Insider Etiquette: How To Stay in the Credit Bureau's Good Graces
Several of the credit bureaus have opened up their fax lines, (namely, Equifax and Transunion) but only to select consumers--only those a recent "confirmation number" or tracking number from a current credit report. In our ebook "Improve Your Credit Score In 24 Hours" we give you the fax numbers that credit bureaus keep secret. Since January 2003, we've sold 30,000 copies-this tremendous success has led to a high volume of unsolicited faxes from consumers, enough so that they have tightened their rules.
If you are in possession of a credit bureau fax number, either from us or from communication with a credit bureau, we'll outline the proper fax methods for you.
The ABCs of Faxing Your Way to Better Credit:
·Absolutely never send unsolicited faxes. You must include a confirmation number from a current credit report to fax the credit bureau.
·You only need to fax the credit bureau to get them something that you couldn't get them by phone or mail: usually a "deletion" or "collection paid" letter, clearing you of a bad credit item.
·Be sure to include required identification information. For Equifax for instance ID should include a photocopy of your driver's license and a copy of your social security card or a current utility bill.
·Always include your confirmation number. Comply with credit bureau faxing protocol by including a confirmation or tracking number from your current credit report.
By knowing when and how to fax the credit bureau, you can coordinate a quicker result when bettering your credit.
