How we count removals
The number of items removed represents the combined removals of all clients for all three credit bureaus that occur during the client’s representation. For example, if a single questionable negative item is removed from all three reports, it is counted as three separate removals.
What you need to know about our testimonials
Testimonials represent the results of the particular individual and you should not expect the same result because your case is different than everyone else's. Lexington promises only to communicate with creditors on your behalf and in your name, verify report changes with bureaus, and provide you timely information about changes in your reports.
How we calculate score improvement
The credit score improvement calculation was derived from credit scores obtained from TransUnion on behalf of customers that started between 1/1/2019 and 12/31/2019, a total of 983,050 customers, as well as customers that stayed with the program for at least 6 months, a total of 245,174 customers. The score change between the initial credit score, defined as the first score pulled within the initial 15 days of service, and the credit score at six months, defined as the last score pulled between five and seven months of service, were both used in determining score improvement. This larger date range for the final score allows for any fluctuation in dates in which scores were pulled. The average time for all customers between when the initial score was pulled and the final score was pulled was 186 days
Credit score improvement
In total there were 108,165 customers that used the service for at least six months that had both an initial and final score within the criteria listed above whose score changes could be analyzed. 70% of the customers analyzed saw a score improvement. 89% of customers (96,726) had an initial credit score in the Poor (<580) or Fair (580 – 669) credit score ranges. The average score increase of these customers was 40 points.
Average ending score is calculated based on all of the ending credit scores that we had for the customers in the data set regardless of whether they had a starting score or not. The number of customers with an ending score value was 116,095. The average ending score of these customers was 611.85.

What you should know about our claims
A 2014 study using previous Lexington clients saw that the average result was 10.2 removals after four months across their three reports. However, some members did not see that result and Lexington makes no guarantee that you will receive that average result.
