Chicago IL – The next step in your path to an improved credit score is to do what they say on the shampoo bottles: Rinse and Repeat.
In the Rinse and Repeat phase, you just keep working their system.
Here’s what I mean: You send in a dispute, maybe disputing the date that the account was opened, and the credit reporting bureau can’t verify it, and they pull the whole listing off your report!
You can’t keep submitting the same dispute reason over and over again to the bureau – they will view you as a nuisance and will dismiss your disputes as frivolous.
Also, don’t bombard these folks with your disputes – you won’t get the desired results. But, you can dispute information that needs to be verified. The suggested order of ways to dispute are:
- Not my account
- I didn’t pay late that month
- That is the wrong amount
- That is the wrong account number
- That is the wrong original creditor
- That is the wrong charge-off date
- That is the wrong date for the last activity on the account
- That is the wrong balance
- That is the wrong credit limit
10. That is the wrong status of the account
11. That is the wrong highest amount I owed at any time (High Credit Amount)
You can challenge the same listing on your credit report in the Rinse and Repeat phase. The first time, you might say “not my account” and the next time you would say “I was never late.”
You just never know when you’ll find the dispute that gets the listing taken off of your credit report. Send your dispute in, and let the 30 day clock run.
But, like I said before – don’t bombard them immediately after getting your results. Wait 60 days between disputes. Keep excellent records of your efforts. Be persistent, be insistent, and more than likely it will pay off.

Phil Buoscio, Better Living Realty – Buoscio Brokerage, Inc., and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
