Fixing Errors on a Credit Report
Nobody can legally remove accurate and timely negative information from a credit report. But the law does allow you to request a reinvestigation of information in your file that you dispute as inaccurate or incomplete. There is no charge for this, so you may want to go the self-help route and consider credit repair independently. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act you are entitled to a free copy of your credit report if you've been denied a loan, charge card, insurance, or job within the last 60 days. If your application is denied because of information supplied by a bureau or reporting agency, the company you applied to must provide you with that bureau or agency's name, address, and telephone number.
You can dispute mistakes or outdated items for free. Ask the reporting agency for a dispute form or submit your dispute in writing, along with any supporting documentation. Do not send them original documents. Clearly identify each item in your report that you dispute, explain why you dispute the information, and request a reinvestigation. If the new investigation reveals an error, you may ask that a corrected version of the report be sent to anyone who received your report within the past six months.
Job applicants can have corrected reports sent to anyone who received a report for employment purposes during the past two years. When the reinvestigation is complete, the reporting agency must give you the written results and a free copy of your report if the dispute results in a change. If an item is changed or removed, the credit bureau cannot put the disputed information back in your file unless the information provider verifies its accuracy and completeness, and the credit bureau gives you a written notice that includes the name, address, and phone number of the provider. You also should tell the creditor or other information provider in writing that you dispute an item.
Many providers specify an address for disputes. If the provider then reports the item to any bureau or reporting agency, it must include a notice of your dispute. In addition, if you are correct - that is, if the information is inaccurate - the information provider may not use it again. If the reinvestigation does not resolve your dispute, have the credit bureau include your version of the dispute in your file and in future reports. Remember, there is no charge for a reinvestigation.
A satisfied judgment can be taken off your credit, if it is inaccurate. If the judgment is yours, it will remain for the full reporting period allowed by law.
Here is more advice:
It should be removed automatically after seven years, but even a judgment that's satisfied can't be removed before then. Your credit history - the good and bad - is reported for a period of seven years.
I went through the same situation with a satisfied judgment that wasnt updated by the plaintiff. However, I found the credit bureaus helpful b/c I was able to go online and dispute it through annualcreditreport.com along with other stuff I know I paid. They updated it within a week and I had about 5 accounts updated (even some I know I still owed) I pays to stay on top of your credit, some companies may change names, lenders, go out of business (you never know) So, my advice is to dispute it on your credit report. Anyway, Good Luck with your lawsuit.
I agree with the above. I recently disputed a judgment that was satisfied but it wasn't being reported that way and they just deleted it.
A satisfied judgment should stay on your credit report for 7 years from the last activity. It can only be removed by the court that placed in on your credit report or by the credit bureau reporting it. You can request to both to verify the account is yours and if they judgment is not verified it can be removed.
A satisfied judgment does not have to stay on for 7 years at all. This is a myth. You must understand the law. It states that derogatory entries can stay on your report for 7 years, not mandatory that it will. The key is can stay on!! That part of the FCRA is in place for people who do not check there credit regularly. So it gives a limit to the holder of the debt or plaintiff to pursue resolution to get debt paid!!! To get removed all you have to do is get notice from original plaintiff that through the courts the debt has been paid. They will acknowledge this and get you a statement letter of satisfaction. Take that letter to the court that rendered the Judgement and they will update. The next step is in writing contact the Credit Bureaus and show cause for a dispute! The cause will be that per the original plaintiff the derogatory entry should be moved. They will have to investigate this for you and when they call the original plaintiff they will not respond and the Bureau will remove within 31 days. I have helped people get over 20 judgments removed this way!
If every country currency started at the same time with a 1 to 1 exchange rate to others, you could say that since that time, a country with a more expensive currency has had a stronger economy, more or less.
However, this is not the case. Exchange rates are fixed at various times in history and they can change at any moment if the government decides to do it.
