Slide 15: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score 5 Tips On Credit Repair In today's world, credit is essential. Most of us use credit almost every day without even thinking about it: credit cards, car payments, house payments, etc. . Unfortunately, most people don't give their credit rating much thought until they run into trouble with it. Having a bad credit rating affects far more than your ability to get a loan: you will also have problems obtaining any kind of credit at all - you'll no longer be able to get store financing, you'll pay deposits on phone lines and other utilities, and face problems renting property. It's essential to take steps to repair your credit as quickly as possible. Here are some tips for credit repair: Get Your Credit Report: This step is crucial - all credit information is reported by banks and the like to credit bureaus, who in turn hold the key to credit repair. Most people never consider obtaining their credit reports until they are attempting credit repair, but it's always a good idea. In most cases there should be no charge to receive a copy of your credit report - you simply have to request it (usually in writing and accompanied by photocopied ID). When you are turned down for a credit card or loan, the company must state which credit bureau reported you as having bad credit, and you can then request a report from this bureau. Credit repair begins by taking a detailed look at your credit report. Look for any inaccuracies - in some cases there can be mistakes on your file, or your credit information can get confused with someone else with the same name. Many people are surprised how often a company reports a missed payment by mistake. If you find any inaccuracies, you can have your credit repaired by requesting, in writing, that the credit bureau investigate the disputed items. If you have any supporting documentation, include it, otherwise simply state where the confusion is and request that it's looked into. This benefits you in two ways: first, if the credit bureau can not verify the information you are disputing, by default it must be removed from your file; second, if the bureau doesn't respond to your request for an investigation within 30 days, the information in dispute must be removed. If it turns out that your bad credit is the result of a mistake, going to the credit bureau is usually all you need to do for credit repair. Keep in mind when requesting your credit report that many credit bureaus will make the process seem more difficult than it is, as in terms of man hours it is not in their interests to be responding to many credit report requests. © Wings Of Success Page 15 of 89
Slide 16: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Contact Creditors Once you have taken a look at your credit report and determined that it is accurate, the next step in credit repair is make contact with the creditors that you have delinquent accounts with. You have to deal with these accounts as soon as possible in order to repair your credit successfully. In many cases, the top priority for the creditor will be to recover as much of the receivable as possible. Many people are surprised how accommodating they can be in terms of arranging a payment process: in many cases the creditor will eliminate the interest, or even lower the bill itself it return for immediate payment. If you can't pay right away, propose a payment plan to the creditor that you can stick to - creditors will be accommodating to most payment proposals as, again, their primary interest will be in recovering the debt. Remember, of course, that the whole reason you're doing this is for credit repair: under no circumstances should to commit to a payment plan with your creditors that you won't be able to meet - it will only make problems much worse down the road. If a creditor has had repeated problems with a customer, it's unlikely there will be much trust in the relationship, and they probably won't want to help you out. Instead, pick something you can stick to and explain you financial situation to the creditor. By doing this you can often achieve credit repair quite quickly. © Wings Of Success Page 16 of 89
Slide 17: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Try And Circumvent The Collection Agency The final and worst step that a creditor will take is to sell your outstanding debt to a collection agency. In terms of credit repair, this is basically the worst thing that can happen: it means whomever you owed money to deemed their chances of recovering it so low that they we're willing to lose some of the debt. In most cases the creditor sells the debt to the collection agency at a heavy discount, often half the amount owed. When a debtor had sold your loan to a collection agency, they have "written it off" and created the lowest possible mark on your credit report. If this happens try and act as soon as possible after being contacted by the collection agent. Before you negotiate with the collection company, talk to your creditor. See if the creditor will remove the "write off" mark from your credit history this is something they will do sometimes, in exchange for immediate payment. The basic idea is you want to do whatever you can to get your debt out of the hands of the collection agency and back in the hands of the creditor - in other words you want to clear the debt with the creditor, if at all possible. If your creditor is not interested in negotiating payment, you're stuck with the collection agent. The collection agent is likely going to take a very intimidating and threatening position, and will usually imply that they are willing to take you to court. The two points you should keep in mind is that the collection company bought your debt for less than the debt's amount, and it's unlikely they will take you to court. You best solution is to offer to make an immediate payment for less then the actual balance of your debt. Most companies are going to accept this - they're usually making a profit on any payment that's more than 50% of your debt, and by offering to pay immediately you allow them to close your file and spend their man-hours elsewhere. When dealing with a collection agent, only offer full payment as a last resort. © Wings Of Success Page 17 of 89
Slide 18: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Look Into A Secured Credit Card Credit repair can be a slow process, and you may find yourself building your credit back up bit by bit over a long period of time. A good place to start is with a "secured" credit card. These cards are issued by companies that usually target people with bad credit. Unlike a regular credit card - for which you will be no doubt be turned down for if you have bad credit - a secured credit card usually requires that you give an initial deposit equal to the card's credit limit. In other words, you give the company $500 for a card with a $500 credit limit, and they reserve the right to use that deposit against any balance if it remains outstanding for too long. From the issuer's point of view, your bad credit won't matter because they are assuming no risk: you're never going to owe them more money than you've already given them to start with. From your point of view, secured cards are far from ideal, but if you have bad credit, and need to engage in credit repair, you don't have any choice. Precisely because you don't have any choice, secured cards are usually accompanied by annual fees that regular credit cards are free of. Once you have a secured credit card, use it sparingly but regularly and make sure to make all your payments on time. By doing this over a long period of time you will slowly repair your credit rating, and gain back the trust of creditors who have refused you in the past. © Wings Of Success Page 18 of 89
Slide 19: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Consider A Company That Specializes In Credit Repair If you find that none of the above things are working for you in terms of credit repair, consider going to a company that specializes in the process. Many of these companies will offer to "clean up your credit record" for a fee. While the services of a credit repair company can sometimes be useful, depending on your situation, you must be very, very careful to avoid scams and read all the fine print: in most cases, there is nothing the credit repair company will do that you are unable to do yourself - but if you don't have the time or resources to do it, it might make sense for you to hire a company. The basic strategy of most credit repair companies will be to encourage you to challenge absolutely everything on your credit report with your credit bureau. The idea is to inundate the bureau with more requests then they can respond to in a 30 day period, because remember: if the bureau can't provide documentation for something on your file in 30 days, it must be removed. It is questionable, however, how effective this really is: although the bureau must remove items within 30 days if they fail to document them, in most cases the companies will continue to investigate the claims, and when they eventually do find the proper documentation the items will be added again. Whatever you decide in regards to a credit repair company, remember to look over the offer carefully. Also be aware that credit repair companies cannot legally accept payments until services are fully rendered. They are also bound to clearly outline all payments and terms. © Wings Of Success Page 19 of 89
Slide 20: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Simple Ways to Repair Bad Credit Using credit cards sometimes lands people in trouble. Either they miss paying up the minimum amounts due on schedule. This may be because of oversight, or other financial problems or emergencies that may come in the way of paying off on the credit cards. It is fairly simple to repair bad credit.

