2 months - What a feeling!

[ Edited ]
So I began the daunting prospect of  disputing with CRAs, GWs, and PFDs.  It was May 26th and I kept thinking to myself, "This is going to take forever - is it worth all the extra time?".  Well,  I stand today saying ------ YES IT IS!
 
Equifax on 5-26 = 665
Equifax on 7-26 = 768
 
Whoooo!  Thanks to every single person on this board - I couldn't have done it without you.  I have been working on my credit but never really saw much success until finding everyone here.
 
And yes, I have had my troubles.  My wife and I had to have a co-signer on our first house a few years ago.  Time will do wonders on your outlook....

That's a great increase - as long as you aren't currently disputing anything with EQ.

Nope - Thank goodness...all done with that.  Now I am in maintenance mode.  Pay everything on time - watch all bills - monitor Scorewatch and TC...

First fiscal responsibility - you have to learn that yourself.
 
Then play the FICO game - you can learn that here!!!
The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

And it is a game...
 
My one big removal was for a medical collection.  I contacted the CA and told the guy on the line I was willing to PFD.  Immediately he said, "OK".  I put together my Tuscani-inspired PDF and forwarded it to him.  When he received it he called me and told me my letter was too complicated - there was no way he was approved to follow this but take his word for it, if I paid, he would delete.  heard that before?  We talked for a while and I thought to myself, "Well, this guy could either remove my entry after getting payment as he says he will or he will lie and I will have to live with my decision".  I swallowed hard and sent a MO CMRRR.  I got the receipt back and less than a week later it was removed from all reports.  He kept his word!
 
Sometimes you make the right move, sometimes you don't.  At the end of the day, hope you made more good than bad moves.
