FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Facing uncertain economic times, Bill Lewis - formerly with Credit Restoration Consultants - has been widely sought by many in the restoration of their personal credit worthiness.
Approximately 78% of credit profiles in the United States contain some sort of error or omission materially affecting credit worthiness. Absent self-help and the "do-it-yourself" approach, a consumer may hire a credit repair company in the restoration of their good name and reputation.
In tough economic times, your good name and reputation is more important than ever. Creditors have tightened their guidelines effectively barring millions of Americans from borrowing money. Even those with excellent credit are experiencing reduced credit limits and closed equity lines. Mortgage lenders, auto finance companies, credit card issuers and banks have all raised the bar.
The terms credit repair, credit restoration or credit rehabilitation are somewhat synonymous. Those with bad credit histories cannot afford to ignore the potential benefits of credit repair. In today's economy, a strong FICO score is more important than ever.
Long gone are the days of obtaining credit, goods, benefits, services and/or employment with a 620 score. In most instances, a consumer will be denied if they maintain a credit score lower than 740. Even those with high credit scores have experienced closed credit card accounts and equity lines. When an account has not been closed, credit limits have been reduced to the current balance due.
Borrowers with low credit scores can expect to be denied or to pay significantly higher interest rates than those with excellent credit.
