Establishing New Lines of Credit In the third section of our comprehensive Credit Repair process, we emphasize the importance of establishing new lines of credit. While many credit repair companies may focus solely on deleting negative accounts and notations, at Patriots Credit Services, we recognize that building and managing new credit lines plays a crucial role in credit repair. We are here to guide and assist you in applying for various types of credit, including:
Secured Credit Cards: We will help you explore and apply for secured credit cards, which require a deposit and serve as an excellent starting point for rebuilding your credit.
Authorized User Accounts (AU): We can assist you in leveraging the credit of close family members or your spouse by adding you as an authorized user on their accounts. This strategy can potentially boost your credit profile.
Credit Card and Installment Builder Accounts: We will guide you through the process of obtaining credit card and installment builder accounts that are specifically designed to help you establish a positive payment history and demonstrate responsible credit usage.
Auto Loans: If you are in need of an auto loan, we can provide guidance on finding suitable financing options and assist you in the application process.
Department Store Charge Cards: We can help you navigate the application process for department store charge cards, which can be a valuable addition to your credit portfolio.
Major Credit Cards: Our team will assist you in applying for major credit cards, helping you establish a solid foundation for a diverse credit mix.

At Patriots Credit Services, we understand that establishing new lines of credit and utilizing them responsibly are vital components of credit repair. Our experts will provide personalized guidance, ensuring that you make informed decisions and follow best practices when it comes to managing your credit. By incorporating a strategic approach to new credit opportunities, you will be well on your way to achieving long-term credit repair success.
Addressing Violations and Consumer Protection In the fourth section of our Credit Repair program, we focus on addressing violations of crucial consumer protection acts such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), the Fair Credit Billing Act (FCBA), and numerous others. As consumers, we are supported by over 200 such acts, which serve as powerful tools in our pursuit of credit repair goals. At Patriots Credit Services, we have partnered with a reputable nationwide law firm specializing in deceptive business practices, enabling us to leverage these laws to your advantage. Should violations be identified, we can utilize them to help you seek financial compensation and potentially even delete negative notations or accounts.
Among the prohibited actions by collection agencies, some violations include:
Mentioning to Damage Your Credit Score: Collection agencies are not allowed to make threats or falsely claim that they will harm your credit score as a means to coerce payment.
Calling Before 8:00 a.m. or After 9:00 p.m.: Collection agencies must adhere to specific time restrictions and cannot contact you outside of reasonable hours.
Contacting Your Relatives or Neighbors: Collection agencies are prohibited from disclosing information about your debts to your relatives or neighbors.
Using Abusive or Profane Language: Collection agencies must maintain a professional and respectful demeanor and are not permitted to use abusive or profane language during communications.
Calling You at Work if You Told Them Not To: If you have informed a collection agency that you cannot receive calls at your workplace, they are legally required to respect your request.
Avoiding Validation on a Disputed Account: Collection agencies must provide validation of a disputed account upon request, ensuring transparency and accountability.
The accounts that fall under this section primarily include open collection accounts and charge-off accounts with remaining balances. By identifying violations and leveraging the associated consumer protection acts, we can potentially assist you in claiming financial compensation of up to $1,000. This step can contribute significantly to your credit score, accounting for approximately 30% of its composition.
Through our partnership with a specialized law firm and our deep understanding of consumer protection acts, we aim to rectify violations, assert your rights as a consumer, and work towards resolving negative accounts and notations. At Patriots Credit Services, we are committed to utilizing every available resource to ensure a fair and just credit repair process for our clients.
