Repairing Your Credit

We've all seen the ads with the pie in the sky claims.  "We can remove bankrupties" or "late pays and non payments will disappear".  The reality of the situation is that this is just not true.  Repairing your credit can be done, however the same rules that apply to all of us apply to these companies as well.
