quick fixes to improving bad credit reports. The best thing is to slowly rebuild credit by paying bills on time, paying more than the minimum on credit cards, and avoiding common credit traps.

All 5 reports affect your credit. Companies look at the number of negative reports on a persons credit. The number of reports will affect your credit score. Companies do this in order to: a) Get their money b) basically persuade you to pay the balance.

Absolutely not. You'll have to contact each credit bureau and challenge each account. It's frustrating, but it's worth keeping your credit score up and your history clean.

Most likely the loan company won't accept it because to need a cosigner on a loan means that there is bad credit all ready. Two bad credit reports don't equal one good one. If you have bad credit it isn't a good idea anyway because you could end up with the loan and this will impact your credit report in a negative way.
