Okay so this a backround on my brothers Credit report.
Cap 1 secured - 6mo 500cl
Us Bnk Securd - 6 mo 300 cl
Open Sky Sec - 5 mo 200cl
Boa Secured - 5mo 1000cl
Discover AU - 8mo 5500cl
Chase AU - 6mo 3000cl
Home Dept AU- 5yrs 3800cl
cap1-900bal charged off -2009 - unpaid
1stP- 500bal charged off- 2009 - unpaid
Scores: 6months ago 530 EQ Today 656 EQ
Will those AU with Higher CL and more history in them,
Will it count towards his AOA. also will he be able to get his own discover,chase and prime cards
with CL in 4 figure limits, when applying next month.
will it help getting approved with alot of satisfacotry accounts or does it hurt the situation. 4 of my accounts and 3 AU accounts with High CL.
Or are AU worthless and have the CC companies caught on to this trick.?
I heard people with just 8 months of new history with no AU gettings into prime cards with decent limits
Thanks alot. I'm really greatful for the usefull info here. So i try my best to help others without the info we posses.

Kick out discover and chase. New open trade line will short you AAOA.. Dispute o 3 credit credit reporting and ccredits cover ,chase to remove AU

why would removing a AU thats has 4 more months of history then his own cards HURT his score?
HIs score before getting secureded cards were 530 EQ. after secureds and AU it went to 656 EQ
there is 2 unpaid charged off collections on report from 2009 ( is it better to pay these off? but im worried that it will renew the date of the 7 years?)
one from Cap 1, and One from 1st Priemr.
His utiliz is 9% he has 3 inq on EQ
Also I'm thinking it would be better if he waited another 6 months before applying
so all his accounts plus AU is over 1 yr point. This would help alot im guessing.
