In today's world, having a bad credit report may be detrimental. Even though in most cases consumers have brought this upon themselves, in some cases the bad credit report may be caused by a glitch in the credit bureau system. As up to 25% of credit reports have a substantial error that can affect the consumer in getting credit, housing or a job. Although, some may feel helpless against the unperfected credit bureau system, that is far from the truth.

Every person should order a credit report at least once a year, it is free on annualcreditreport.com. This report should be carefully examined for mistakes and biased information. Once a mistake is found the credit bureau should be contacted through certified mail, explaining the mistake. The creditor that reported the information to the bureau should also be contacted by mail, stating the mistake that was found. The Fair Credit Report Act mandates credit bureau to delete all incorrect information that may be on the report. Therefore once the credit bureau receives your letter disputing the mistake within the report, it will investigate the glitch by contacting the creditor and trying to verify the credit report. If the creditor does not respond in time or if he does not verify the information on the original report then the bureau will delete the erroneous information from the report.

Furthermore, if your credit report displays information that you feel is biased towards you, you can add an explanatory note explaining the situation. For example, if you moved to another address while your bills kept coming to your old address, causing impairment to your credit score, you can add a note to your credit report explaining that situation. Just write a note to the bureau explaining that you would like such a note included on the report. Sometimes an easier route to fixing your credit report is by contacting the creditor that reported the problem to your credit bureau and asking them to clear up the glitch, by contacting the bureau.

No matter which approach you take to fixing your credit report you need to make sure that the mistake has been fixed by getting a subsequent credit report. Remember if the credit report gets a letter notifying them of a glitch, they have to investigate it, and if they can't verify the original report then they have to delete the information. By taking control of your credit reportFree Reprint Articles, you can begin to change your financial picture.
