Experian, Equifax and TransUnion Contact Information

By Kevin / May 2, 2011

THIS PAGE MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. MEANING WE RECEIVE COMMISSIONS FOR PURCHASES MADE THROUGH THOSE LINKS, AT NO COST TO YOU. PLEASE READ OUR DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.

Credit Shout may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page.

The contact information here is not exhaustive, but a few important links, addresses, and numbers are listed, and the Contact Us pages for each of the three bureaus are listed for any information that you cannot find in this article.

Experts recommend disputing information on your credit report by certified mail (so you can prove that you sent it), but you don’t have to. An online application can get the job done without all the hassle of finding postage, typing or handwriting the information, and waiting for the letter to get to them. Choose whichever suits you better.

When calling the toll free numbers these bureaus have listed, often you don’t get to speak with a representative right away. If you can’t find your way through the options, there is usually an option to speak to a representative. If you can’t even find that, the secret is to press a bunch of numbers. If the automated system doesn’t understand what you are trying to say, often it will transfer you to a human representative.

My 2 cents: When dealing with the credit bureaus (and debt collectors) you want to have everything in writing. This is why it’s recommended that you still use snail mail or email, instead of just calling a 1-800 number provided on the website.
