Re: Consumer Finance Loans

I don't think you can get them off.  FICO does not really like them, but if they are all good payment histories it is better than bad payment histories.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Consumer Finance Loans

I wonder them being so old if they are hurting your score?
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

How thin or full is your report? I think a solid, credible argument could be made that since these are negative TLs you could dispute them with the CRAs as too old to report. I say dispute them.
