Re: 60 minutes tonight on CBS about the Credit Bureaus!!

I know the current system the bureaus use to verify stuff is worthless but this same flawed system has also helped millions of people get bad accurate information off there reports as well and for the smart one's it's a fresh start so really who's to blame. It goes both ways really.

 

 

Amex BCP 12,500 - Amazon Chase Signature 10,000 - Discover It 8,000 - Walmart MC 7,500 - Citi Diamond 6,100 - Lowe's 6,000 - Fulton 6,000 - Amazon Store Card 2,000

While the system is flawed because it has become automated in my opinion (much cheaper to have software running it, then actually having employess doing it). Being automated has no human interaction, and can in no way be beneficial as the software can not distinguish things properly. When you ask to have a dispute removed, since it has to be sent to an automated system, you actually have to request a dispute to remove a dispute. How that makes any sense and usually does not get the dispute removed is beyond me.

 

Greed is the key to most flawed systems.

Good Luck
May all your dreams and wishes become a reality!
