I'm not sure if it counts as "rebuilding", but here's my scenario: I've had a CC's since the age of 18. I've NEVER been late, or missed a payment. So, I always assumed my credit was "excellent". I obtained a mortgage, financed cars, and never really payed attention to my FICO.
In 2005, I went to a Lucky Brand Jeans store, applied for a credit card, and I was denied. I was in a state of shock. I thought my identity was stolen. My reason for denial, was due to the fact that I had too much outstanding debt. My scores at the time were: EQ 680, TU 603, and EX 650. I was dumbfounded, as my FICO knowledge was not what it was today.
I paid of 53K in CC debt from May 2005-present. I now have 800 scores on all 3 reports, and always PIF. That denial was a HUGE wake up call for me, and changed my life for the better.

Most have been in the high 500's low 600's. Debt and # cards reporting a balance was my primary problem.
LOL my available credit back then was far less then total usage I have now. Even at 1% or 0% util!
