Credit repair refers to the simple process of identifying the errors in a credit report, and giving ways in which it can be solved, or solving it for you at a cost. 

Although a credit report may not always require to checked, and most of the times it is usually error free, the law still dictates that it be done. There are two ways to do this. One includes the do it yourself way, and the other one, is where you forward your credit report to a credit repair company.

 However, not all the companies are as good as they claim to be. Out there, there is credit repair sites scam, where the company is usually more focused on how it can con you, than how it can help you. 

 

TIPS:

The monthly cost for credit repair services is generally in the same area.
