If you have credit problems, it’s a good idea to try to repair it. Not only will it help your business, but your personal finances as well (the lines are sometimes blurred though, aren’t they?) Understanding credit and the effects bad credit can have can be difficult for many to understand. So I asked a credit repair colleague to give me the deats. He says the 5 most common questions are:
* In what way will I be affected by my credit problems?
* Is it possible to repair my credit?
* How long does it take to repair my credit?
* I can repair my credit myself?
* What are the benefits of hiring a credit repair specialist?
First, if you have credit problems, you need to understand the effects this will have. Most creditors use credit scoring system (FICO Score), which gauges the risk that lenders or vendors or employers take when offering you money, or credit or a job. The lower your score, the greater the risk. If you have a low score, your application will most likely be denied him, and if approved, you most likely be charged a higher interest rate and you may get a shorter term. A low score can even make your higher insurance rates and bad credit can prevent you from being hired by some employers.
Second, you should know that credit repair is possible. There are several creditors, and even government agencies that disappoint people when they ask, “Is it possible to repair my credit?” True, your credit report contains your history and in many cases, history can not be deleted. However, many reports could be improved. Sometimes they have missing information or wrong information. Addressing these areas can improve your score.
Third, “How long will it take to repair my credit?” Your score can not be improved within 30 days. If you work the system, you’ll need at least 35 days to see some improvement. Over a period of six months, your score can be improved dramatically if erroneous info is found in your file.
Fourth, “I can repair my credit myself?” You can try to repair your credit yourself, however, there are lots of confusing things to try. Taking the accounts that are clearly not yours is easy. You must fill out a dispute form and if the creditor can not verify the account information within 30 days of investigation, it will be removed from your record by Credit Bureus.
If you don’t feel comfortable dealing with consumer rights issues, it’s likely could get better results by hiring a credit repair specialist. There are many benefits of working with a professional to repair your credit. He will have the necessary knowledge of the credit system and consumer protection laws and get them to work for you. This means less stress for you and more money in your pocket.
The online discount shopping company canceled their investor roadshow that would lead to their initial public offering. The reason for the cancellation is stock market volatility, the Wall Street Journal said on Tuesday.
The company is not canceling its long awaited IPO, but rather rethinking the ideal time for it, the paper said, quoting an unidentified source.
Groupon is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission because of a leaked memo discussing the company’s financial status during the IPO “quiet period”.
Analysts suggest Groupon’s IPO plans are stalled because it’s bleeding cash with their international expansion and marketing efforts and slowing growth in North America.
