Credit Repair Scam

From the fire into the frying pan…

"Is your credit less than golden?"

Who isn't tempted by the notion of a fresh start? Certainly, the 68 million score-able Americans with a bad or poor credit score (lower than 601), have thought about it. In fact, it may seem like just the thing you need to get your credit back on track. But beware. That telephone call promising credit repair and or a new credit identity are fraudulent scams that can put you in some serious trouble.

What You Should Know

The scam begins with a tempting offer to quickly and easily repair and improve your credit for a fee. Quick to ask for immediate payment prior to providing services, scammers make a point of mentioning all the great "things" you can buy with better credit (think of a new car, house or vacation). They will also promise a specific increase in your credit score or even guarantee the removal of negative credit information in your credit report.

Companies promising a "new credit identity" say they can help you hide bad credit history or bankruptcy for a fee. If you pay them, these companies will provide you with a nine-digit number that looks like a Social Security number. But BEWARE; this process is a scam and it's illegal! It's quite likely that they are selling stolen Social Security numbers, often those taken from children. By using a stolen number as your own, the con artists will have involved you in identity theft. Based on data and customer feedback, this scam is becoming more and more prevalent.

What you should do

The one who can fix your credit in the most effective way is you! If the company claims that can get rid of negative information in your credit report, walk away. No one can do this. Remember, no organization can remove negative credit information. It's a false promise! So, be cautious.
