There are many companies offering to help you repair your credit score and even more willing to take your money and repay you with just about nothing other than a big bill and still just as ugly of credit. It is important to understand that each persons’ credit history is different and if there is a company out there offering a quick and simple ‘one size fits all’ solution it is best to avoid them all together. An individual with a few late credit card payments should have an entirely different repair plan than the one fresh out of bankruptcy, foreclosure, or a short sale or two.
