BadCredit.org Features Lexington Law Firm as a Leading Advocate & Most Trusted Credit Repair Service

This post was originally featured on BadCredit.org:
Lexington Law — The Leading Advocates & Most Trusted Credit Repair Service Since 1991

Many important financial commitments in life require good credit, including owning a home, being approved for a loan, and buying a car. So what are you to do when your credit history prohibits you from attaining life’s necessities because of mistakes and errors on your report?

The obvious solution is to improve your credit, but that could take years if done on your own, and some of us can’t wait that long. And credit is a fickle beast. There are several ever-changing laws and regulations surrounding the credit industry, and for the average person, understanding all of them is insuperable.

Lexington Law, based in North Salt Lake, Utah, has been advocating for individuals who have mistakes on their credit report for a number of years. Lexington’s team of lawyers and paralegals understand these laws and regulations and they have represented hundreds of thousands of clients who have worked to correct their credit reports and improve their scores.

Lexington Law’s Directing Attorney Expresses Deep Gratitude For All United States Service Members While Responding to Reports on Credit Issues Devastating Military Consumers

shutterstock_177220931

Call made this Veterans Day for adequate safeguards to protect military credit ratings 

North Salt Lake, UT – November 11, 2015 – John Heath, directing attorney for Lexington Law Firm, a consumer advocacy law firm and trusted leader in credit report repair, today expressed his firm’s profound appreciation of all United States service members on this Veterans Day. Heath also responded to a call made by U.S. Senators this past week concerning identity theft and other issues plaguing military credit ratings.

According to the report from InvestmentNews, there is an active discussion amongst U.S. Senators, who stated in a letter to the Defense Department, “It is unreasonable to think that a country would send its men and women overseas to defend our national security without equipping these brave service members with the adequate safeguards to protect their finances and their credit.”

Heath agrees, stating, “We are the beneficiaries of the sacrifices made by our service men and women. Lexington Law has created a focus track designed specifically for our military and their families to educate and help alleviate credit reporting issues.” Heath continued, “Credit concerns, particularly those created by identity theft, are especially tragic for those who sacrifice so much for us back home.”

Thieves continue to take advantage of service members on deployment using their identity and credit to open accounts with the intention of never paying them back. A 2014 Federal Trade Commission study found that military consumers reported falling victim to identity theft twice the rate of the general population.

Heath recommends that service members anticipating deployment greater than 90-days place an Active Duty Alert on their credit reports. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) created this alert as an identity theft measure for military members. Once engaged, the alert will remain active for one year. Heath also encourages service members to actively monitor credit reports, checking specifically for unknown accounts or charges.

A free credit report can be ordered annually at www.annualcreditreport.com, while Lexington Law Firm provides free credit consultations by calling 1-800-294-7695.

Lexington Law’s Consumer Education Specialist Reminds EMV Credit Card Users to Stay Vigilant and Protect Credit

Chip cards strengthen in-store shopping security while online card fraud projected to spike

North Salt Lake, UT – October 28, 2015 – The U.S. payment industry is slowly transitioning to EMV (Europay, MasterCard and Visa) technology, making in-store fraud more difficult to commit, while potentially increasing the possibility of online fraud. Dr. Randy Padawer, Consumer Education Specialist for Lexington Law, a consumer advocacy law firm and trusted leader in credit report repair, warns consumers to stay vigilant when using credit cards.

While countries around the world have been using EMV technology for years, the U.S. is just now adopting the use of cards with microprocessor chips as opposed to magnetic stripe technology. EMV cards in the U.S. will not, however, contain the additional safety measure of a PIN. Essentially, the technology will protect only the number on the front of a credit card or debit card, not the cardholder’s signature on the back of the card, which can be more susceptible to credit fraud.

“EMV cards are designed to provide additional fraud-protection, but that does not mean that consumers should be less attentive when it comes to credit fraud and the havoc it can inflict on one’s credit score,” said Padawer. “The lack of a PIN can leave cardholders open to online fraud in particular, and with the holiday shopping season at our heels, consumers need to be especially alert to criminal activity.”

According to a recent article in Internet Retailer Magazine, “retailers can expect a doubling of online card fraud because criminals will turn to e-commerce to get around a tougher in-store card-payment system,” says consulting firm Aite Group.

Credit card fraud can be an unfamiliar charge found on your credit card statement or noticing that a new line of credit has been opened in your name. Padawer recommends scrutinizing monthly bills and statements to make sure no unrecognized transactions are listed. If a cardholder does suspect unusual activity, he advises to first confirm the breach. Once confirmed, find out exactly what information has been stolen, cancel the card, and reset all passwords. Moving forward, all card statements should be monitored closely and a credit report should be pulled and examined thoroughly for errors or fraudulent activity.

Padawer adds, “The reality remains that credit breaches will occur despite best efforts to secure personal information. Cardholders should educate themselves on how to spot fraudulent activity, and if they are unable to clear any resulting damaged credit on their own, they should seek professional assistance.”

Lexington Law’s Directing Attorney Points to Strong Economy and Job Growth as Fed Meeting Looms

Pending rate hike “doesn’t mean too much” for credit cards, more risky for mortgages

North Salt Lake City, UT – September 16, 2015 – There is mounting speculation that despite turbulent markets, The Fed will move forward with the first interest rate increase since June 29, 2006. John Heath, Directing Attorney for Lexington Law, a consumer advocacy law firm and trusted leader in credit report repair, points to a strong economy and steady job growth, with a potential rate hike of 0.25% having little impact on consumers.

The Labor Department reported that U.S. employment rose by 215,000 jobs in July and the unemployment rate held steady at 5.3 percent. The report was forecast to show employers adding 223,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate was expected to remain at 5.3 percent, said analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, according to the International Business Times.

“The United States economy is good, job growth continues, but world markets aren’t so strong right now – which may cause the Fed to delay an imminent hike,” said John Heath. “While an interest rate hike of a quarter percent, which changes to about 21 cents per $1,000 dollars borrowed on a credit card per month, is just not a dramatic increase, consumers should take note and prepare for inevitable upcoming hikes.”

Credit card rates are only marginally impacted by these incremental changes, but a Federal interest rate increase can make a significant difference with mortgage rates, where larger sums of money are borrowed and paid over extended amounts of time. Heath recommends that consumers “take a hard look” at their credit scores now in order to prepare for any future rate hikes, which may upset personal finances and budgets.

“Improving your credit score can actually level off any rate hikes while maximizing your buying power,” said Heath. “Higher credit scores may qualify for loans with lower rates, which could ultimately offset the interest increase. Now may be a good time for consumers to begin a course of credit repair to address unfair, inaccurate and unsubstantiated items that may be depressing their credit scores.”

The Federal Open Market Committee will hold a two-day meeting this month, followed by a September 17th news conference by the Fed chairwoman, Janet L. Yellen, during which a rate hike, or hold, is expected to be announced.
