I had a couple of lucrative business ideas I was going to start up at the beginning of the year so as to quit my job but stupid divorce buried  me to my neck in debt coupled with a low credit score and negative items on my report.

So I contacted him from a credit blog, he was able to get Capital One to completely delete their tradeline off all 3 of my reports. He did the same on my second account; and also cleans off my student loan of $54,000 and I got a high score of 795, he has been completely transparent and extremely communicative.
