There are many companies out there who say they are willing to help you fix your credit. There are a number of credit repair companies that are legitimate and efficient in restoring your good name. Then there are a number of companies that are nothing more than scams. And somewhere in between there are companies that make false promises, offer sub-standard service, exaggerate results, tell half-truths, and/or ignorantly engage in illegal practices. With so many different options, how do you decide which one is best for you?
