604 dispute letters are one way you can try and improve your credit. The easiest way? Working with a reputable credit repair company like Credit Glory. They identify and dispute errors on your credit report for you (boosting your score!).
What is a 604 dispute letter?
Negative items hurt your credit, but if you have checked your credit report and found errors, a dispute letter can get them removed. A 604 dispute letter asks credit bureaus to remove errors from your report that fall under section 604 of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). While it might take some time, it's a viable option to protect your credit and improve your score.
Common errors to look for
While you can't dispute verified debts, you can dispute errors on your report. Finding inaccuracies can be tricky, so what do you look for? Common areas to check for errors include:
- Personal information
- Inaccuracies w/account status
- Fraudulent accounts
- Balance errors
- Data mistakes
So how can a 604 dispute letter help, and how effective is it?
A 604 dispute letter can be a good strategy for removing errors hurting your credit score. Here are some of the ways it can help:
- Easy to do - Writing a 604 dispute letter is easy, and you get one sent in very little time. You can even find templates online to help you get started.
- Credit agencies have to investigate - The FCRA requires credit bureaus to investigate your claim w/in 30 days. Once the investigation is over, you should see the results w/in 5 days.
- Can get negative items removed - If credit bureaus find the items you identified as inaccurate, they remove them. Removing errors improves your credit, giving you a better score.
However, dispute letters don't always guarantee success. You might find:
- The debt gets verified - What you thought was an error could get verified by credit bureaus. That means the negative mark stays on your credit report.
- It's a long process - If you're applying for a loan and are on a deadline, a month is a long time. Waiting for the investigation to finish can put a wrench in your plans.
