Does the credit bureau really make up the FICO score or the loan officer and why I get a recorder on the phone?

And why they put information form tens, then it take tens years to get it off?

    Creditors pay membership fees to belong to credit bureaus. When they call or fax to get a credit report with a FICO score, they pay for that.

    You get a recording because you are not a business that is a member of the credit bureau. If you do get a person on the phone, they probably won't be able to help you. They pretty much just take messages.

    Derogatory items age off your credit report 7-1/2 years from the date of first delinquency. Nothing restarts that clock. If you have items older, send the credit bureau a dispute.

    Loan officers do not "make up credit scores." See here:
