This book was so helpful, I just can't uderstand the bad reviews! Thanks to Credit Repair I've gone from being up to my ears in debt to having near perfect credit! Of course this kind of result isn't going to happen over night, any one who tells you otherwise is lying or doing something illegal. THERE ARE NO LEGAL QUICK FIXES!!! I've tried many different methods to improve my credit but following the advice in this book is the only one that worked for me. It even contains a CD-ROM with pre-made forms and letters that help to make the process as easy and painless as possible. Credit Repair was worth every cent!

It is obvious Ms Leonard gets her information from outside sources: i.e. legal reseach, fellow colleague, libraries, other credit repair books. All the new additions is a rehash of old, obsolete credit information. Half of the books consisted of regulations of various sorts to add pages to her book. On chapter 5/11, about removing bad credit, she mentioned bad credit has to stay for 7-10 years as long as it is correct - which is false; any negative information can be removed if the dispute is done correctly. She probably got her information from the credit bureaus themselves. As we know, the credit bureaus wants to brainwash consumers into thinking the no one can legally remove bad credit. On one passage the book said "Even if the credit bureau removes information that a credit bureau had the right to include in your file, it is no doubt only a temporary removal. Most correct information reappears after 30-60 days, when the creditor that first reported the information to the credit bureau re-reports it". This is false, most (98%) of items actually removed never comes back on. This is based on 13 years of credit repair experience. Please delete this passage from your future editions. It is obvious Ms Leonard does not practice what she preach! If she has she would have known that. Also, if she is a practitioner, she would have more practical tips about restoring credit. Instead, she takes credit for publishing other people's ideas! This book is not worth it.

Credit takes a back seat to budgeting... Aug. 26 2009
By M. Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Here's a fact: If you keep sending a letter every month disputing something on your credit report that is TRUE you will eventually get it taken off. Eventually you will get that slacker who just wants to go to lunch early, and just hits the okay button.

Here is another fact: There are tips and tricks you can use to remove anything, and this book doesn't contain any of them. For example, if you have a bankruptcy, send to the court that currently holds the paperwork and ask them for a copy of anything they have provided Experian, Transunion or Equifax. They will reply with a letter stating that they do not provide information to credit reporting agencies. Now dispute your bankruptcy with all three bureaus. They will all claim to have verified it, and list the court as the source. Reply with a copy of the letter, showing them you caught them in a lie, and demanding they remove the mark, which they FAILED to verify inside of 30 days.

Having been in the business, I know hundreds of these proven strategies, and none of them are listed in this next-to-useless book and CD on "Credit Repair".

You will do far better getting on a credit repair message board than shelling out your hard earned money on this book.

This book showed me how!!! Now I have A1 credit!!!! Sept. 11 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was in the middle of a credit disaster. I was in serious debt, and my credit was a mess. I had at least five R9 credit write-offs with all the major credit bureaus. This book empowered me to save my credit, and get out of debt. It even has pre-typed letters to send to creditors and credit bureaus. Which I used a lot.
You will find concrete advice, that really works, in this book. It tells you how, and how not to go about fixing your credit. It will show you how and why the quick-fix-it books don't work. How "File Segregation" is a border-line illegal tactic, that is unsafe and doesn't work. It simply and clearly teaches you what does work, and how to put your new found knowledge of the credit laws, and your rights as a consumer to work for you.
You will not be disapointed with this book. The only people that will not like this book are the people that are looking for quick-fix tactics that are illegal or questionable at best, and I am not one. I overcome my credit and debt problems the right way, thanks to the "Credit Repair " book, and you will too!!!!!

Great NOLO publication June 30 2009
By Ardeal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
As someone who worked in the finance arena for years, including direct work for one of the major credit agencies, I was a little skeptical about getting this book. Things change so fast from one year to another and I figured that I'm not at the stage in life to make drastic changes on my spending. Plus I was happy with my budgeting. Was I in for a surprise! The book is indeed very up to date for this year, but what stood out for me are the ideas on how to handle budgets and existing debts - with specific options listed. The book has an array of forms you may need to repair your credit, and you can get free updates to keep up with current trends in the field. And in addition to that, you may find simple ways to improve your credit rating for the next time you need to make a major purchase.

Very helpful June 11 2009
By Abe Vigoda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Ok, by now you should know that most of the credit repair books all say basically the same thing: Contact all three credit-reporting agencies, get copies of your credit report and challenge everything that is not 100% accurate until it gets removed. After correcting your reports, then you begin to repair your credit by paying all your bills on time, open a checking account, and do not bounce any checks.
You might even open up a savings account and then take out a loan just to pay it back, thus improving your "credit worthiness" (First, ask the bank if the loan will be reported to a credit agency in order to make sure it's worth your while)
Another great thing about this book, which makes it different from most other credit repair books is that it contains PLENTY of tear-out pre-written letters in the back of the book. Just pull-out and mail, very simple.
The other book I recommend is: "BestCredit: How to Win the Credit Game" , written by Dana Neal.

It takes some work but Oh what a relief it is when you are finally out from under. In this modern world, if you are living on "the Grid" then you are going to have to have a good credit score to get by in life.

Best of Luck !
