The History of Credit Repair

In the past, up until about 1992, having negative items removed from your credit report was as simple as requesting a copy of the report, circling the item you wanted to be removed and then writing “This is not mine” next to it and about 30 days later the credit bureau would notify you via mail that the disputed item had been deleted. It didn’t matter if the item really belonged to you or not.

Back then, if one credit bureau removed an item from your credit report, they would automatically notify the other two bureaus and they’d just follow suit and remove the derogatory items from their listings as well, without even bothering to launch their own investigation into the matter. Those were the good old days!

Today, however, having a negative item removed from your credit report can be a very daunting task. It doesn’t matter if the credit report entry is inaccurate or doesn’t legally belong to you. Getting it removed can be a nightmare. But luckily for you, I’ve been removing negative items from credit reports for over 30 years. If you have a question, just ask.
