Many states have passed laws regulating credit repair companies. This may help if you have lost money to credit repair scams.
Even if your state has no such law, you still may have legal rights against the company. Plus, by reporting the incident, you can help ensure that others aren't victimized.
If you've had a problem with a credit repair company, don't be embarrassed to report it or assume it's not worth your time. Contact the Attorney General's office. You also may contact the Federal Trade Commission. While the FTC does not handle individual cases, it can act when it sees a pattern of possible law violations develop.
