Why are there fees associated with credit sweeps and why do I have to pay upfront?

Question of the day: Why are there fees associated with credit sweeps and why do I have to pay upfront?

I've been asked this today on 5/30 calls so far, so let's talk about it.

The question really should be: who should pay for your fees and when should they be due?

Why pay upfront:
Due to the nature of this business, clients are already pre-disposed to not paying bills and a % of clients do not even pay for services rendered and face legal consequences. Therefore, clients must pay for a portion of cost upon sign up as well as Initial Audit billable hours.

Small fee breakdown:

Fees associated with processing a credit sweep initially and per month:
Client Portal
Certified Mail

Time to process 1 Initial Audit (1st 4 days after sign up):
6-10 hours depending on severity of credit file and research involved

Time to process a credit file per month:
1-5 hours depending on severity of credit file, responses received from bureaus and/or creditors,  research required, complaints made to CFPB and/or AG

Average # of texts per month received from each client:
Average # of emails per month received from each client:
Average # of calls per month received from each client:

Average success rate: 95%

If services by Expert Credit Sweeps were to be calculated by the $ saved per file, the average cost at 15% would be $14250. Instead, it's less than $1000 in total. 

By comparison, the entire cost should be paid upfront given the amount of work involved and expense to process each file. That's not what ECS is about, though!

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
