THE CREDIT REPAIR PRE-LITIGATION DISPUTES MOVEMENT

Steven got into credit repair in 2008. At the time he was a finance manager in the car business and had a portfolio of rental properties. The market was crashing and Steven saw himself getting ready to enter his own personal financial free-fall.

Steven met some folks who he partnered with to do credit repair and after a year he re-booted the business on his own. In 2009, Steven did 3 things that at the time he would never have known would have laid the foundation for the Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes movement which would start to take hold almost a decade later in 2020. Steven read a consumer protection law book called Fair Credit Reporting by the National Consumer Law Center which laid out the entire framework of how credit bureaus, debt collectors, and financial institutions are supposed to operate. He purchased the training manual for the industry standard of how to report accurate data. This manual is called the Credit Reporting Resource Guide and the industry standard data format is called Metro2®. And finally, he went on a journey to find a lawyer with whom he could work in tandem to help his clients sue credit bureaus and data furnishers for not conforming to their own industry standard for accurate credit reporting.

In 2012 Steven had his first clients file suit against the credit bureaus and data furnishers for what Steven believed were violations on their part of their own industry standards. Over the next several years Steven had around 40 clients sue the credit bureaus and data furnishers in order for the consumers to get the credit bureaus and data furnishers to fix the credit reports so that they would conform to the industry standard for accuracy.

Through this process Steven learned that it is never easy being David going against Goliath. Over this period of time Steven was subpoena’d several dozen times and required to appear in depositions almost as many times where the credit bureaus and data furnishers would ask him questions as a fact witness regarding the client disputes and accuracy issues involved in the consumer litigation.

Steven realized that the power and resources that these companies possess to continuously subpoena and depose him meant that he had to develop a more efficient method of helping consumers enforce their consumer rights against these titan corporations.

Over the next few years Steven regrouped his business, learned new skills including taxes, bookkeeping, and general accounting, and he re-tooled his credit repair strategy to involve the furnishers in subsequent disputes as well as to use laws other than the FCRA to dispute errors with the furnishers and financial institutions.

Since almost the beginning of this journey, Steven would either set up the client disputes as an affidavit for the client to adopt or he would use a Power of Attorney and prepare the client disputes on his company letterhead on behalf of the consumer. This counter-culture approach to credit repair was ahead of its time and would ultimately set the stage for the Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes movement to take shape.

In late 2019 Steven found out by pure accident that this movement was waiting to be unleashed. Steven was in a credit repair Facebook group and he made the post that sparked this movement. Steven posted that his standard credit repair method involves getting a notarized POA from each client and that he sends all correspondence out to the credit bureaus and furnishers on his company letterhead. This seemingly simple post set in motion a series of events that would change the credit repair industry forever. This one post lead to almost a dozen people reaching out to steven wanting to learn more about the “POA dispute method” as they almost all called it.

Realizing that there were people who were wanting to learn how to improve their credit repair businesses and to operate ina more transparent manner, Steven started the Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes Training Group which is designed to be powerful enough for the most seasoned company but cost effective enough for the smallest start-up company. This training course is the only credit repair training course fully endorsed by Matt Listro, founder of Credit Con.

Today, Steven is the founder of the Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes movement which is comprised of credit repair small business owners who have a hunger to dispute credit on a higher level that that which the credit repair industry traditionally teaches.

FOUNDATIONAL COURSES

Foundational Fundamentals – Law and Government 101 – US Law Intro Fair Credit Reporting Act Explained
Credit Reporting Industry Standard as the Basis for Accuracy

General Description: – The requirement for Accurate credit reporting may very well be the most important component of the FCRA; yet, accuracy is not defined within the FCRA. To resolve this issue, the credit bureaus and their trade association developed a data format called Metro2® to enable the uniform reporting of accurate, complete, and timely credit information.

What You Will Get:

  • Understand the fundamentals of the credit reporting industry standard
  • Learn how to read a report based on the industry standard
  • Learn how to defend your disputes based on the industry standard
Using a Power of Attorney

General Description: When Congress passed the FCRA, they stated in part that “It is the purpose of [the FCRA] to require that consumer reporting agencies adopt reasonable procedures for meeting the needs of commerce for consumer credit, personnel, insurance, and other information in a manner which is fair and equitable to the consumer…” (15 USC 1681(b)). There is nothing more fair and equitable to the consumer than to allow him or her to hire the services of a trained professional to place him on equal footing to the credit industry. To do this, you should use a Power of Attorney to step into the shoes of the consumer.

