    Corrections given to them any other way seem to go poof.  

    And it seems to work best if you discuss only a single error in each letter.  

    You also have to work your way back to the company that supplied the erroneous information to the credit bureau and get that company to correct its records, too.

    It is laborious, yes, and plays into the hands of identity thieves who know the odds are in their favor of getting away with pretending to be someone else for years because consumers don't check their reports.
