Credit Reports: How to Dispute Any Negative Item 
by Brian Thompson August 26, 2005

When to Dispute

There are certain times of the year when disputing items with the credit bureaus can be more fruitful. The best time to send disputes to the credit bureaus is December. The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s is filled with holidays. This gives the bureaus less time and fewer people to investigate disputes. In addition, the companies to whom they are sending disputes have less time and fewer people to respond.

Another important piece of information is that dispute letters can be sent every month. Simply because your dispute letter in July did not bring favorable results does not mean that you should stop. Send another one in August. Every time that a dispute is sent, an investigation must be done. This is one area where persistence can truly pay off.
