A credit bureau letter is a letter intended for the credit bureau to let them know you are disputing a negative item or information on the credit report as per your credit repair business plan because it is incorrect, outdated, etc.
There are three major nationwide credit bureaus in the U.S.: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Credit bureaus are specific organizations that partner with all types of lending institutions and creditors to help them in their lending decisions.
They gather account details from companies you have financial accounts with third-party collection agencies and public records. All the information they’ve collected about you is combined into a credit report and sold to banks, financial institutions, insurance companies, and even you.
In their simplest form, credit bureaus are also known as credit reporting agencies.
If a borrower appears to be less creditworthy based on the credit bureaus report, they may be denied loans or charged a higher interest rate to compensate for the additional risk.
And as a credit repair service provider, if you find information on your customer’s credit report that you and your customer believe is inaccurate or incomplete, you may file a dispute with the credit bureau using the letters we have in the credit repair business plan.
