Amex BCP 25K ~ Amex Clear 25K ~ Amex Platinum NPSL ~ Chase Freedom Visa 19.3K ~ CITI Dividend World Mastercard 20.3K ~ FIA Fidelity Investments Platinum Plus Visa 40K ~ First Hawaiian Bank Gold Visa 10K

Re: I just dont get it!!!!confused HELP

I applied for blue sky amex I heard they just pull experian, I also applied for chase, turned down and I applied for bp gas card aslo turned down.
 I have to judgements that are on my account  that are both paid.
tranUnion show one of them not being paid so Iam disputing it. Equifax reports just one and it shows paid and Experien show no judgements on the report.
Now I did have alote of stuff in collections and they are all paid off. I just dont know what else to do. Iam trying to get a few more cards. I will only use 9 percent of the bal. to bring up my scores>I need to refi my home soon. Iam just trying to up the scores Any suggestions? I dont want to keep applying and getting turned down. because it will lower my score.
Thanks alote

Since your baddies are paid, all you can really hope for are successful GW letters. It's worth a shot!
Credit Cards:
Amex BCP 25K ~ Amex Clear 25K ~ Amex Platinum NPSL ~ Chase Freedom Visa 19.3K ~ CITI Dividend World Mastercard 20.3K ~ FIA Fidelity Investments Platinum Plus Visa 40K ~ First Hawaiian Bank Gold Visa 10K

Re: I just dont get it!!!!confused HELP

just out of curiousity, who do you exactly send the GW letters to? the CRAs or to the actual credit card company? Still trying to figure all this out. Thanks :smileyhappy:

Send GW letter to the parties who are reporting the negatives that are paid. Not the CRA's. 
Credit Cards:
Amex BCP 25K ~ Amex Clear 25K ~ Amex Platinum NPSL ~ Chase Freedom Visa 19.3K ~ CITI Dividend World Mastercard 20.3K ~ FIA Fidelity Investments Platinum Plus Visa 40K ~ First Hawaiian Bank Gold Visa 10K

Re: I just dont get it!!!!confused HELP

I sent them out to capial one and countrywide, I also sent some of them out the the collection companys but have not hear anything yet. countrywide said no and I have not heard from capital one.
The collection companys have not yet to respond. Today I did send out a GW to tranUnion on seeing if they would remove the judgements.
thanks