They are also on the internet, and you should download all the reports from each of them. Scrutinize each transaction listed, and compare them with your stubs of spends and payments. Should you find any discrepancy or have a doubt, contact the credit agency and ask for clarification or corrections. This requires immediate attention and action to help yourself in beginning to repair your bad credit. Set up a timeline after reporting it to the credit agency, and check with them again. Exert your right to get your doubts removed within a specified time frame. If you still find you have bad credit, you should seriously monitor your spends. Plan your finances in a manner by cutting down other spends, paying up to the credit agency, the full amount due.

By approaching them, you are conveying your seriousness to repair your bad credit. It is appreciated by them. This saves them time and effort. You must however ensure that you keep your word. © Wings Of Success Page 20 of 89

Lastly, remember it is important to keep your copy of the credit card stubs, and payment particulars in a safe and accessible place. No matter how many checks and balances may be there, there are always chances of error on the part of the credit agency. © Wings Of Success Page 21 of 89
Slide 22: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Bad Credit Private Student Loan Worried that you might miss school because of your bad credit rating, and can't manage a private student loan? Come on, there are lots of other ways in which you can manage a private loan, and you WILL go to school. Today, Governments, local communities, businesses, are all worried about education for all. They want to encourage people like you to go to School, and they know you may be facing this dilemma of bad credit private student loan. Instead of hanging around and brooding about it, get cracking! Look up the Internet, with some keywords, and presto, you will find so many you would wonder how come you didn’t know. Your School would have the details of these private student loans from your school itself. You should meet your school counselor and place the facts plain right in front of him. These loans are available on certain terms and conditions. Take an example of a government loan, which is subsidized, like the Stafford Loan. You pay back, after six months of your graduation. And the rate of interest is generally much lower than those in the private student loans market. Get in touch with your bank. Take an appointment, and meet the person concerned. Put your problems right in front, keeping back nothing. Be prepared for a hard grind. They also know your predicament, and yes, they too have advisories from Government to help, provided conditions are fulfilled. They know you and you know them because you are their customer. It helps them too to help you. How? They can come out at the end of every quarter or half, with statements about how many people they have helped with how much money from within your community! Its called Corporate Social Responsibility. You better start learning these things. There are other ways too. You could try for a bad credit private student loan, by asking your father and mother to opt for loan known as PLUS. It will be cheaper, and further, the loan shifts to them, hence they have to repay, and it is based on their rating. You don't come into the picture. However, be sure that you pay them back the moment you get a good job and within those six months that Government does ask for. That way you will make your parents happy and proud of you. © Wings Of Success Page 22 of 89
Slide 23: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score You could still get that bad credit private student loan if one close chums agrees to co-sign with you, because his good credit should offset against your bad one. It's like a joint account. If one doesn't pay up, the other has to. You could have your parents or other family members do this. But you have to be very careful in repaying it on time, all the time. Otherwise you risk their credit going down as yours is already! So take care. And get to school, and forget about everything else except to study hard, get good grades, and repay the loans you have taken, and stand up tall. © Wings Of Success Page 23 of 89
Slide 24: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Your Annual Credit Report One of the few pieces of legislation which went through like hot knife through butter was the one in 2003, which freed customers and users of credit cards and other credit instruments from a closed door assessment of their credit rating risk. By this legislation, called FACT Act, every person who is a credit user has the right to have a free credit report annually. The upshot of this landmark legislation was that the consumer now has a right to check its veracity and ask for additional information or ask for corrections to the report. The Act introduced a certain amount of transparency in the how and on what basis the credit rating agencies collected, collated, and arrived at the risks associated to a consumer. Till this time, the consumer was in the dark, with a veil of secrecy shrouding it. How does this all help you? There can be errors in your credit report. A single different digit or even a space between characters would completely alter it. You might find that you have been billed for what you never even thought about, or, as in many cases, payments made on the due date, were not correctly entered, resulting in a technical default, which adding up over the year, would lead to a misleading impression of always lagging behind in payment! And that's apart from the charges for late payment adding up to your bill. You might also be unpleasantly be surprised that you have been bumped for a few thousands of dollars of purchases made in a place which you never even knew existed..in other words, somebody hijacked your identity!

Slide 26: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Consumer Credit Consumer credit is really nothing new. It existed in an informal fashion in the earlier days, where your neighborhood grocer would give you your requirements and you paid up at a particular time. That was based on his instinct of what you were and how you behaved. In its modern form, it began sometimes between the 1946 and 50s when two people went to dinner and found they had no cash to pay at the restaurant. Thus began the Diners Club, exclusively for use in restaurants. Just like plants, hybrids have grown to where it is now. Obviously, given the lucrative nature of the market, loan sharks, so called, for their high rates of interest, and arm twisting tactics to get their money back, had a field day, till Government/s were forced to step in. You don't carry cash; you pay by credit card. The merchant gets his sum instantaneously, and you pay the credit issuer after 30 days or so. The cost of the transaction is covered by its usage by multi million people across the world, and through the annual charge for possessing it. If you are late in payment after the stipulated date, you pay an additional surcharge. Based on the volume of business that is now driven by credit cards, multibillion dollar industry has been created. You have options too. You can ask for a staggered payment plan for expensive items that you wish to purchase, but don't have the immediate wherewithal, and the issuer steps and guarantees it to the dealer, and the issuers charges a fee through which the cost of money is recovered. The other part is handled by banks themselves, in cases of high values, like house mortgages, cars, expensive equipment for small and medium businesses, etc. Used wisely, it is a great boon for everybody; unwisely leads to trouble. Further, because of its flexibility, it drives the national economy, creating demand for industry for its high value goods and services.

