Yes, read it again.
And yes, you read that right.
While we have been told for years and years that our credit score is one of the most important financial numbers in our lives, it turns out that a whopping 20% of consumers has errors on their credit report that need to be fixed over time by a professional.
The FTC has launched and discovered the numbers through a study they did (see more here) and found that an astounding number of Americans – millions – have errors on their credit report in one form or another.
These errors, of course, have a drastic and serious effect on getting a business going, getting loans for school from a bank or financial institution, or even making major and necessary purchases like having a car or a home. But while the errors themselves may be a cause for alarm and concern, what after all are you even supposed to do about it as the consumer?
Well, for those who are so inclined, there are ways to get away from credit report problems, and professional companies do manage and correct errors in a hassle-free way to ensure you get the most out of your credit while ensuring nothing bad happens on their watch.
