natural disaster - Get Good Credit

The past few years have shown mother nature to be as active as ever when it comes to tornadoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes. Natural weather phenomena can affect anyone all over the world, and scammers know this.

Unscrupulous people will try to exploit some natural disasters by pretending to offer services to people affected by those disasters. These services include repairing any damage done to people’s properties, helping to act as a middleman between you and FEMA, or offering housing during times of trouble.

However, it’s important to realize what’s a scam and what isn’t, so here are a few things to keep an eye out for when it comes to natural disaster scams that have been popping up all over the nation.

Red Flags of a Disaster Scam

Luckily, there are a common set of red flags anyone can look out for to make sure that they will not become a victim of a scam.

Apartment listings tend to pop up after a natural disaster offering services to those who have been affected. If you find a landlord or agent who demands money or payment before signing a lease or touring the apartment, it’s a scam.

What to Do After a Natural Disaster

The stress and hardship after a natural disaster is disheartening, but it’s important to keep a level-headed attitude about the situation to make sure you do not get taken advantage of or extraneously pay for repairs for property damage.


Be safe during and after a disaster and be sure to keep your head about you. It’s important to be wary of people who might exploit the situation and get money for themselves. If you are a victim of a scam during these hard times, make sure to report it to your local authorities and state attorney general. You can also file a report at reportfraud.ftc.gov.

  •   Ok so I've been holding off writing this review for about 7 months. And as you can see by the 5 stars I left I'm beyond happy with the services this company provided me. I was skeptical at 1st even though they had stellar reviews (which is why I chose them) but there's always that thing in the back of my mind of "well they probably won't be able to help me though, I will be that exception they cant fix". Needless to say they absolutely crushed getting EVERY collection I had off my report!!! I had about 5 grand worth of stuff on there that they managed to make disappear like magic. My credit has shot up over 150 points! I cannot say enough good things about them. I even referred my coworker to them after and they sent me a $50 referral check back! If you're looking to clean up your credit, don't wait, call these superstars and get on your way to feeling confident about your credit again. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I'm so grateful. Thank you fix your credit!!!

  •   I worked with Mia and Said for over a year, I believe. They were beneficial and responsive. Although we were not successful with all of my accounts, they still helped me raise my credit by about 100 points. So I stand satisfied. I recommend them. Not to mention there prices are very competitive. Thank you all.

  •   I called this place about 3 months when I decided it was time to fix my credit.   I spoke with Mia, she walked me thought the whole process in a 5 minute phone conversation.  It was simple enough so I decided to pull the trigger and signed up.  Its only been 3 months and already they have removed negative items and improved my score significantly.   I strongly recommend to give them a call as soon as possible, I waited too long and I wish I would have called sooner. I will update in a few months with the final results.