Slide 27: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score mortgage markets. The financial institutions and the debt market have become so inter-twined that the crisis is rocking the foundations of the American banking system. Not surprisingly, even bad credit has thrown up a whole array of specialists, experts, mediators, intermediaries, who help re-finance and restructure debt. There is a slew of legislation, both Federal and State, to protect the consumer, and at the same time maintaining the balance between the fiduciary relationship between the cardholder and the finance provider. The Uniform Consumer Credit Code (http://www.law.cornell.edu/uniform/vol7.html#concc) adopted by eleven States and Gaum, protects consumers, ensuring adequate credit is provided and governs in general the credit industry. The Consumer Credit Protection Act, enacted by Congress, in part regulates the industry, requiring the creditors to fully disclose the credit terms, protects the consumer form predatory loan sharks, restricts garnishees of wage, and set up the National Commission on Consumer Finance to probe this industry. This Statute also governs the Credit card companies and credit reporting agencies, prohibits gender or marital status based discrimination in granting credit, apart from regulating debt collectors, and with rules for collectors to adhere to a certain code, which restrains from certain practices in collections. © Wings Of Success Page 27 of 89
Slide 28: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score CCCS Consumer Credit Counseling Service Of the very many companies offering credit counseling service is the Consumer Credit Counseling Service (CCS), which has become a bye word in the credit counseling industry. And Its record has built up over decades for successfully helping restructure bad credits and setting the people on the right track to overcome their problems. One of the main features of this company is that it is community based, a not solely profit based organization, and has nation wide chapters. It draws people with problems, and also those without problem. They come to listen, and learn how to manage finances during periods of prosperity, illness, unforeseen circumstances, etc. And primarily how to stay out of bad credit. What then makes this company stand out in the market, as a leader ? A leader has two attributes: innovation, a clear insight, constant learning, and communication with passion and vision. CCCS, as it is known, seems to have all these in abundance. It holds regular educational workshops, partners’ communities, and gives incentives that advocate the right way to utilize credit, and also how the messes made can be cleared when it happens. it works in three-four ways: meet a counselor independently, discuss problems on line, and you can opt for their electronic help-desk. They are staffed by individuals with hands on experience in debt management, and keep abreast of the financial community, with an eye on what new instrument or method can help the people trying to repair their debt. The analysis that CCCS carries out is much the same as in the rest of the financial world of debt management. An analysis of your present financials, that is income and debt, a more detailed look at your finances which includes incomes, expenses, assets and liabilities, in short a balance sheet and an Income and Expenditure statement. Most often they would ask for details for one or two preceding years in order to check whether there is a pattern which developed, or was it a one time cause that was not properly handled. Advice is then given on how best to repair your debt and make a financial recovery, over a period of time. © Wings Of Success Page 28 of 89

Slide 30: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Consumer Credit Counseling Services Debt Consolidation One of the ways you can reduce your headaches and tension when you are trying to repair your consumer credit debt, is debt consolidation. This put very simply means that one of your creditors or another institution will agree, for a fee to pay off all your other creditors, and stand in their place in front of you to deal with. That is one single person, period. Instead of having to talk to ten, you talk to one. There are two ways of doing it. Either you do it yourself, Or you take the help of consumer credit counseling service which offer debt consolidation. In choosing the right consumer credit counseling service for debt consolidation, you need to verify their credentials; it should not turn out that you are leaping from the frying pan into the fire. You have to check around. The best bet for you would be to contact your bank. They would know, as the financial community is a close knit one, which consumer credit counseling service is best suited for your purpose. Who knows they may volunteer? Trying to do it yourself is quite a big headache. Unless you are very well versed with financial matters, and have contacts, in which case you don't need anybody, you do need the help of professional consumer credit counseling service offering debt consolidation. Moreover, they know the right people, the right rates, the right institutions and the right Joe for the job. If you were trying to do it yourself, they simply won't believe you, for the simple reason that you are in a mess, and if you had the talent, you would not have gotten into it in the first place. That's logical. But if they were to learn from the consumer credit counseling service that you are appointing them, then there is a degree of comfort for the creditors that you are serious, and they can talk the jargon that each will understand. And once they know that it is happening, it is quite possible that they may settle for a lower amount than what you actually owe. © Wings Of Success Page 30 of 89
Slide 31: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Consumer credit counseling service can also negotiate with your creditors by letting them know you are getting a debt consolidation loan for your bills. The creditors will be happy they are get paid. The counseling service can then negotiate with the creditors and perhaps get you a lower payoff amount than what you actually owe. Doing debt consolidation using a consumer credit counseling service improves the look of your credit report. Once the creditors are off your back, your balance looks a little more clean, and that means your liabilities have gone down, elevates to some extent your credit showing. But do remember also that the debt consolidation will also show up. And it is important to keep your payments regular, on time, and squeaky clean. Otherwise, all the effort is just that much down the drain. We do recommend that for debt consolidation, it is best to appoint a consumer credit counseling service of some standing. Best of Luck! And just do it. © Wings Of Success Page 31 of 89
Slide 32: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Help With Credit Card Debt Consolidation Too many credit cards are a sure sign that either you have a lot of money, or you are going to go down the tube, head first. The second is the one we are concerned about. Then begins your dance with what I call the devil. Finance people can, but laymen like us? We get into credit card debt without knowing it. And one day, we find ourselves staring at our faces in the mirror wondering how did I get into this? Pure greed, let's be honest. What do you do? The best is to find a professional firm to help you consolidate your credit card debt That firm would know how to extricate us from the pit we dug ourselves. They would arrange for you to take a loan from another financial intermediary or institution for a fee, and you clear your credit card debts. There are numerous individuals and companies that do this every day. And they have the right language, the right connections and the right knowledge about laws and chances of recovery of credit card debts. In other words they hold the right cards to play the game for you. The credit card teams would be too happy to toe the line. And because they can see the $$$s in their eyes suddenly popping up in the genie called a non-performing asset, they would be willing to step down and take a little lower than what you owed. You deal with only one individual or firm for your credit card debt that has now been taken over. Your credit rating rises a bit, since the rating agencies would see that you have paid off the creditors, and of course, if you keep up the payment schedule drawn up by the new creditor, it will go on getting better. Now, retain only one card. The rest you chop up and burn. Retain also your dignity when out on a date, and say you find cards irritating, and you are not a show-off type. You will get noticed. And keep that credit card you retained in a place which is difficult to reach in your clothing every day, substituting the real greenbacks for their place and keep the greenbacks handy, for make only those purchases that are within the amount of greenbacks you have. © Wings Of Success Page 32 of 89
