Not usually. If this does occur, inaccurate and unverifiable information can be redisputed. After the account has been deleted two times, by law it can not be put back on your credit report.
Who are the three Credit Bureaus?
Experian, Transunion, and Equifax
Why do Credit Bureaus not want me to use a Credit Repair Company?
The credit bureaus will tell you that it is easier and less expensive to do it yourself. While it may be true that you do have the right to repair your credit yourself, many individuals do not have the necessary experince to deal with the Credit Bureaus. You may also have to spend hours studying the laws to gain working knowledge of the consumer laws available to you. Many who start repairing their credit turn to a credit repair company after months of work.
How long does it take you to repair my credit?
Each case varies. You can expect to start seeing results within the first 30 to 45 days. On average it takes between 60 to 90 days for us to repair your credit.
How often should I expect to get mail from the credit bureaus?
Every 30 – 45 days. If you have not sent us all of your results we will automatically update you every 60 days.
Does paying off my bills repair my credit?
The credit reporting system doesn’t work that way. On a scale of 1 to 9, 1 being good and 9 being bad, a collection is considered a 9 and a paid collection is also considered a 9, bad. The older something is that is being reported on your credit report the less it affects your credit score. Therefore, if you pay off an old debt, it now becomes a new negative thing on your credit and can actually lower your credit scores. This is why trying to remove an old debt from your credit first can have a much more positive affect on your credit report, than simply trying to pay it off.
How does a Credit Bureau make money?
There are several ways that the Credit Bureaus make money. One of the ways is by selling your credit report to others. Someone that has bad credit has to apply to more places to get approved, more places means more money in their pocket. Another way the Credit Bureaus make money is that all of these companies report the inquiries, all paynents (on time and late)to the credit bureaus.
Why should I use a Credit Repair Company?

How do you do this legally?
According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, everything on your credit report should be reported with 100% accuracy. ie amount owed, dates, the correct collector. Disputing inaccurate information on your credit report is your legal right.
