First check with the BBB to see if this company has a good record. Once you have chosen a Debt Consolidation company, just realize that joining one will not damage your credit. The only negative affect that you will receive is that if your accounts are not close by the time you join this company they will instruct you to close these accounts. Closing an active account will decrease your credit score anywhere from 10-20 points for each bureau that this account is reported with. But, in the long run, if this is your only choice, this will help you increase your score once your debts are paid off in full.

Will having a payment plan with a collection agency greatly reduce your credit score?

No. Once a person is being threatened by a collection agency, there is a high liklihood that the damage to the credit report is already done - a chargeoff or collections transline will already be in your credit report. Having a payment plan merely gets the debt paid and on-time payments are usually NOT reported (however, if you miss a payment, that company can and will send a negative tradeline to further damage your credit reputation).

If you use credit card counseling services to pay off debt how does this affect your credit?

Typically when you use credit counseling services there has been damage done to your credit already. It affects your credit, but not as bad as if you are paying late all the time and struggling. Typically they help you settle your accounts and sometimes this "settling" l;owers your credit score. Answer 2: Problems that cause you to seek credit card counseling will definitely lower your credit score. But the fact that you used a credit card counselor to help you out of your debt should not negatively affect your credit score, if your credit company is following the Fair Isaac & Company. Fair Isaac is the company who developed the first scoring model which is used by most creditors today. There are companies who follow a different model and as unfair as it sounds, it can affect your credit score. For more information, check the link below.

What can the consumer do about an error the finance company made which could damage your credit?

If you find an error, the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires credit bureaus and organizations that provide information to them to correct the mistake. But you have to get the ball rolling by requesting an investigation. You can file a dispute online, by phone or by certified letter. A letter should include: * Your complete name, address, date of birth and social security number. * The name of the company you have a dispute with and account number of the disputed item. * The reason for your dispute, any corrections to your personal information and a request for correction. Before you fire off a letter, do some research and gather documentation to back up your claim. Disputed information that can't be verified must be deleted by the credit bureau. If an investigation isn't resolved in your favor, ask the credit bureau to include your version of the dispute in your record. Accurate negative information usually stays on a credit report for seven years -- ten years if you've filed for bankruptcy. If you know the blemish on your report is accurate, you'll have to live with it. The best way to repair your credit, says Rhode, is to keep paying your bills on time and start building a spotless record.
