Re: Help! I need help getting my credit score up to atleast 650 from 582!

I have a freeze on my account Bc of some fraudulent things that were on it about a few yrs ago. So even w a 582 I keep getting denied for even secured cc's. I'm going to try and remove the freeze but that seems to take a while. Then wait atleast a month to avoid hard hits to my credit scored.

Op, I am unclear.  Is your credit file empty or are there negatives on it?

I'm moving soon, and was leaning towards purchasing a condo oppose to renting again. I have a credit score of 582 and need to get it pass a 620 to even be eligible to apply to most morgage loans. I want to apply for a secured credit card, but not sure which one to go with. I also want to be added to someonesaccount as an AU user, just don't have any one at the time. An other ways, or credit cards I may be able to appy to that can help increase my credit score in less than 4 mth??


Cap1 secured. Increase the deposit to 1K or more.

 

You may also want to app for a 2nd secured card, possibly with a credit union. FICO likes at least 2-3 CC's reporting for good point increases.

They are not considered ethical to use here on the forum. They prefer that you do not mention them. In most cases, advice here on the "rebuilding your credit" forum can do the same thing Lexington Law can do and without costing you nearly as much money.

LL is okay.  Just a matter of whether or not you want to get educated and have enough time/effort to do yourself.  Or pay the XX a month and have them help.

I was actually refering to your reports being fozen. But it's true what was said about Lexington Law. Anyway sorry I didn't get back to this tread for a few days. Good luck!
