Lowering your util to 5% will help your scores. Getting the COs off your reports will help your scores, paying them WILL NOT. If paid off, you can try a GW letter to get em deleted. If not paid off, PFD them.

It is killing my score I think. I didnt get a PFD that has myh utilization over 90%. when the CRA update that will bring my Utilization to 5% that should help my score right?

Too bad you PIF, sometimes it's luck and sometimes it's who you send them to. Many have failed with CAP1. You could still try a GW letter, nothing to lose. When are they suppose to fail off?