Slide 33: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Learn to say No straight on the face of the person who next approaches with another "special offer". Take it if they offer to pay for everything. They won't bother you again. And yes, the professional or firm you engaged for your credit card debt solution, will continue to share with you tips and don't do's. Listen and act on them. You will be the better for it. © Wings Of Success Page 33 of 89
Slide 34: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Getting A Cell Phone Contract With A Bad Credit Rating With everyone sporting cell phones, and landlines being relegated to the background, you are an anachronism in today's society, if you don't have cell phone contract for you have a bad credit rating. And it bugs you pretty badly. That's fair enough. But things are looking up. With new competitors coming into the field, cell phone providers are finding ways of enlarging their market by making it a little easier for people like you to get a cell phone contract. Earlier you had to be a supplicant with your hat in hand, and asking the cell phone company to provide you a cell phone contract. Meanwhile, your friends, associates and colleagues were asking for your cell phone number, and you kept putting them off citing some reason or the other, becoming worse every day. The cell phone company would take their own time, and one fine day they would revert back to you and ask you for a deposit, apart from the rental. The deposit would have ranged anywhere from nearly $ 1000 to as low as $ 500, based on how bad your credit rating is on a scale of ten. In addition they could have asked for additional escrow to be put in, which neither of you could touch unless you agreed with each other to release it in either's favor. Today, with competition, they are now less condescending in their attitude towards people with bad credit, and have climbed down from their high perches. The deposits they ask for are low, and they could sweeten the deal with giving you a prepaid cell phone contract. That would mean that you stick to them - which is important for them - and as you call, your prepaid value goes on declining, and at one point, you would have to pay upfront for renewal of additional predetermined number of minutes. And that's pretty flexible too. Or you could walk into a large retail outfit of which many abound, and pick up a cell phone which does not require a contract, and you can purchase certain amounts of minutes, which you recharge using a variety of coupons which offer a wide range, one of which should certainly suit your pocket. Sticking to one cell phone now gets you loyalty bonuses as well. © Wings Of Success Page 34 of 89
Slide 35: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score At the end you would have a cell phone contract, and if you are on time with repayments, your credit ratings should at least start jingling, rather than have alarm bells ringing! Competition helped you; but you still have to help yourself in getting your bad credit straightened out! © Wings Of Success Page 35 of 89

Slide 38: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Chinese Government Sovereign Credit Rating Let's start at the very beginning..it's a very good place to start with. We know what Chinese Government means, what credit rating means, but Sovereign Credit Rating? Simply it means that countries are rated the same way by other countries regarding their credit rating as we, individuals or entities are rated by our banks, financial institutions and creditors. That's it. Since it is between independent countries, the word Sovereign, meaning the 'above all' is applied to the buying and selling of bonds, currencies, import and export of goods and services amongst the countries. Everything else remains the same. If we default, we are penalized, and if we persist in default, we are marked as 'risky', and if there is no improvement we are moved further back to bad credit. If we repair the credit default, we move back slowly as we continue to redeem our debts by whatever means. Exactly the same applies to countries lending to each other. In the case of the US of A, Standard and Poor's has been designated the authority to determine the credit viability of the countries to which the US Government can issue bonds, other instruments, and also weigh the pros and cons of dealing with countries. If the rating is poor, then obviously, normal standards would not apply with that country. Business in US is put on notice. Taking this further, raising or lowering the rating impacts positively or negatively the business interest in the country for whom it has been issued. So Standard and Poor's raised the Sovereign credit rating of Chinese Government as improving, it means that the Chinese Government has taken steps to redeem the bonds and other instruments issued to it, and based on that 'improving' you can well assume that the Chinese Government had defaulted earlier in regard to the instruments issued before. Since the bonds are backed by solid money, the issuing country faces a problem with its own funds flow, just our creditors do, when we don't pay on time. And that signals to other countries that Chinese Government has to be tackled carefully when dealing on monetary issues. © Wings Of Success Page 38 of 89
Slide 39: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Just like us individuals, countries that receive a higher rating than the existing one, it is an occasion for some happiness for that country as a whole. Downgrade is just the opposite. Neutral means wait and watch. There is one difference however in Sovereign Credit. It is used between countries, either on their own, or jointly, to issue Sovereign Bonds or others to countries which do have low rating. This is done to help the country which is facing economic problems to rise above it, by creating infrastructure for its goods, which is then sourced by the other countries so that incomes rise in the receiving country, and the issuing countries get preferential treatment in the manner and prices of the goods and services received. It is known better as an "Investment in the future for ourselves". Be careful here. 'For ourselves does not mean only the US, but each of the countries which have issued those instruments. There are dissenting voices on this matter, but in a democracy the majority prevails, and nothing needs be said of the dictatorial or totalitarian regimes. We need certain goods and services which are becoming expensive to produce ourselves for a variety of reasons. In the case of China, we find that it is a low cost country, and therefore it would be cheaper for our consumers if those goods and services come from China. Despite it having a low rating, the US Government would issue a small sized Sovereign Bond to China, to help it produce those goods and services we need. If China does defaults, we shrug it off as a loss, and look for a better place to invest in which may turn out to be better in its efforts than China. So when China's rating is raised just that little bit, it means that things have gotten a little better for business with China. © Wings Of Success Page 39 of 89

Slide 48: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Bad Credit For lots of people being marked as a bad credit risk is like being ostracized by society, the very same society that thrives on credit! What a contradiction! Once this bad credit label is attached, internally the wounds are deep for the person. And the view of the community, and the world around is colored by that. They are afraid that their neighbors know, and imagine gossip within the community. Frankly, the issue is overblown. That is borne out the statistics that are regularly put out by the Federal authorities that nearly 40 to 45 per cent of the people have bad credit. All that talk does not help of course. Once bad credit is invoked, doors that were open earlier are no longer the same. That’s the downside of bad credit. What a person with bad credit needs to understand is that it is not the end of the world. Those two words mean only that future suppliers should be careful in dealing with you. Yes, at best you may be asked to pay up a little earlier than before. And it should be expected. You would behave in the same manner if you were in their shoes. Think about it. There are loads of people, and enterprises who know how to repair a bad credit situation. There are a whole range of books that are available, ranging from the simple to the complex, which at least educate, if not help, people about it, and the various steps that could be taken to get over it. There are e-books, cds, DVDs, videos. You think of any form, you can find it. It is there because the numbers of people who have bad credit are large as well. While it may be no consolation to be amongst that company, at least you are not alone in it. Self-pity and feeling ashamed does not help. What really helps is that you should start taking steps to redeem yourself in the eyes of your creditors, that "look I know I have bad credit, but I am going to pay back every penny, and till then, I need your support and understanding". That's the positive way. Read up or download those books.

