Is there anything that will hurt or help my credit sweep?

Feel free to comment with previous experiences- if you have had credit repair before and something did or didn't work for you let us know!

There are a couple things that will help and hurt the credit sweep while its in process. Here are a few things:

1. Do NOT apply for credit while your sweep is in process.
2. As much as possible, do not allow any new accounts to appear - such as collections or other derogatory items - until the sweep has been completed.
3. Keep track of all your receipts- proof of mailing, post office receipts, etc. You will need these in the future and they will help your case if it goes to court.
4. Do not refresh your report more than once every 2 weeks.
5. Do not overload the bureaus with dispute letters. Send your letter and wait for the results before submitting the next round, (if necessary).
6. do not write more than 20 accounts per dispute letter, unless they are medical. With medical, there are no limits.
7. The dispute process must always follow the correct pattern. One CANNOT jump straight to the intent to sue.

There are many others, but this is just a start for the night!

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft?

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft? No, it's not. Most consumers have the wrong idea about what a credit sweep is and believe the 2 are the same but I'm here to clear this up for you! Identity theft: This is where you claim that all (or a few) items are resulting from identity theft and you attempt to get them blocked using section 605B of the FCRA within 4 business days. You must use an official police report and affidavit. Here's the DL on this: it doesn't work. Why? Because millions of consumers used this illegally even thought the debts actually belonged to them and now, even if you ARE a victim, it's almost impossible to get it done in 4 business days. A few months? Sure, if you have all the required documentation, dispute with the creditors as well and have supporting documentation. IF this method is used (either by the consumer or a credit repair company - with or without the consumer's knowledge), the items w
