Has anyone used a credit repair company
I see Lexington Law advertised here and I have also noticed some posts about crednolgy. I have already been ripped off by a debt resolution company and can't afford to be ripped off again but I need to repair my credit as fast as possible.

There are a few

Lexington law is the biggest advertiser, but the one in business longest is sky blue credit out of Boca Raton, FL.

Then you got A Clean Slate Credit Consultants out of Florida as well but this is a nonprofit specialized in serving military and low/fixed income people. They file online whereas the other do the letter disputes (which is fine so long as they don't limit your disputes , otherwise you will pay for months on end)

Now the thing to know is you can do things yourself, all that is required is some education on the matter. That's it. ACSCC (the Florida nonprofit) has the DIY dispute codes and the sample letters, so you don't have to pay anyone for a letter.

They also are the only transparent company out there, with 10 pages of links and laws and other nonprofits. So while many say they are legit they are full of it. View your options. Go with who you want but know your rights, because many say they follow the laws but charge to create files and audits (to look at files) and that is illegal if it exceeds about 40 bucks, which most do anyway.

And remember, knowing is half the battle, so know your rights.

I would stay away from Credit Repair if at all possilbe.  They are a scam. Also, debt consolodation/resolution can help you a little financially, but it totally screws over your credit.

I myself went through Crednology and my credit situation has gotten tremendously better! There is no overnight fix, but they have things no one else has and they work with the Bureaus, not against them... their number is 706-623-0580.... ask for Trey or Troy, it's something like that.

Reliant Credit Repair

Helpful to 63 out of 174 people

Best company i've seen thus far and when I ask them about the other competitors bashing them they keep it super professional, which I like. They referred me to their compliance center where they do have all the laws posted. They also offered me a major discount for joining from Credit Karma. They are thorough, friendly, knowledgeable, and transparent. Cant beat that!
