Re: Credit Card info help

I got a personal loan today at a local bank for $10,000 based on redepositing that money in a bank CD. $468 a month for two years and reporting every month. After two years, Ill own the $10,000 and hopefully a way better CS.

Re: Credit Card info help

that's the way to go to but you also gotta take others advice for goodwill and stuff.....i mean of course they would help your credit score in a long term but i think its better for you to make a 2 3 years plan. Im sure you would going to hit your target score and goodluck.

Re: Credit Card info help

Late payments that are less than 2 years old will REALLY drag your scores down. You should be able to have them removed and I can see that you have started the process. You may have to send several rounds of GW letters until they agree to delete them.

 

Your scores should really start to climb once your cards start reporting. Once your scores get above 640 you might consider applying for a Walmart card as your next card.
