The Credit People does not get a “recommend” from Credit Repair Reporter since their past has been littered with a history of skirting the law and unhappy clients.

Once upon a time, DSI Solutions (which changed its name to repairbad-credit.com – and then to reorgainzed under the name “The Credit People”) was one of the big dogs on the block. But iffy practices have relegated them to the bottom of the stack.

Under the DSI BBB report, it states that they are charging upfront for services yet to be performed, which is a big no-no under the federal credit repair regulations. This is a big red flag and normally leads to other problems.

Another big red flag is their site refers to being in business for more than ten years, but their BBB site shows them registering in 2012. This is a case of trying to have your cake and eat it too: Since their DSI profile was so badly tainted, they re-established their brand name, but wanted to hang onto their “history” as a credit repair company. Well, that “history” is tattered with upset clients™so much so that they’ve given up on the DSI name™so they shouldn’t claim it.

As a straight-forward credit repair company, this is how The Credit People stacks up::

The Credit People Price
Price

$299 Flat Fee

It’s a different way of charging for services: $19/setup and just three payments of $99 (or $297 all at once). While The Credit People argue that an ongiong monthly fee will draw out the credit repair process, we think that getting the money up front will deter ongoing good service.