Slide 50: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Credit Repair Through Debt Consolidation Although everyone's economic status and situation is particular, almost all of us are in some sort of debt at any given time. This can mean small debts like credit card bills or in-store financing, as well as larger ones like outstanding loans and mortgages. What this means is that almost everyone is dependent on being allowed a certain amount of credit, and without credit many things that you take for granted will become difficult. The key to your credit status at any given time is your credit report that is maintained by a credit bureau. Once you fall into default, or miss payments to your creditors, your credit bureau will receive notice and you will find yourself saddled with a poor credit rating. Effective credit repair involves many different steps, and is particular to each individual's situation. A good solution for most people in terms of credit repair, however, is debt consolidation. One of the most important things in credit repair is to act quickly. Although your credit rating will become damaged as soon as you begin to miss payments to your creditors, it will get continually worse if you continue to do so. Many people get confused into thinking that credit is either "good" or "bad," and that once they get into trouble with a creditor it's fruitless to try and rectify it. The opposite is true, however, so even if you are in bad standing with creditors, credit repair requires that you pay off your debts as quickly as possible. The problem, of course, is that you probably don't have the money to pay off the debts, after all, your economic situation probably was the reason for the missed payments in the first place. It is for this reason that debt consolation can be an excellent tool in credit repair. It works by consolidating all of your debts into one loan. In other words, if you have multiple outstanding debts, you take out a loan from one company, use that loan to pay the debts, and then make payments only on that loan. What debt consolation achieves is some flexibility in situations where your debt is becoming unmanageable. Although you will ultimately owe the same amount of money, you could get a debt consolidation loan over a long term, so that your monthly payments will drop. Most importantly, debt consolidation immediately puts you back on solid footing with your creditors, and ultimately bodes well for credit repair. Things won't be perfect, but your creditors will report that you have cleared up your debts, and so the process of credit repair can begin quickly. © Wings Of Success Page 50 of 89
Slide 51: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Debt consolidation is an important tool in credit repair because it allows your status with creditors to change very quickly: you go from someone on bad terms with multiple creditors to someone on good terms with a single one. It allows you to stop the damage before things get out of hand, and gives you the breathing room you need to engage in credit repair. In this way intelligent debt consolation is a valuable tool in credit repair. © Wings Of Success Page 51 of 89
Slide 52: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Credit Repair Through A Collection Agent Credit ratings are based on your credit report. When banks, credit card companies, or any other business loans money to you, they report to an agency your status in terms of making your payments on time, etc. . . The agency then compiles this information into a credit report, which is the ultimate gatekeeper to your credit rating. Negative marks on your credit rating will stay there for 7 years, preventing you from getting most kinds of loans. When you begin to lapse in payments to a creditor, whether it be loan payments or credit card or financing payments, the creditor will go though various steps in an attempt to receive payment. After a (usually long) serious of warnings, the creditor will eventually sell your debt to a collections company. When a creditor does this, they are effectively "writing the loan off" as they generally sell the debt to a collection agent at a heavy discount. Basically, the creditor has decided that their chances of recovering the loan are small enough that they are willing to lose as much as half of its value in order to stop pursuing it. When this happens the creditor will inform the credit reporting agency, and you will be left with the lowest possible mark on your credit report, which will affect your rating for up to 7 years. A crucial step to credit repair is take steps to avoid this "writing off" of your debt. You should act as soon as possible after being contacted by a collection agent. The first thing you should do is contact your creditor - not the collections company - and see if you can arrange to clear the debt with them. In many cases, if you agree to repay the debt immediately to the creditor, they will remove the "gone to collection" mark from your credit rating - essential to quick credit repair. If your creditor is unwilling to do this, you're stuck with the collection agency. In terms of credit repair, keep in mind that the mark on your credit rating can't get any worse at this point - the debt is already gone to collection - so take time to consider all of your options. Usually, the collection agent will contact you in an aggressive manner demanding immediate and full payment of the debt, and imply that they will take you to court if this doesn't happen. It is to your advantage in this situation to understand that the collection company has likely bought your debt at something close to half its value, so any payment higher than that will result in a profit for them. Try and offer to pay less than the full value of your debt immediately. In most cases the collection agent will be motivated to close your file as soon as possible to avoid the © Wings Of Success Page 52 of 89
Slide 53: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score process getting dragged out. They will usually be willing to accept a quick payment at a discount so they can move on.. In order to achieve credit repair as quickly as possible, always attempt to pay your creditor rather than the collection agent when your debt has gone to collection. If that fails, offer the collection agent a lower figure than the full loan amount. Full payment to a collection agent should only be offered as a last resort. © Wings Of Success Page 53 of 89
Slide 54: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Credit Repair Through Credit Counseling Like many other things in life, budgeting is a skill. Some people are better then others at managing their income and keeping in good standing in regards to their debts. Almost all of us have some sort of debt at any given time: a credit card bill, and outstanding loan, or a mortgage. By managing these debts properly, you will maintain a good credit rating which will allow you to continue to receive credit in the future. If you fail to make timely payments towards your loans or worse, you let them go in default - you will find yourself stuck with a poor credit rating, which will rob you of many economic opportunities. In order engage in credit repair, you must slowly build your credit rating back up again. One thing that can help you do this is to seek the help of a credit counselor. In general, credit counseling is performed by non-profit agencies, and is not to be confused with for-profit credit repair companies. The latter should be avoided. Credit repair companies have a reputation for being scams, especially those ones who advertise online. Even if it doesn't turn out to be a scam, it's likely that a credit repair company will do nothing that you can't do yourself: they'll direct you to obtain your credit report and challenge all negative items on it, and may even suggest you attempt illegal activities like getting a "new" credit rating thorough a different address. In contrast, a credit counseling service will only provide advice, and in a context that precludes a profit motive. This is the best and most intelligent way to engage in credit repair. To deny that rebuilding your credit rating will be a long process requiring time and discipline is to do yourself a disservice, and a credit counselor will help you make the long term plans and decisions you need to in order to engage in effective credit repair. Most good credit counseling organizations will provide you with advice and workshops, as well as educational materials. They will help you learn to both make and stick to a budget, which over the long term will be extremely beneficial to your credit rating. They will also be able to provide you with one-on-one counseling, so you can examine and learn to make good economic decisions based on your particular credit experience. The problem with credit repair companies - and the reason you should be suspicious of them is that they propose a quick, one size fits all solution. Anyone who claims they can quickly fix your credit without knowing anything about the situation is not being truthful. A credit councilor © Wings Of Success Page 54 of 89
