Credit Repair Discussion Guidelines, or "How to Get Your Posts Deleted"

[ Edited ]
Please read the "Credit Repair Discussion Guidelines" thread, which is linked below.  Posts that violate our Credit Repair Discussion Guidelines may lead to warnings in-thread and/or through PM, locking of threads, and/or removal of posts.  
Among our Guidelines is the following:  
The only credit repair discussions allowed in FICO Forums are ones that exchange information on how to correct or remove real errors from your credit report – not accurate information that you want to get rid of because it may be negatively affecting your credit score
The item above refers to filing disputes of information with the CRAs.   This includes the advocation of dispute processes as a means to obtain "Early Exclusion" of negative information from CRs.  Early Exclusion requests may be viewed as a GW request from a CRA (please note that TU may internally refer to a phone GW request as a "dispute," which is not the same as the dispute process).
Don't hesitate to PM one of the mods or admins if you have any questions about any of our rules.   We're here to help!
Thanks for contributing positively to the FICO Forums!

† Advertiser Disclosure: The listings that appear on myFICO are from companies from which myFICO receives compensation, which may impact how and where products appear on myFICO (including, for example, the order in which they appear). myFICO does not review or include all companies or all available products.
‡ Credit cards for FICO Score ranges: The score ranges are guidelines based on internal myFICO analysis of actual applicant approvals, and having a FICO Score in a particular range does not guarantee you will be approved for credit cards recommended in that range. These ranges were not provided by any card issuer.

* For complete information, see the terms and conditions on the credit card issuer’s website. Once you click apply for this card, you will be directed to the issuer’s website where you may review the terms and conditions of the card before applying. While myFICO always strives to present the most accurate information, we show a summary to help you choose a product, not the full legal terms - and before applying you should understand the full terms of products as stated by the issuer itself.
