Very last baddie is gone! TU up 40 EQ up 50!

[ Edited ]

I've been staring at this for three hours and I still can't believe it.

 

Since 2/08 I've been watching and learning and acting on the advice here.

 

I've got new accounts, combined accounts, closed subprime accounts, got CLI's, done a successful HIPPA medical dispute, steered toward the right "pullers" and away from the wrong pullers, called backdoor numbers for CLI's and fee waivers, called OC's (but never CA's), PIF'ed all accounts (yes, it's a ding), and left only one account <9%.

 

And here it is: TU 754 EQ 744 EX 749 (R.I.P.)

 

I can't begin to thank everyone who gives freely of their experiences, and express how much this means to me and my family.

 

Thank you all!

Yes it is!

 

I had a paid med CO on TU and EQ and a judgment on EQ. They would not go above low 690's no matter what. I finally got the CO off by HIPPA in February.

 

The TU went down for PIF'ing all accounts to 683 (?) and then in March with the CO falling off, it went to 714. Suddenly today I'm at 754!

 

The EQ was unfazed by 0% util, and stayed in low 690's even when the CO fell off. The judgment was from May 1, 2002. So today I checked and <POOF> it is gone. EQ is now 744.

 

Whew, seven years is a long time.

And by the way, for all those terrified of re-bucketing, that is what caused jaysdad2k's score to leap: he's now out of the public record bucket and into the clean history bucket.

Just as easy to go up as down when you're re-bucketed.