Slide 55: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score can be crucial in providing exactly the kind of particular attention that a credit repair company will avoid. Most importantly, if you engage in credit repair by using a councilor, your solutions will be more long term, because you will be learning how to manage your budget more effectively, and making permanent changes to your spending habits. This is far preferable to paying a credit repair company that promises a quick solution that is of no educational value to you. © Wings Of Success Page 55 of 89
Slide 56: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Some Steps Toward Credit Repair Credit is an essential tool to most people's lives. A good credit rating allows for many things that we take for granted: having a credit card, being able to rent property, qualifying for in-store financing etc. . . If you fail to make payments towards a creditor this will affect your credit report collected by your credit bureau, and will make doing the above things difficult if not impossible. When your credit rating becomes poor, you must take steps as soon as possible to repair it. Credit repair can be a slow process, and requires that you build a better credit rating over time. Here are some steps you should take: 1) Add accounts to your credit report. If you are denied for credit, you should immediately obtain your credit report from the credit bureau in question. Once you have the report you should examine it closely for errors. In the event that there are no errors, you may find that your credit rating is "poor" not because of outstanding debts, but because you don't have enough of a credit history to inspire a good rating. Many types of credit from smaller organizations are not tracked by credit bureaus. Things like gas-cards or department store cards are not usually on your credit report. As long as the account is verifiable, most credit bureaus will add it to your file. They are not obligated to do so, and thus usually charge a fee for this service. By adding these accounts to your credit report you will establish a better credit rating. 2) Credit Counseling. Once you become mired in debt, the process can feed on itself, and it can be difficult to get out of it. If you find yourself having continual problems with your credit repair, you should consider credit counseling. It's important to notice the distinction between a credit counselor and a credit repair company. The former is usually a non-profit service that offers advice and guidance on credit repair, while the latter are for-profit companies of dubious ethics that generally charge fees for steps that you can easily take care of yourself. A good credit counselor will help you make a realistic budget and stick to it, and help you make practical decisions with regards to your outstanding debts. By adding whatever accounts you have in good standing to your credit report, and seeking credit counseling if necessary, you will make headway into your ultimate goal of credit repair. The difficult thing about credit is that it takes a long time to build a good credit rating, and a very short time to destroy it. When your credit rating has been marred you have to understand that © Wings Of Success Page 56 of 89
Slide 57: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score there is no quick solution: you will have to build your credit rating again - essentially from scratch. If you avoid the temptations of credit repair companies that promise a quick and easy credit repair for a fee, and think instead of long term changes to your budgeting and spending habits, you will - over time - be successful in credit repair. © Wings Of Success Page 57 of 89
Slide 58: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Why "Do It Yourself Credit Repair" Is The Best Option Having a good credit rating is one of the essential tools to leading a successful economic life. Although most people don't give their credit reports much thought, good credit allows for many things that are usually taken for granted: credit cards, car rentals, hassle free loans and apartment rentals etc. . . Every time you miss a payment to a creditor, the creditor will report this to a credit bureau, and it will be added to your credit report. If you do this too often, or let loans go into default, you will find yourself needing to engage in credit repair, as you will be consistently turned down for credit cards and most other types of loans. If you turn to the internet or classified ads when beginning your research into credit repair, you'll likely notice many, many offers from companies offering credit repair services. Most of them market themselves aggressively, and claim that they can fix your credit report quickly for a fee. You should be very wary in dealing with these companies - not only are many of them scams, in most cases you can repair your own credit more effectively. It's important to understand that there is nothing a credit repair company can do that you can't do yourself. In other words: even though they may imply so, a credit repair company is not in cahoots with the credit bureau, and cannot get poor marks on your credit rating "erased." What's most likely to happen is that the credit repair company will encourage you to obtain your credit report from the credit bureau, and to challenge negative items on the report. In some cases, credit repair companies will even go so far as to engage in activities of questionable legality. Namely, they will encourage you to start a "new" credit rating through a change of address and banking information. This practice is not legal, nor is it usually effective. A far better approach to credit repair is to do it yourself. If you search online you'll find many sites offering step by step advice - your best bet is to look at advice from a government source or other trusted organization. The best approach is to first obtain your credit report from the bureau. Once you have the report examine it closely, and challenge, in writing, any errors on the report. Only challenge items if there are genuine errors - if your report is error free, you will have to engage in the traditional methods of credit repair. The best way to start is to obtain a secured credit card and use it regularly. In this manner you will be to slowly repair you're credit rating. © Wings Of Success Page 58 of 89
Slide 59: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score By being patient and making smart budgeting decisions, you will be able to pay your creditors on time. In doing so you will eventually prove to them that you are suitable for credit. Although credit repair in this way is a slow process, it is the only truly effective one. This do-it-yourself approach will be far more successful in the long run than employing a credit repair company. © Wings Of Success Page 59 of 89
