(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Hampton, Jul 2, 2020 (Issuewire.com) – Certified Credit Repair Specialist Shonda Martin is issuing a new warning: beware of the sudden influx of credit repair scams, especially as America remains in a state of economic uncertainty related to the novel coronavirus.
Martin runs Road To 750, a credit repair operation recognized by the BBB. The mission to make credit repair easy and affordable. “I think now more than ever people are realizing the power that a great credit score holds,” Martin says, “People have been furloughed or laid off altogether, and have no resources besides the government’s one-time stimulus check.” Those conditions make it tempting to fall for something that turns out to be a scam.
Martin says these types of scams can take many forms, such as phishing emails asking you to validate your account information, texts allegedly from the Federal Reserve offering to partner with a local bank to fix your credit, or just unknowledgeable people sending messages to your social media inboxes claiming to be able to fix your credit fast, and for a too-good-to-be-true fee.
“Credit has become more important to survival because it can provide immediate economic stability in the face of a crisis like the one America is facing right now,” she says.
People need information. Martin just welcomed the 100,000th member into her free private Facebook Group. “I started this with 10 members as a way to share knowledge about improving our personal credit scores. Over the course of three years, we’ve had thousands of members purchase homes, buy cars, and improve their credit overall!”
The group has seen an uptick in requests to join since the onset of the pandemic. There have also been more buyers of Martin’s signature DIY credit repair program, the 6-Step Challenge System. Formed in collaboration with a legal team, the program teaches you how to repair your credit yourself, and provides the letters and documentation to send to the credit bureaus.
