Dispute Errors on Your Credit File By Mail

Remove Inquiries from your credit

How do I correct or dispute inaccuracies on my credit file by mail?

You may want to contact each of your creditors and make sure that they have your personal information correct in their records.  Updating your personal information with your creditors will help to make sure that information reported to the credit bureaus by your creditor is correct.

If you believe that any item of information contained in your credit file is incomplete or inaccurate and notify the credit bureaus directly, they will investigate the item free of charge. Based on the results of the investigation, they will either update the current status of the disputed information (which may include letting you know if the furnisher of the information verified it was reporting correctly) or delete the item from your file.

You should dispute errors by mail if we are unable to process your request online, or if you prefer to track the dispute through certified mail.


To request an investigation by U.S. mail, please print and complete this form and mail to the following address:
