Why Does the Sweep Take 45-60 Business Days to See Results?

I've gotten this question a few times this week, although the answer is posted right on the website. I decided to specifically do a post for this question.

Why does the sweep take 45-60 business days to see guaranteed results?

Let's break this down:
The bureaus have 30 days to deliver your results - delete or verify. It is either 30 days or 30 business days depending on where the credit report was obtained. The accounts that the bureaus "verify" have the be challenged again, due to the fact that they will not send the required physical proof for validation.

We take action according to the results. This is when the 2nd round happens. Our method does take awhile, but is guaranteed to work.

We have many ways to remove the negative items
There are different ways to delete these undesirable accounts. I will not give away our secrets, but it is quite simple to understand:

First is the debt validation with physical proof
We also remove them by disputing other reported elements such as:
Balance, date, comments, inconsistent from report to report, re-aging violation, address, phone number, etc.

The bureaus always violate the FCRA
Clients are afforded protection under the FCRA, and the bureaus violate these laws frequently. These are the laws which are used to remove the negative accounts. There are times in which clients must send an intent to sue for items to be removed, but if the bureaus find themselves in that position, they do sometimes remove the accounts just to avoid court.

If they still do not provide the physical proof, or are still in violation, the client can then file a suit with the court. In 99% of the cases, the client will be contacted by state representative for the bureau, who will then settle financially to keep it out of court.

This is why we have to follow a specific program. We produce results!!

Don't be fooled by those companies who promise short sweeps - these are only temporary and will reappear after a short time period.  Our deletions are permanent.

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
