Agreement Prepared for:
A3 Consultation does not charge for credit repair services until work has been completed per enrolled account. The investigation process typically requires between two and four letter rounds per enrolled account to determine if it is valid, accurate, legal, or unfair. You are requesting and authorizing investigations into your information you believe to be inaccurate, outdated, or unfair. You are responsible to notify us if any accounts are accurate and should not be investigated. If accounts are determined to be accurate during your program, investigations for those accounts will stop and other solutions will be provided.
Credit Repair Services:
The following services are included in your credit repair program and may be provided at various times throughout:
Fees and Terms of Service:
Our credit repair services are not charged until after the investigation has been completed per enrolled account based on earned and proven performance. However, you are responsible to pay the service expenses required to provide service. To continue to receive credit repair services you must pay your vendor expense and performance fees when due.
Service Expense Fee: $89.99 per month. The service expense fee covers the cost of your credit reports and scores, FDCPA/FCRA violation protections, and printing and postage. A3 Consultation may receive a small referral fee from some vendors. If you do not pay the service expense fee, your access to your credit reports, FDCPA/FCRA violation protections, and credit repair services will be suspended. After your credit repair program is completed, you have the option to keep your credit report subscription and other membership benefits that maybe available.
Performance and Results Incentive Fee: $20.00 per account, per bureau for each tradeline account, social security number, date of birth, inquiry, or public record corrected or deleted. The fee is charged per enrolled account based on proven performance using a correction/deletion notice from the reporting company, comparing the enrollment credit report to a current credit report, legal document, settlement agreement, or other official correspondence.
Defaulted Debt Account or Student Loan Phone Assistance Fee: CGC provides free coaching and guidance to help clients resolve any tradeline or student loan accounts in default. If client would like CGC staff to join phone calls to provide a higher level of assistance, a flat fee of $75.00 per account/creditor will be charged. Client must still join and participate on the calls, which usually takes between two to four calls per account/creditor. Client is responsible for any payments to creditors or collectors.

The credit bureau must include a summary of your statement about disputed information with any report it issues about you.
