Believe it or not, no one has outright removed the promotion from your credit history. Your credit report was a vital part of your existence, and has been for almost 20 years. This can be accomplished by getting a copy of your credit report (or by the Federal Trade Commission’s ‘Credit Bureau Voluntary Collection Program’ as it is called) from a public library.
After obtaining it, you and your report (or your report) – as you like to call it ‘will be merged’ into your report, commonly called your ‘file on the other side.’ This is where the FTC has put the bogus company names of other credit card companies in the Internet format.
This can be done either by going to the ‘Manage My File on the Internet’ link provided at the top of each of the ‘Manage My File on the Internet’ sites and typing in the ‘File on the Internet’ (or your report) name under the url link. You may have to enter information like your name and date of birth in the box provided.
Next, you will need to provide the FTC with your name, address, date of birth, employer and contact information for the credit card company the company provides your file with. If all this sounds familiar, it is because this is what the FTC did in 2002 to get your file on the other side, the actual company’s ‘file on the Internet’.

Also, if possible check your report to make sure that there are no errors or omissions.
2) And most importantly, be honest about your information. This is very important if you decide to sign a contract with the creditor based on information on your credit report.

The best way is To verify the information in your credit file by going to the Credit Reporting Agencies that you have examined.
You may consider contacting one such agency by phone. Not every agency in your area will have a respected financial-services organization. Even if they do, it can be very helpful to go and speak with their representatives.
It can be very helpful if you consider giving them certain facts about you that a potential creditor may need to complete a credit report. One of the most important is your financial history. Many agencies will supply a complete financial history when you send them your payment statements or credit histories. But if they do not give you their history, feel free to do so. There is very little truth in that.

It will also make it easier to contact your creditors whenever you need to write a letter to explain what happened. They may just simply not be around to make your payments.
The more information your creditors will offer you regarding your situation in light of these new facts, the more you can be sure that you will be able to make informed decisions during the best financial years of your life.
Most importantly, there are rules and policies that must be followed when you feel like you have been cheated. Those rules and policies can be researched and interpreted in your favor.