Slide 60: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Credit Repair - How To Deal With A Credit Bureau Having good credit is an essential tool in today's economy - it allows you to have a credit card, to obtain car and house loans, and many other conveniences. While you can live without good credit, a bad credit rating will certainly affect you negatively throughout your life. The key to your credit rating lies with a credit bureau. There are a handful of credit bureaus in North America that handle all reports - positive and negative - from creditors to create a credit report specific to you. If you have a poor credit history, you must take steps to engage in credit repair, and one of the first and most essential tools is to learn how to effectively deal with your credit bureau. Credit repair begins with determining which credit bureau holds your file. To do this simply look at any rejection letter from a credit application - the letter, in refusing you credit, will indicate which bureau proved the rating. The next step is to obtain your credit history. Keep in mind that legally it is always free to obtain your credit history if you have recently been denied credit, although many organizations will imply that it is not. The only time you should pay money for a credit report is if you want to receive it instantly, in which case credit bureaus will provide an instant online report for a fee. When dealing with a credit bureau, understand that they are in the business of collection and selling information. For this reason, it is in your interest to never provide them with any information that is not legally necessary. Legally, you only need to provide a credit bureau with your name, social security number and legal address in order to obtain your credit report. The bureaus may request a copy of your social security card, and - if the address they have on file is different from your current one - a copy of something proving your address. Although they may ask for a driver's license to prove your address, send them a copy of a bill showing your address. The reason you want to be cautious when dealing with credit bureaus is that they own many collection agencies, and if you have a credit problem you want to give them as little information as possible with which to harass you with. Once you have received the report, examine it closely for any errors. If anything is in question, send a written request for an investigation to the credit bureau. Legally, the onus is on the credit bureau to document anything on your credit report - if they cannot document it within 30 days, it must be removed. This is the basic strategy of many credit repair companies that charge exorbitant fees: challenge everything negative. In many cases if the negative item is more than a few years old it will be difficult to verify and the item will be removed. © Wings Of Success Page 60 of 89
Slide 61: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score By learning to properly deal with a credit bureau you can engage in effective credit repair that other companies change high fees for. By educating yourself as to the legal obligations of the credit bureau, you can, in many cases, repair your own credit quickly and effectively. © Wings Of Success Page 61 of 89
Slide 62: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Be Cautious When Considering A Credit Repair Company Most people have some sort of debt. Almost everyone has a credit card balance, an outstanding student loan, or mortgage and car payments. All these loans and their payments result in a credit history, which most people don't usually give too much thought too until it's too late. Your credit history can have a major influence on your life, and once you credit history becomes poor you will find yourself unable to rent cars, obtain services without deposits, or get a credit card. This is why, if you find yourself in this situation, it is important that you take steps towards credit repair as soon as possible. Many people will find their poor credit history to be overwhelming, and will be tempted by one of the many companies online that offer to "fix bad credit" for a fee. Although there are some situations where these companies may of use, for most people they are not necessary, and should be avoided. The reason credit repair companies aren't useful for most people are because they rarely do anything that you can't do yourself. These companies will give the impression that they are doing things you wouldn't normally be able to do on your behalf, but it most cases they are not. The general strategy of many of these companies will be to have you first request your credit report from the credit reporting agency, and then to launch numerous challenges to the report in writing. The idea here is not that there are necessarily many (or any) mistakes on your credit report, rather you are trying to take advantage of a legal obligation on the part of the credit reporting agency: namely, that all requests for investigations must be responded to in 30 days. If the agency doesn't respond to you in that time (and it's unlikely they will if you challenge multiple items) they must remove the item in question from your credit report. While this may initially seem like a clever strategy, it's important to understand that there is nothing to prevent the credit reporting agency from putting the removed items back onto your credit report once they find the proper documentation. In other words: they may not be able to produce the documentation in 30 days and have to remove something, but they will keep investigating, and once they find the documentation the item will be restored to your credit report. © Wings Of Success Page 62 of 89
Slide 63: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Besides the somewhat dubious strategy that most credit repair companies employ, you should also be careful to avoid any scams. Be advised that these companies are legally bound to render all promised services before accepting any payment from you. They are also obligated to clearly outline all fees and services that will be provided. If you do decide to use the services of a credit repair company, make sure you look over all the paperwork and fine print provided. In most cases for most people, a credit repair company shouldn't be necessary. The only time you should use one is if they are truly able to perform services you can't do, or don't have time to do, on your own. © Wings Of Success Page 63 of 89
Slide 64: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Contacting Creditors To Help With Credit Repair Having good credit is almost a necessity on today's world. In most cases, credit it essential to owning a car or home, and with the proliferation of online shopping it's hard to be without a credit card. Unfortunately, some people get into trouble with their credit. They miss some minimum payments on their credit card, or let a loan go into default. When this happens the creditor will report it a credit reporting agency, who will add it to your credit history. Once your credit history is blemished, it can be difficult to repair: most things will stay on your credit history for 7 years before they are removed. Once you're in a situation where you have a bad credit history, you'll find yourself dealing with many previously unknown problems: you won't be able to rent cars or purchase things online; landlords will hesitate to rent property to you; a mortgage may be difficult or impossible to get. This is why it's important to engage in credit repair as soon as possible: you can do wonders for your credit repair by taking proactive an early action. One of the best things you can do if you've fallen behind on payments is to contact your creditor. Many people, alas, take the opposite approach: they feel a sense of embarrassment or shame and avoid calls and contact with their creditors. This type of behavior is shortsighted and will result in long term credit difficulty. The best thing you can do in terms of credit repair is to contact your creditor as soon as you run into trouble with a debt. Remember that the key to credit repair lies in your credit history report, and the report depends on whether or not your creditor reports you to the credit reporting agency. In most cases your creditor will be open to discussing alternate payment plans and solutions. Keep in mind that it is not in the creditor's interest to push you away, as that could mean they get no payment at all. Instead, the creditor is likely to be open to discussing terms. For these reasons you should always contact your creditor to ensure faster credit repair. Once you contact them, propose a payment system that is realistic both for you and the creditor. It is absolutely essential that you propose a payment plan you can stick to, and that you stick to it. The absolute worst thing you can do is default on these payments - if you do so it will seem like you were simply stalling to avoid payment from the creditor's points of view. © Wings Of Success Page 64 of 89
