These videos are great. I have seen the ads where people are claiming they can turn your negative credit into a positive, for a nominal fee of course, and I have always wondered if they were truthful. Maybe it is best to take that money and pay down the debt that is holding your credit back. I hope to never have to fight any inaccuracies on my credit but I will follow this advice if I am put in that position.

It might take a long time, and it might take several requests, but being persistent will pay off for you, if there are inaccuracies in your credit report! Don't give up!

I think obtaining annual credit reports from the credit reporting agencies is very important. The sooner an inaccurate negative item is found, the sooner it can hopefully be resolved and taken off.

I've had to do this! Being persistent paid off in my case, when there were some incorrect items being reported. The credit agencies removed these and my credit score improved immediately.
