Have you ever tried faxing to the Credit Bureau?

June 11, 2019

Perhaps the scenario below sounds familiar:

“The credit bureau requested that I fax them the SNN and Drivers license. I’ve done this 3 times, each time waiting 48 hours. Each time it says the fax when through.  I call to inquire, they claim they haven’t received the documents. 

At that point I re-confirm the fax number and send them again (hence the 3 times). Still no receipt.  Who is getting the information?”

First there is the issue of getting the fax number.  Credit bureaus often change the fax number.  Once you do find the right number, the fax number is busy because so many people are trying to do the same thing.   Also the credit bureau can block numbers that are constantly sending in notifications.  The end results is that they are not getting faxes, they are not getting dispute letters, address update forms, verification letters, or anything!

Disputes are best done on paper, in the mail.  Can you fax?  Yes absolutely.  But sending it by postal mail is the more reliable way to accomplish this.  If you are looking for an easy, online way to send mail, PostalMethods has a solution for you.  We have thousands of customers who send their letters online daily.   PostalMethods will do the work for you.  Give us a call today and let us help you with your mailing needs.
