Easy and Stress-Free Credit Dispute Letter Templates
If you had an item on your credit report that could be solved using , would you know where to find one and how to use it? When you need to dispute an item on your credit report it is important to arm yourself with knowledge and the right tools for a successful outcome.
In this article, let's take a look at the issues you may encounter when trying to write your credit dispute letter, and for using a credit dispute letter template.
Writing Your Credit Dispute Letter
Even if you consider yourself to be somewhat savvy when it comes to getting things down on paper, you might find writing your credit dispute letter a bit out of your comfort zone.
Before you write a single word, you need to know which type of credit dispute letter you need to send. There are three, and let's look at each of them now.
|609 Credit Report Dispute Letters||This is the type of letter you send to the credit agencies when you want verification of an item in your credit report. If the information cannot be verified then the item on your credit report should be removed by law.|
|611 Credit Report Dispute Letters||Section 611 of the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) lets you send this type of letter when you get a negative outcome on your Section 609 credit dispute letter. In this letter, you ask the credit bureaus to look at the debt and to remove it if it cannot be verified.|
|623 Credit Report Dispute Letters||The 623 letter is a last-ditch effort to have the item removed from your credit report. These are the letters that are sent to third-party debt collectors, and you are asking them to prove that this debt belongs to you. This is also called debt validation.|
And there is also a fourth type of letter you can send – a General Dispute Letter. In this letter, you don't invoke any aspect of the FCRA and you send this letter along with all the proper documentation directly to the credit provider in hopes it can be removed.
Which One, What, and Where?
Now that you know which type of letter to send, let's look at the things you will need to send along with your FCRA credit dispute letter.
- Your personal information
- Items to prove your identity (copy of a state-issued driver's license or state-issued photo identification)
- Your disputed information (what item is in question)
- Source of the disputed information
- Date(s) of the disputed item
- Account numbers if any
- Your explanation of why this is disputed
- Documentation to back your claim
Now, you will need to send the letter to the right place. Here is a brief explanation of where each type of letter should be sent.
- General dispute letters should be sent directly to the party that has made this claim against you.
- 609 dispute letters are sent to the credit agencies such as a bank or other lender, much like where the General dispute letters are sent. The 609 just lets the party know that you're invoking your Section 609 rights according to the FCRA.
- 611 dispute letters are to be sent directly to the credit bureau for them to verify the disputed item according to your Section 611 rights of the FCRA.
- 623 dispute letters are sent to third party debt collectors for debt validation according to Section 611 of the FCRA

Trying to get the right dispute letter along with the right documentation in front of the right people is like trying to count the grains of sand on a beach! Confusing? Yes. Frustrating? Yes. Do you have the patience to do this? Maybe, maybe not.
