We contacted MyCreditGroup many times to evaluate its customer service. Company representatives were helpful through phone and gave transparent, consistent and accurate information. After our initial phone call, MyCreditGroup additionally followed up to check if we had any other questions. But, we did not get a response to our email inquiries.

The number of features the service disputes at one time differs.