Slide 65: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score In general, when contacting your creditors in regards to outstanding debts, remember that their decision as to whether to report your non-payment to the credit report agency will affect you greatly, and it is in your interest to do everything in your power to convince the creditor not to do this. By contacting your creditor early and proposing a realistic payment system, you take one of the most effective steps possible towards credit repair. © Wings Of Success Page 65 of 89
Slide 66: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Obtaining Your Credit Report - The First Step In Credit Repair Your credit rating is one of the most important things in determining your economic status. With a good credit rating, you will have no problems obtaining loans, mortgages, credit cards, etc. . . But if you've missed payments with a creditor in the past, your creditor will report this to a credit reporting agency, which will make a note of it on your credit report. Once you have a bad credit rating, many doors will be closed to you: you'll be unable to obtain most kinds of loans, and without a credit card you won't be able to shop online, or rent a car. For these reasons it is important that you attempt credit repair as soon as possible. The first step in credit repair is to obtain your credit report from your credit reporting agency. There are only a handful of credit reporting agencies in Canada and the US. You can determine which one holds your credit report when you are turned down for credit: your decided credit card application, for example, will indicate which agency provided the report. It is always your right to obtain your credit report free of charge. To do you can visit the agency website and download an application, and then mail it, along with photocopied ID, to the agency. You should receive your credit report though the mail in a timely fashion. Credit reporting agencies also allow you to obtain your credit history instantly online, though a fee is charges for this. Whatever route you choose, in terms of credit repair it's essential that you examine your credit report closely once you get it. You should be looking for any inaccuracies in your report. If you find any, you have the right to request an investigation in writing from the agency. Once you have requested that a particular item in your credit history be investigated, the agency must respond within 30 days providing documentation of the entry in question. If they fail to do so, the entry must be removed from your credit report. When requesting that something on your credit report be investigated, you should send any supporting documentation if you have it. Although it is not common, in some cases the agencies make outright mistakes, or confuse your information with another customer with the same name. If an entry in your credit history is being investigated, you may also request that the agency mark the entry in question as "under investigation" on your file. © Wings Of Success Page 66 of 89
Slide 67: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Although it can seem like a cumbersome process, it is absolutely imperative that you obtain your credit history before you attempt credit repair. Without your credit history, you won't know exactly where you stand, only that your credit is "bad." What you need to know is how bad credit is, and why. For example, are you dealing with a single outstanding issue or multiple ones? How long has the problematic mark been in your credit history, and for long will it remain? Knowledge of these things is essential in order to begin the process of credit repair effectively. © Wings Of Success Page 67 of 89
Slide 68: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score Using A Secured Credit Card For Credit Repair Anyone who has ever had a credit card, paid a monthly bill, or taken out a loan has a credit rating. Whenever you have a service, or otherwise owe money to a creditor, the creditor reports to a credit reporting agency that compiles a credit report for you. If you start missing payments on a credit card or loan, or -- worse -- your creditor sends one of your outstanding debts to a collection agent, a negative mark will go on your credit rating, which will often prevent you from getting credit in the future. If you find yourself in this situation, it is imperative that you take steps to repair your credit rating as soon as possible. Although it seems like a daunting task, if you do nothing your credit rating will remain the same for up to seven years, causing you all sorts of hassles, and preventing you from obtaining any type of loan. An important step in credit repair is the acquisition of a secured credit card. Generally, if you have bad credit, you will be turned down for any credit card application. This puts you in a bind, because without a credit card you have no way of improving your situation by proving to creditors that you can pay your bills on time and responsibly. To engage in credit repair, you should look into what is called a "secured credit card." This is a credit card marketed specifically to people with bad credit. Generally, these cards work by requiring an initial deposit that is equal to your credit limit. In other words, if you make an initial deposit of $500, you will have a credit limit of $500. The issuer will then reserve the right to use your deposit against any outstanding balance on the card if payments are not met after a certain amount of time. As you can see, this type of card carries no risk for the issuer (because they can always use your deposit against the balance - you'll never end up "owing" them anything), and therefore can be freely issued to people with bad credit. Unfortunately, most of these cards will have yearly annual fees that regular credit cards are often free of. Once you have a secured credit card, you can engage in credit repair by using it sparingly but regularly, and making sure you make all payments on time. By doing this you will slowly repair your credit. What you will be doing is demonstrating to creditors that you are responsible and can be trusted with credit. © Wings Of Success Page 68 of 89
Slide 69: How To Achieve A Better Credit Score If you don't take steps towards credit repair by doing things like getting a secured credit card, your credit rating will effectively remain in a static state for years. Credit reporting agencies will keep any marks on your credit report for 7 years, so unless you are willing to wait that along, it is imperative that you take the necessary credit repair steps. By obtaining a secured credit card and using it responsibly, you will be able to reduce the 7 year wait period before being offered credit again. © Wings Of Success Page 69 of 89
