Complete Credit Repair Only $1,499.00 by Credit Restoration Consultants

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL — Experts are talking recession and families are wondering how to protect their financial security. With the foreclosure epidemic, unemployment at an all time high, and Congress scrambling to bail out the financial industry, many consumers are experiencing severe stress as it relates to their economic stability and general well being. Although gasoline prices have fallen into the low $2.30 range, the economy is struggling with food prices and professional services that have increased at alarming rates. As a result, many families have scaled back on their spending to include only the necessities. 

In an ever worsening economy your good name and reputation within the community is becoming more important. 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. Borrowers with low credit scores can expect to be denied or to pay significantly higher interest rates than those with excellent credit. Long gone are the days of obtaining credit, goods, benefits, services and/or employment with a 620 credit score. In more instances than not, a consumer will be denied if they maintain a credit score lower than 720. 

The terms credit repair, credit restoration and/or credit rehabilitation are somewhat synomous. Those with bad credit cannot afford to ignore the potential benefits of credit repair. In today’s society, credit repair is more important than ever. Approximately 78% of credit profiles contain some sort of error or omission materially impacting credit worthiness. As such, one would be wise to at least explore retaining a reputable credit service organization in the restoration of their own good name and reputation within the community. With that said, Credit Restoration Consultants may be that credit service organization. 

Credit Restoration Consultants is a credit service organization specializing in the restoration of consumer credit worthiness as well as identity theft. We assist consumers in achieving a favorable financial credit profile. Everything we do is legal utilizing laws enacted by Congress to dispute negative, erroneous, obsolete, and/or fraudulent information contained within your consumer credit profile.

Utilizing the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Billing Act, and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, Credit Restoration Consultants will assist a consumer in the submission of disputes electronically, verbally and in writing to the Equifax, Experian and Trans Union consumer reporting agencies in addition to creditors, collection agencies, third-party record providers and state/federal/private regulatory authorities. Keep in mind that anything Credit Restoration Consultants can do – you can do yourself. Where Credit Restoration Consultants has the edge is the fact that we possess the education, knowledge and a source proven method which yields results.
Unlike most credit service organizations that submit the same written dispute letters monthly, Credit Restoration Consultants has devised a strategy whereby disputes are submitted electronically, verbally and in writing over a six month period to the credit reporting agencies, creditors, collectors, and third-party record providers reporting negative, inaccurate, obsolete and/or erroneous information. Utilizing the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Billing Act, the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, in addition to laws applicable to a particular state, Credit Restoration Consultants has obtained thousands of deletions and updates for its clients. Credit Restoration Consultants can help remove erroneous and/or inaccurate judgments, liens, bankruptcies, student loans, inquiries, derogatory tradelines, personal identifiers and more! While the credit restoration process can take anywhere from 30 days to six months, most clients see dramatic results in 45-60 days.
Credit repair, credit restoration and/or credit rehabilitation is as legal as pleading “not guilty” in a court of law. With that said, one must understand that as a credit service organization Credit Restoration Consultants is not a law firm and that none of its employees is an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Florida. As such, Credit Restoration Consultants cannot provide legal advice nor represent any individual before any court or in any legal proceeding. In the event that legal representation is required, Credit Restoration Consultants may provide an appropriate attorney referral for consultation. 

Still not convinced as to the benefit of utilizing Credit Restoration Consultants in the restoration of your good name and reputation within the community? You should tune into the Credit Restoration Consultants Hour with credit repair expert Bill Lewis. Bill can be heard weekday’s on the 9′s – both 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. eastern time – on AM 1470 WWNN in south Florida.

Is a College Education Worth the Cost? American Sentiment is on the Rise

BLOOMINGTON, Ill., Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – After six years of increasing negativity, Americans are feeling more optimistic about investing in a college education according to the latest COUNTRY Financial Security Index.

With the economy and financial sentiment rebounding in 2015, this is the first time Americans’ thoughts on investing in a college education have moved positively in the last seven years. Fifty-two percent of Americans currently believe a college education is a good financial investment, up from 48 percent in 2014. However, Americans are still far from reaching the pre-financial crisis levels of optimism. In 2008, 81 percent of Americans felt strongly about investing in education.

“The vast majority of college graduates (83 percent) are glad they invested in a college education,” says Joe Buhrmann, manager of financial security at COUNTRY Financial. “While this might not be consolation for soon-to-be college students weighing the costs of higher education, there are ways to help lower the near-term financial burdens and maximize the long-term benefits a college education provides.”

Cutting back on campus life

To help decrease the burden of higher education expenses, the majority of college graduates sacrificed some of their free time to work during college. Among four-year college graduates, at least three out of four respondents (77 percent) reported working during college to cover their expenses as students.

Americans, however, are split on what is a better investment: a part-time job to pay the bills or an unpaid internship that may pay dividends in future careers. Fifty-four percent of Americans would advise a college freshman to take a part-time job to help pay for college, while 44 percent recommend an unpaid internship to gain career experience.

Students are also proactively looking for ways to save money while earning a degree. Along with tuition, housing can be one of the most expensive college costs, but students are taking measures to reduce or eliminate this expense.

  • Recent grads aren’t the only ones moving home after school to save money. More than a third (34 percent) of Americans with college degrees lived at home while they were in school to cut back on housing expenses.
  • To manage housing costs during college, 42 percent of college graduates report living with at least one roommate and 40 percent lived in campus housing.

The smaller costs add up too – 71 percent of Americans with a college degree felt that the cost of education played a role in their ability to participate in extracurricular activities, and may have opted not to join organizations such as Greek life or club sports due to cost.

“College leads to additional responsibilities like managing new expenses. It’s important to control these costs during your time on campus to avoid making additional sacrifices and accumulating debt that could add to the burden of student loans,” adds Buhrmann.

To help manage costs during time on campus consider these simple tips:

  1. Be aware of the amount of student loan debt you will accumulate and have a plan in place for after graduation. Millennials report they are more than twice as likely as older college graduates to delay major life events such as: getting married, buying a house or having a baby, due to the burden of their student loan debt.
  2. Be sure to explore all financial aid options before enrolling. This includes completing your FAFSA and applying for local and national scholarships.
  3. Compare the cost-of-living for different campuses before enrollment. Be sure to seek alternatives like a Residence Assistant program and student housing options.
  4. Seek employment opportunities – both on and off campus. Working part-time while earning your degree will provide extra spending money for necessities. Many campuses offer work-study programs as an option as well.
  5. Consider money saving options for supplies and materials. For example, rent textbooks instead of purchasing them.

The COUNTRY Financial Security Index®

Since 2007, the COUNTRY Financial Security Index has measured Americans’ sentiments of their personal financial security. The Index also delves deeper into individual personal finance topics to better inform Americans about the issues impacting their finances. Survey data, videos and analysis are available at and on Twitter at @FinanceSecure.

The COUNTRY Financial Security Index was created by COUNTRY Financial and is compiled by GfK, an independent research firm. Surveys were conducted using GfK’s KnowledgePanel®, a national, probability-based panel designed to be representative of the general population and includes responses from approximately 1,000 U.S. adults for national surveys, plus a sample of approximately 1000 adults with a College Graduate (4+) degree for this survey. The margin of sampling error for a survey based on this many interviews is approximately +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.

Figures cited from 2008 were compiled by Rasmussen Reports, LLC, an independent research firm, based on a national telephone and online survey of at least 3,000 Americans. The margin of sampling error for the 2008 survey based on this many interviews was approximately +/- 2 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
