I want to add a statement as to the reason of my bad credit from about seven years ago. How do I do it?


Adding a statement explaining collection accounts to your credit report

Dear Experian,

Can I include a letter in my credit report to explain a charge off or collection?


Notify your lenders when you know you will be facing financial difficulty

Dear Experian,

I am wondering if we should let the three national credit reporting companies know that due to the recession right now we are having difficulty with some of our payments. We have had no work for two years and are really struggling at the moment. My husband is on disability but is still looking for work. Our credit up to this point has been good.