What You Will Get:

  • Learn the basics of a Power of Attorney
  • The difference between the FCRA and POA law
  • Learn how to defend your disputes using a POA
Credit Repair Basics

  • Overview of the Credit Repair Organizations Act
  • Overview of state credit repair laws
Building a Solid Fact Pattern

General Description: One of the key differentiators between the Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes Method and all other credit repair methods is that this method teaches you how to think through your disputes in a way that enables you to build a solid fact pattern that can allow your client file to be turned over to a consumer protection lawyer if necessary

What You Will Get:

  • Laying the foundation with the first dispute
  • Adding to the fact pattern with each subsequent dispute and correspondence.

THE FINANCIAL FIXER® PHILOSOPHY

The Financial Fixer® philosophy is simple: Provide an integrated approach to help individuals and entrepreneurs with all of their financial issues.

Often, individuals and entrepreneurs find themselves experiencing financial difficulties or inefficiencies and the search for a solution can seem more painful than the issue itself!

Steven has been entrepreneurial all of his life and he has been dealing with credit and finances since he was 21.

“I observed that people often times don’t just have 1 type of financial issue. They often have multiple matters that are all interrelated such as credit, tax, and cash flow issues. My philosophy is to take an integrated approach to helping resolve all of the issues for a person.” – Steven Palmieri

Entrepreneurs often have business projects all over the place and their financials are a mess. Perhaps their credit got messed up or they haven’t filed taxes in several years. Or perhaps their bookkeeping and payroll is a mess and they do not have clarity into their numbers.

The Financial Fixer® philosophy allows a person to get his or her initial financial issues resolved and then implement a plan to streamline and automate as much financial work as possible.

THE THREE PILLARS OF CREDIT REPAIR PRE-LITIGATION DISPUTES

Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes consist of three pillars:

  • Use a notarized Power of Attorney to send disputes directly in the name of your credit repair company
  • Use the industry standard to understand how to read a credit report for accuracy
  • Use the data furnishers as important resources to leverage your disputes

POWER OF ATTORNEY

Many people have the misconception that a credit accuracy dispute to the credit bureaus must be sent by the consumer. Not only is this not true, this goes against the spirit of the FCRA when Congress stated that “It is the purpose of this subchapter to require that consumer reporting agencies adopt reasonable procedures for meeting the needs of commerce for consumer credit, personnel, insurance, and other information in a manner which is fair and equitable to the consumer…” (15 USC 1681(b)). There is nothing more fair and equitable to the consumer than to allow him or her to hire the services of a trained professional to place him on equal footing to the credit industry.

UNDERSTAND THE INDUSTRY STANDARD

Learn The Industry Standard for Credit Reporting Accuracy

Metro2® is the industry standard that the credit bureaus and data furnishers have created and adopted to comply with the FCRA’s requirement to report accurate, complete, and timely information. Learn key concepts on how to read a credit report based on the industry standard for accuracy.

Many people struggle with understanding how to get the fundamental basics of reading a credit report. This course will walk you through the building blocks of the industry standard so that you can more confidently:

  • Read a credit report
  • Structure accuracy disputes with leverage and confidence
  • Reasonably anticipate the potential outcomes of your dispute
  • Be aware of your follow-up options before sending your dispute.

DISPUTE WITH THE DATA FURNSIHERS

Many people only dispute with the credit bureaus and stop short of leveraging the power of disputing with the data furnishers. The Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes Method allows you to confidently and professionally dispute with the data furnishers. Since the furnishers are the source of the data that the credit bureaus have in their databases, it only makes sense that the furnishers should also be able to be effectively questioned during the credit dispute process.

Set an Unshakable Dispute Foundation

The Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes Method places an emphasis on creating a high-quality first-round dispute that lays the foundation for all subsequent disputes and communication. The way that Congress intended the Fair Credit Reporting Act to operate was for the burden to be placed on the consumer to inform the credit bureaus of their errors. But once the credit bureaus were put on notice of their errors, Congress placed the burden on both the credit bureaus and the furnishers to have “reasonable procedures” to either properly modify or delete the inaccurate item.

The way that Congress crested the FCRA enables the consumer to more easily seek legal recourse if the dispute is believed to have not been reasonably resolved after the dispute.

WHAT IS PRE-LITIGATION

The Credit Repair Pre-Litigation Disputes Method teaches that almost everything after the round 1 dispute should be treated as “pre-litigation.” In other words, it should be treated as a negotiation with the credit bureaus and furnishers that leverages the failures in the round 1 dispute to compel a deletion of the information that is believed to have not been properly corrected after the round 1.

A key concept is that credit information which remains inaccurate after round 1 and which has not been deleted is now rendered false information because the information is not authorized under the FCRA to remain reporting after 30 days unless it is corrected. In other words, an item that continues to report inaccurately after the dispute is false information because it should not be in the credit report at all.

Leveraging the power of a well-formulated round 1 dispute puts the consumer in a much better position to negotiate the pre-litigation perspective in all subsequent communication.
