Errors that can’t be verified

Suppose you have negative things in your credit report from a lender who is no longer in business. There is chance that credit bureaus will call that lender to verify information, and if they have not received any feedback it can show up negatively on your credit report. These are also the types of things that a credit repair service provider can do.
