Why You Should Never Use Pre-written Credit Dispute Letters

If you’re looking to fix your credit as fast as possible the LAST THING you want to do is mail pre-written or template dispute letters to the credit bureaus. Just about every “do-it-yourself” credit repair book (and software) will provide you with “Pre-Written” or “Template” dispute letters to use. These are designed to get you results while saving you time and money by not having to create disputes from scratch. Seems like a good idea, right? Unfortunately, mailing these letters to the credit bureaus is about the DUMBEST THING YOU CAN DO…

Here’s why: have you ever wondered how many dispute letters the Credit Bureaus receive each day? Take a guess. Take a wild guess. What do you think: five hundred a day? A thousand a day? Five thousand a day? Amazingly, the Credit Bureaus now receive over twenty thousand dispute letters a day. But that’s not the problem. The problem is HOW they deal with them. You see…The Credit Bureaus figured out years ago that the processing of dispute letters was costing them a fortune. In fact (not long ago) each dispute was costing them about $4.50 to process. Multiply that by 20,000 and they were spending… $90,000 a Day Just Dealing with Consumer Disputes!

Naturally, the Credit Bureaus had to figure out a way to get these costs down. And they did it with two pieces of technology called O.C.R. and E-Oscar. Today we’ll explain the first one…

O.C.R. stands for “Optical Character Recognition”. O.C.R. is a computer technology which electronically SCANS and READS over 10,000 letters per hour (whether hand written or printed). More importantly, it can store all the information it scans to a CENTRAL DATABASE. Therefore, it can recognize any letter that’s been sent in MORE than once and file it as a DUPLICATE. For the first time, this gave the Credit Bureaus the ability to recognize (and catch) any “pre-written” or “template” dispute letter mailed by a Credit Repair Company. Even worse, it allowed them to catch any letter COPIED by you… out of a CREDIT REPAIR BOOK. This is why credit books (and software) with letters are so dangerous for consumers; because when you use them, you’re using the SAME LETTERS that have been used by every “poor schmuck” who bought that book before you. And if you think the Credit Bureaus computers aren’t going to know the difference, you need to think again. Remember, if you’re like most of us, you have two lives. The life you live and the “unlived” life within you.

In between those two lives is “The Gap”… the work which must be done to get from where you are today to where you WANT TO BE tomorrow. And, if you’re paying attention and getting the “big picture” here, you understand your credit score and income is the main thing that’s keeping you from getting to that goal… It’s keeping you from the car you want… It’s keeping your from the cash you need for business and… It’s keeping you from the house you want…Now the question becomes…

“Are you going to do anything about it?”