For instance, for those two currencies, here are the exchange rates to the US dollar over some years:
"Currency Code 2000 1990 1980 1970 1960 1950
Indian Rupee INR 44.942 17.505 7.8629 7.5 4.7619 4.7619
Japanese Yen JPY 107.76 144.79 226.74 360 360 361.1 "
This gives following value of the Indian rupie in yen over the years:
2000 1990 1980 1970 1960 1950
2.40 8.27 28.84 48.00 75.60 75.83
So if one Indian rupie is 2.40 yen in 2000, it was 75.83 yen in 1950. Since that time, it has always lost in value in comparison to the yen.

Generally, after seven years most information must be deleted from your credit reports with the exception of bankruptcies which can be reported for up to 10 years.
Here are more opinions and answers from other WikiAnswerers:
Any account included in a bankruptcy remains on your personal credit report for a maximum of 7 years from the date the bankruptcy was filed. The bankruptcy itself, listed in the public record information section of a credit report, remains for either 7 years from the filing date if it was a Chapter 13, or 10 years from the filing date if it was a Chapter 7, 11 or 12. Source: Experian
A bankruptcy can be removed from your credit report. I know two people who have done it.Basically how credit repair like this works is you, or attorneys you hire, challenge negative marks on your credit report. The Fair Credit Reporting Act - - gives you the right to dispute anything on your credit report. Once the credit reporting agency contacts the creditor to verify the account they have 30 days to respond with verification. If they do not respond the mark is removed. If they do respond you can challenge again and ask for real proof. I don't know the details of what is required but it can get to the point where they have to provide signed contracts, a list of all payments and bills, etc. What usually happens is the creditor does not respond and it is removed. The same is true of a bankruptcy, often the court does not get the information to the credit reporting agency so the bankruptcy is removed.That doesn't mean they can definitely remove a bankruptcy, or anything else. They may or may not. Obviously if the mark on your credit is not accurate it is a lot easier to have taken care of. I had credit issues caused by id theft that I was unable to do much about, but a credit repair agency quickly removed all the negative items and increased my score over 200 points. I know others who had legitimate bad marks, they seem to be able to get most of them removed but not all.
Of course, this doesn't remove the actual bankruptcy, or any debts owed. It just removes them from your credit reports
yes. it is average. anthing above 700 is considered good.
I hope by free you mean that you don't have to pay real money. If so, there are some people in the game that have a lot of money, and will be willing to get some credit onto your account for a trade inside the game.
Scoring is a system creditors use to help determine whether you will be able to pay your future bills on time.
Information about you and your financial experiences, such as your bill-paying history, the number and type of accounts you have, late payments, collection actions, outstanding debt, and the age of your accounts, is collected from your application and your credit report.
Using a statistical program, creditors compare this information to the past performance of consumers with similar profiles. A scoring system awards points for each factor that helps predict who is most likely to repay a debt. A total number of points -- a credit score -- helps predict how creditworthy you are, that is, how likely it is that you will repay a loan and make the payments when due.
Because your credit report is an important part of many credit scoring systems, it is very important to make sure it's accurate before you submit an application. To get copies of your report, contact the three major reporting agencies, Equifax, Experian (formerly TRW), and Trans Union.
A credit score is based on real data and statistics, so it usually is more reliable than subjective or judgmental methods. It treats all applicants objectively. Judgmental methods typically rely on criteria that are not systematically tested and can vary when applied by different individuals.
To develop a credit score model, a creditor selects a random sample of its customers, or a sample of similar customers if their sample is not large enough, and analyzes it statistically to identify characteristics that relate to creditworthiness.
Then, each of these factors is assigned a weight based on how strong a predictor it is of who would be a good risk. Each creditor may use its own scoring model, different scoring models for different types of loans, or a generic model developed by a scoring company.
Under the law, a credit score may not take into account certain characteristics � such as race, sex, marital status, national origin, or religion � as factors. However, creditors are allowed to use age in properly designed scoring systems. But any scoring system that includes age must give equal treatment to elderly applicants.
How embarrassing! It is more like a red flag (to you) that you have an issue with the credit card company. It could be in error, but it may also mean that you have met or exceeded your limit. Contact the credit card company as soon as possible to solve the issue.
