Establish Good Credit and Fix Bad Credit
Odds are there are negative items listed on your credit reports that do not belong there. By law, you have the right to dispute these negative items. Any negative listing you feel may be inaccurate, untimely, misleading, incomplete, ambiguous, unverifiable, biased or unclear ("questionable") can be disputed with the credit bureaus.
If the item cannot be verified, then it must be removed from your credit report.

What does it mean to fix bad credit?
Only a portion of the people looking for information about how to fix their credit realize how close to the truth they really are. Even though they may only be looking for a way to raise their credit scores, the fact of the matter is that in many cases, they are actually in need of fixing something that is broken. The credit system in this country is far from perfect and because of it, millions of Americans have credit scores that are not accurate assessments of their credit risk. In a word, their credit score is broken. Fixing their credit is exactly what they need to do.
Studies show that the majority of credit reports contain errors. Whether through clerical errors, mistaken identities, improper accounting, or simple misunderstandings, there are an estimated 200+ million Americans with errors on their credit reports. And in many cases, these errors are significant. As many as 25% of all credit reports contain errors serious enough to cause someone to be denied on a credit application.
So when talking about fixing bad credit, there is more to it than just trying to increase a credit score. It is about repairing the errors and omissions in your credit reports. Responsibly managing your credit will help you start working towards a better credit score, but truly fixing bad credit requires that you also focus on the source of the problem.
