A settlement letter is generally a written offer from your creditors to pay off your debt for less than you owe. However, before you agree to a settlement you need to verify the debt is actually yours. What if it isn't? Don't sign a settlement and dispute their claims. If you need help disputing, team up with the experts at Credit Glory and simplify the process.
What you need to consider before signing a settlement letter.
A settlement letter is a way you can pay off outstanding debt for less than you owe. Sounds like a no-brainer right? Not so fast, before you sign any settlement letter you need to verify that the debt is actually yours and reported correctly. If it isn't you can dispute the inaccurate record and wipe it from your credit report. Sound difficult? It can be if you dispute DIY, but you could team up with an expert — like Credit Glory — and simplify the process.
When is a debt inaccurate?
Debts are inaccurate IF your info is reported incorrectly.
Common incorrect info includes:
- Names and addresses
- The reported balance
- Duplicate records
- Delinquency dates
If one (or more) items on this list aren't correct, it's your right to dispute their claim — and Credit Glory's experience can make it a lot easier!
How to dispute and boost your credit (& why a pro makes it easier)
The best tool to erase an inaccurate debt 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.