No they do not. And they will repo your car if you are too far behind. They may tell you that they will repossess your car if you are 10 days late, but it is a tactic used to scare you. They would loose more money trying to repo your car than waiting on your payment after 10 days.
Here are the lyrics. (To the best of my knowledge)
A young man with ambition met an old man at the top
Asked him if he had a secret and the old man stopped and thought and said
FREE 'cause it's how it oughta be, my brotha
CREDIT 'cause you need a loan for one thing or another
SCORE 'cause they break it down to one simple number that you can use
DOT to take a break 'cause the name is kinda long
COM an honor of the internet that it's on
put it all together at the end of the song it gives you free credit score.com and I'm done
According to SmartMoney.com:
"Scores above 700 indicate a relatively low credit risk, according to Fair Isaac, while scores below 600 indicate relatively high risk and may result in credit denial or elevated interest rates."
4. National Origin
6. Marital Status
7. Age (provided that the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract
8. Receipt of income from any public assistance program
9. Good faith exercise of any rights under the Consumer Protection Act
If you have a credit application denied, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act requires creditors to specify why � if you ask. For example, the creditor must tell you whether you were denied because you have "no credit file" with a credit reporting agency (CRA) or because the CRA says you have "delinquent obligations." The ECOA also requires creditors to consider additional information you might supply about your credit history. You may want to find out why the creditor denied your application before you contact the CRA.
To go along with the Consumer Protection Act, here are summaries of the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. When combined these Acts make our consumer rights. For more information visit the Related Link.
Yes. there are several ways to buy a home with bad credit. one of them is to homeowner financing, you can find deals on the newspapers, craigslist, and many other sources of information.Also, through an real estate investor, the real estate investor qualifies you as long as you have enough money for the downpayment, expect higher interest rate than the convencional loans, and as long as you pay your new mortgage for some time (about two years), on time you can renegotiate, refinance, through a financial institution other than the investor. either you are ready or not to buy a house the smart thing to do is to fix your Fico score. Learn everything you can about creative financing, real estate vocabulary, contact a real estate agent and ask for advise. Remember the more informed you are, the more likely you will get a better deal.
Credit information is forwarded to the three major credit reporting agencies by lenders and creditors, so the exact reporting varies. Usually it is reported monthly. This makes it important for consumers to have access to credit information on a regular basis.
Paying off collections, especially older collections, will drop your FICO score initially. In the long term, of course, your score will be much better off, and some collection companies may even delete their trade line all together once payment is received, but do not count on this. If you need points in a hurry (applying for a home/car loan), do NOT start paying collections off. You will be doing yourself a grave disservice. Wait until the deal is done and pay these off either at closing or after the transaction is completed.
Finally, one recent 30 day late will drop a FICO score by approx. 50 points - a considerable sum, regardless of account type. Most people make the common mistake of refinancing their mortgage and skipping their last payment, thinking the deal will be done before anyone will notice the delinquency and saving themselves a mortgage payment. THIS IS A MISTAKE! I have seen many people lose their approvals (and thus their loans) because of this, and the results are quite devastating.

No. If the account has been closed, you would need to re-apply if you wanted an account.
Simply contact the immigration office where the I-797 come from and they will fix it.
An investigative credit report is one that goes beyond a typical credit report, with more detail. It might include very personal details such as your reputation and personal character. They get this through interviews with neighbors, friends, business associates, etc.
Credit? No. But if you crashed the rental car, then stopped payment on it you could be arrested and/or sued.
** sure it would- the company can send you to collections and that would be on your report- affecting your credit.
An "investigative consumer report" is a detailed form of a credit report that involves interviews with your neighbors or acquaintances about your lifestyle, character, and reputation.
Investigative consumer reports may be used in connection with insurance and employment applications. You'll be notified in writing when a company orders such a report. The notice will explain your right to request certain information about the report from the company you applied to. If your application is rejected, you may get additional information from the credit reporting agency (CRA). However, the CRA does not have to reveal the sources of the information.
