The Good

American Credit Repair provides professional credit repair services to those looking to remove erroneous items from their credit reports. Each case that goes through the American Credit Repair process can expect the following:

Guaranteed Credit Score Increase

American Credit Repair claims that their average client scores increase by 70-100+ points within a period of 60-120 days. The company offers a 100 percent money back guarantee if clients are unhappy with services provided.

Proprietary Pre-Litigation Process

The company utilizes a proprietary pre-litigation process to assist consumers in boosting their credit scores. The company sends a complete copy of the Fair Reporting Act directly to the creditor first demanding they provide proof that the negative item belongs to the client and was reported to the credit bureaus correctly. If the creditor cannot prove they have complied with all the laws, the negative credit item must be deleted by default.

Affordable Payment Options

The company desires to make its program affordable to consumers who sincerely desire to reestablish their credit by offering affordable payment options.

The Bad

With American Credit Repair, clients can expect to receive help with their poor credit situations. However, there are still concerns that need to be pointed. Those interested in the American Credit service should be aware of the following limitations:

Expensive Credit Repair

The company does not make their rates highly visible to consumers on their corporate website. However, this information can be found in small print in their FAQs section. The company charges rates are not listed on its website but costs are estimated to range per individual, depending on the amount of credit repair involved. These fees can be expensive for individuals with few credit items in need of repair.

No Licensed Attorneys

There are no licensed attorneys on staff. No available statements are offered by the company that they will follow through on any necessary litigation efforts during the credit repair process.

The Bottom Line

American Credit Repair appears to be best suited for consumers with intensive credit repair needs. The company uses a unique proprietary pre-litigation process to boost overall credit scores by 70-100+ points within a 60-120 days timeframe. Rates can be expensive for some consumers, but they do offer flexible payment options. The company also provides a free initial consultation and a full money back guarantee for unsatisfied customers.

    This company and the owner has ripped me off for a total of $2,500, and has done absolutely nothing for me. The only time that he would stay in contact with me constantly is when I was making payments ( total of 3 in two week intervals). As soon as I was paid in full would not even return my calls or texts.

    I must say I am very pleased with my results from American Credit repair. I started in the program with them in February, with the intent of getting my credit repaired so that I could one day purchase a home again. My plan was to hopefully get things cleared up in hopes of buying in early 2014. Going in, I knew my scores would be challenging to say the least. The staff was always very helpful and friendly and prompt to respond to any questions I had. Not only did my scores go up quickly I was able to close on my new home just 5 months after signing on with American Credit Repair. I would recommend their services to all in need of credit repair. Thank you so much!!!!
