Re: Credit report of _______________
Dear Sir or Madam:
Under section 611(b) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, I am requesting the following consumer statement be inserted in my credit report exactly as I have written it:
"On 00/00/00 I and [number of employees] other employees of [name of employer] were laid off due to [reason why laid off]. As a result, I fell behind paying my debts. I found employment on [date found employment] and began catching up paying my delinquent debts. My overall credit report shows an excellent payment history. If it weren't for losing my job, I would still have a perfect credit rating. I believe the late payments associated with the [name of creditor] account are not a true reflection of my creditworthiness."
Please send me an updated copy of my credit report once the above statement has been added to my credit report. Thank you very much.
