Frequently Asked Questions
Why does a potential employer want to see your credit report?
It's not an invasion of privacy, in fact, it's perfectly legal, although many privacy and consumer advocates don't think it's fair to confuse professional qualifications with credit history. But employers take a different stance. They maintain that a credit report is simply one way to judge a persons character, which can be very important depending on the job.
For example, if the position requires involvement in finances, bookkeeping or money-handling, an applicant's credit history may reflect on their qualifications or suitability for the position. It's also easy to see where an individual's credit report may be checked for positions requiring high security clearance, handling of valuables or jewelry, or knowledge of trade secrets.
Can Credit Repair Companies be Trusted?
Many "credit repair" companies claim to remove negative credit with the flick of a wrist. Their advertisements make bold assertions and money-back guarantees: "Bankruptcy, tax liens, judgments... no problem!! One hundred percent guaranteed!! Credit report 100% cleared in 30 days!!" Can they really make such sweeping guarantees?
While some credit repair companies are outright frauds, others are not fraudulent and they use the dispute process to obtain impressive results. In fact, they delete thousands of questionable credit listings every day.
Unfortunately, it is risky to trust anyone to help you restore your credit. It is estimated that fraudulent credit repair companies have bilked Americans out of more than fifty million dollars. The majority of credit repair companies were started by entrepreneurs with a penchant for marketing. Consumers have flocked to these "credit doctors" only to discover that their advertisements proved far more impressive than their results. Hiring a credit repair company is like playing Russian roulette. Many of them are effective and legitimate, but it is difficult to tell a rip-off from the real article.
What do you need a credit repair company to do for you?
A good place to start when determining which credit repair company is best for you is to figure out what needs to be done to improve your credit. The process of repairing your credit can involve much more than simply disputing your credit with the credit bureaus. You should make sure to use a credit repair company that can fulfill all of your credit needs.
