The Credit Pros Review 2021

The Credit Pros Review 2021

Bad credit can follow you for almost seven years and seriously impact your personal finance journey. While The Credit Pros is relatively new to the industry, the New Jersey-based company appeared on the credit repair company scene quite fast.

The company features the use of FICO (three credit bureaus-Equifax, Experian, and Transunion) specialists dedicated to working on each customer’s case file.

In the following review of The Credit Pros’ services, we’ll go over the firm’s pros & cons, what you can expect from their service, and a few frequently asked questions.

Company Background

The Credit Pros is owned by Jason M. Kaplan, an attorney and credit educator, who specializes in the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

He is a certified Credit Counselor and FICO Consultant. Kaplan created The Credit Pros with the desire to use his understanding of the law to help others repair their credit.

He built the company by employing experienced FICO experts and credit counselors to help clients navigate the complicated process of credit remediation.

What We Like About The Credit Pros

The credit repair services offered by The Credit Pros include certified FICO professionals who assist in credit building, credit monitoring for identity theft, and credit management. They also give the option to have public records errors deleted.

They offer a free consultation and offer a 90-day money-back guarantee in regard to your credit disputes. The process is relatively quick, starting within 3-5 business days.

The design of the website is clean, simple, and generally user-friendly. Contacting them is easy via a pop-up menu in the lower right corner of the website. TCP now offers a mobile app with easy access to your client portal.

We appreciate founder Jason Kaplan’s desire to be a transparent and engaged owner. His name, contact information, and biography are readily available on the site for potential clients to evaluate.

A simple Google search returns generally positive reviews of the business, including the BBB A rating (as of this review, October 2020).

The amount of time it takes for each individual to have their credit information fully repaired will vary based on circumstance.

They did not rank in the top 5 in our research of the best credit repair companies.

What We Dislike About The Credit Pros

The Credit Pros (TCP) now appears to have moved to a more traditional, monthly-fee approach (rather than their old model of ‘fee for service’). So, the below paragraph no longer applies.

Although we love the simplistic design of the website, the business should expand the text of the site to allow for a better and more thorough explanation of their services.

Additionally, we would like to see them list the names and profiles of their team of FICO experts that they will assign to individual customers.

They do not report the results that an average consumer receives after using their service.

The Credit Pros has only been in business since 2009. It is possible that their strong reputation could be the result of not being in operation long enough to accumulate blemishes.

There are two distinct disadvantages associated with The Credit Pros:

  1. Customers may be ‘oversold’ on services. While The Credit Pros does offer a wide variety of services, customers may find themselves being enticed to pay for services that they would not otherwise need.
  2. They do not list the process by which negative credit items are deleted. This information is helpful for customer reassurance and serves to empower customers in the instance that they wish to take independent action. We would like to see The Credit Pros implement learning modules and feature information on what actions an individual may take on their website like other comparable credit repair agencies.

What Results Can You Expect from The Credit Pros?

Although results vary for each individual, most clients can expect at least some credit issues to be removed from their credit report.

Correspondence with the FICO expert will give them a greater understanding of their own credit and their rights vis-a-vis creditors.

They state on their website their customers can expect:

  • Assistance with the deletion of erroneous credit damage including goodwill letters, dispute letters, cease and desist, and debt validation letters.
  • Practical and honest credit advice regarding their credit profiles.

No. They do not currently offer discounts for any of the above scenarios as some other companies like Lexington Law.

  1. Very Bad. They Don’t Do That Much Good Resolute For You. They Wanna Keep You For 12 Month Just To Make Extra Money From You. Beware From The Credit Pros. I Did Loss $1000 With Them And No Results. Not Recommended At All!!!

  2. I am a credit pros consumer. So far i am satisfied with them The only thing iI would like is some way can see how my account is doing. once a month I would like someone to email me a monthly statement. I think i

  3. Im a new member of cridit pros i hope i dont have to cancel my plan with them but ill hold on and see what happens. so far ive reciced good service.

  4. Credit pros is a scam. They told me with my credit it will take maximum 6 months. 2 years later they have barely done anything. I stopped paying them and told them I’ve paid a year and a half over, I also said since they took my money for so long and done a fraction of what they said they will, I told them to finish the service I had more than paid for…. they didn’t. Never heard anything from them again. Credit pros are good at taking your money with fake promises. DO NOT HIRE CREDIT PROS!!!!!

  5. Thanks for the reviews everyone. I am here because I was considering hiring them to begin working on my credit. Thank God for reviews, my decision has been made.

  6. Have had the success package for 4 months, very little happening. An old car loan has been removed from one CRA, but not other two majors. Some new items have appeared that are way out of date so no idea why. Troubled because they reported that some items had been deleted but when I checked my report independently they hadn’t; they changed my portal once I informed them of “mistake?” Also, can get Hutton Chase credit line directly, CP charged extra to include it in success package. I’ve read their letters and am amazed an attorney is running this firm, but I’m committed for a few more months to see if something finally breaks my way.

  7. The “Credit Pros”? More like The Scam Pros. They ran my credit card without my authorization after literally blowing up my phone everyday for me to accept their service. Once they have your money good luck reaching out to them. They also sold me a “$1,500 Credit Line” that never appeared on my credit therefore it was a complete lie. I deleted my credit card and told them I was not interested in their fake scam any longer and yet somehow ran my credit card yet again. I reported it to my credit card and filed fraud. This company is a complete fraud and scam. DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR FAKE SERVICES.

  8. The Credit Pros are the worst when it comes to automatically taking money out of your bank. I had asked if they could hold off for 2 months, there was a lack of communication & they only did one month. This overdrew my account & I had to borrow money to cover it. I had phoned them up to ask if they would put it back, & the girl was nasty about it. Now I had been with them for awhile at this point, so I figured they would surely do this as I am a good customer, but to my dismay— NO CHANCE! They did fix my credit though which any company can do, it all depends on how much money you want to spend. Some are more expensive than others so shop around.

  9. I am seriously considering cancelling my membership because I spoke with a lady last week & explained my financial situation. I made a partial payment & said I’d call the following Mon. Well, I did & you were closed. I also BEGGED her NOT TO RUN either card for the remaining $50 but what did she do?? Ran the card & now i am screwed until I get my firdt full payche’k. I’ve spoken to bank & they suggested I talk to you & if we can’t work it out, we WILL disput it!

    1. Years ago the credit Pros actually helped me. However due to an identity theft I contacted them again. So far I received absolutely no results from them. They took my money. They overcharged me but they actually gave me a refund and then they tell me I am on something that they called minimum service. What the heck is that? Whenever I tried to schedule an appointment they never call. I am so very disappointed in the unprofessionalism of this group. Once upon a time they did help me but at that time I had a six-figure salary and I really didn’t need their help. Now I am a disabled stroke victim and I desperately need their help, I guess I will go with Lexington Law.
