Why credit repair takes so much longer than a credit sweep

"Why does credit repair take so long? Is a credit sweep faster?"

Yes! Regular credit repair (what I call "credit repair 101") can take 3 years! Who has 3 years to fix their credit file? Geez, in 3 years I could have 2 more kids and get another college degree!

More aggressive credit repair companies can get it done in a much faster manner, but it's still nothing compared to what a credit sweep does for you. Wouldn't you rather maximum deletions in the least amount of time, while also saving $1000s and sometimes even $100,000s?

Here's the deal:
A credit sweep is NOT the "identity theft" method. That means no police report or FTC report (affidavit). No charges for filing a false report or the inevitable credit bureau denials.

What it IS:
The fastest method to get the negative items off of your credit report permanently.  This includes disputing with all parties: bureaus, creditors and collection agencies. It may also include making complaints with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, attorney general or even the BBB. If the creditors or collection agencies delete the items, then you also do not owe that money back due to the inability to verify (that's where you save the money!!).

Time difference:
Credit repair 101 - 3 years
Credit sweep - 6 months (in some cases, 30-90 days)

If you'd like to save yourself time and money, as well as avoid needless headaches, your best bet is to give us a call today. Not tomorrow. Not next week or month. Waiting another 30 days is just 1 more month of collection phone calls, letters and harrassment. It's more confidence lost and money falling out of your pocket.

If we can't help you we won't take on your credit file. Period.

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
