How To Get Your Credit Score For Free

Dec 19, 2007
Want to know how to get hold of your Credit Score for free? Here you'll find some tips and advice from an attorney.

The first thing to know is that you need to be truthful, but still cover over the bleakest part of your finances and accounts. Go into detail on any sickness, discharge, accidents, recovery and back taxes.

When you need to consider a bankruptcy, consider carefully. It is best if you don't incur any other debt or credit after declaring, because if you do, you may not be able to discharge them in bankruptcy. Moreover, do not reveal where you are working or where you bank. You don't want this information to cause you trouble should someone get a judgement against you -- by providing this information you've made their task much, much simpler.

Cleanly answer the questions and queries but make no other comment. Rather than sending a check from your bank, get a money order or cashier's check so as to protect the name of your bank. What you want to do here is make your Credit Score zero. When you want to consider an attorney, always bear in mind that though an attorney carries influence and can do a fine job, they cost a lot of money. In addition, do not hire one unless you are indebted a great deal and have a sensible chance of a very fine deal.

If you do have to pay a lawyer, sometimes what you set aside in arrangement is what you lose in the end. And when you are contacted by more than one creditor for the same debt, it almost certainly means the debt was sold a second time and you have avoided the first collector very well. In other words, you've made yourself hard to get a hold of, so the debt has been able to get incredibly old debt already. Moreover, many secondary and tertiary collectors at this phase might be willing to accept 40-55 cents on the dollar and probably even less. When the collector agrees to resolve for less, be sure it is also designated on your credit report and statement.

In addition, you may have tax complication on the debt owed. And any write off of $500 or more is considered profits to you the consumer. The creditor will send you and the IRS a form towards the end of the tax year. So get out of your debt any way you can. If at all possible, struggle to work out a repayment plan to get out of your debts. And if it so happens that the interest rate is too high, and you can't practically get out of debt for the next 5 or 6 years, you might want to consider credit counseling.
