How long can a creditor pursue your old debt?

Negative items on your credit report have serious consequences. First, they decrease your score — costing you a fortune w/high rates. The worst part?

If you have false, negative items on your report you can rebuild your credit —& an expert (like Credit Glory) makes it easy!

How to rebuild your credit after an old debt (& why a pro makes it easier)

The best tool to rebuild your credit is a dispute. You can dispute either DIY or w/help from a professional (like Credit Glory). Here is the process (& why working w/an expert is the easiest way).

Step 1: Check your credit report for inaccurate items

Disputing negative items starts with identifying inaccurate reporting. Wondering how to find errors? Look at the detailed info for negative items from all 3 credit reports. Sound like too much work? An expert like Credit Glory quickly finds mistakes, making the process a breeze.

Step 2: Write a dispute letter

There are several options for drafting a dispute letter. You can start from scratch — or find a template online. The tricky part is finding a legit template — especially when Google gives over 74 million search results! On the other hand, a partner like Credit Glory handles this for you, removing the headache.

Step 3: Collect supporting docs

If you can find a legit sample letter, you need to clearly state your name, address, and what you are disputing. Then collect all relevant documents to support your claim. The catch? Make sure you send copies — not originals. Optionally, Credit Glory makes this easier, knowing exactly what to send (& where to send it).

Step 4: Wait for a decision

If you manage to write a letter, compile the documents, and find out where to send your letter — the last step is waiting for results. Assuming you did everything perfectly, the dispute results are sent to you in writing. The result? After a long wait — sometimes months — the record may be removed. If you let Credit Glory help, you have access to support throughout the whole dispute process.
