The Bottom Line

Credit Nerds appears to be a legitimate credit repair company in the financial services industry. They have an excellent rating with the Better Business Bureau and are very transparent about their pricing and services.  However, these services can be expensive for some consumers. Besides the initial audit fee, consumers are expected to pay per deletion for each successfully removed item.

    Seem as if they are in it for the monthly payments. The first month they ran my wrong SSN. I never received updates and was told NOTHING other than to get credit cards. They did NOT communicate with credit companies, did not give any direction on next steps, very unprofessional and arrogant. I would NOT advise ANYONE to use this company. After our six month agreement was up they STILL ran my credit card transaction. I only worked with Scott not sure if the previous reviews are accurate or not but seem like I should have worked closely with ERIC!

    I feel like I have officially made it! We closed on our home after only six months with Eric and the Nerds. I want to thank them for the help… We couldn’t have done it without them.

In my business I come across people regularly who need help with their credit. I ALWAYS refer them to the Credit Nerds.

    I am the president of Pathway Financial. A lot of times our clients don’t qualify for our products based on credit. Throughout our 7 years, we have attempted to use multiple credit repair agencies. I say attempted because for the most part it yielded little to no results. Once I met Eric at Credit Nerds, we knew we found the guy to get the job done. He is a straight shooter, he knows what he can get done and what he can’t, and in an industry like credit repair sadly, honesty is hard to come by. Credit Nerds is top notch. Professional, honest, inexpensive, and they actually get the job done. I will continue to refer all of our clients, family and friends to them with no hesitation.

    I was nervous at first because I had tried other services like ones who claim to be a “law” company, only to be red flagged and making it harder each time I tried. CCC removed a bankruptcy, two tax liens and over 25 collections in the first few months! I couldn’t be happier!

    I thought my credit issues would just fade away until I went to buy a car and wasn’t approved. It was embarrassing and I knew I had to fix my credit report in order to qualify for a house later down the line. I had no idea how to start the process of cleaning up my credit but credit nerds really eased my anxieties with their up front & honest approach. Now im on my way. Thanks credit nerds!

    I was quite impressed with the people at CreditNerds.com. When my husband and I decided to buy a house we were upset when we had trouble getting approved. They went over our reports with us line by line and helped us not only improve our credit report, but understand why it was the way it was to start with. Thank Credit Nerds…

    After my wife and I got married we want to clean out the financial skeletons in our closet. We contacted Credit Nerds and they got us where we needed to be as quickly as possible. They showed us how to review our own credit (for free) so it wasn’t strictly a blind trust type situation with CN, and they walked through it with us explaining the lingo. Once we were aware of what our trends were, they also helped switch to a better credit card to seriously improve our credit score with minimal hit tour finances.

    Eric and his crew are awesome! They were honest with me about every step we were taking and extremely informative. He helped me get rid of some issues on my credit report which, in turn, improved my credit score. I’d recommend this company to anyone who needs help with credit repair.
