How to Correct Bankruptcy Entries On Your Credit Report


Credit reports are often wrong, so make sure you frequently review your credit profile and dispute any entries that are not correct. After bankruptcy, credit repair should be a top priority. It is never too soon to start working to building back your credit score.
