One credit bureau is not any easier to work with than the other. They are all difficult to work with. In the past 6 months these have been some telephone numbers that consumers have used to successfully speak to a live person at the credit bureaus.
The credit bureaus are known for long hold times and automated systems – this is part of the frustration. Obtaining the assistance by phone of a live person at the credit bureaus can be very challenging!
