Bills such as utilities are not reported to CRAs unless they go to collections. Bills that get reported are CC..auto loans...personal loans...mortgage. Also they are only reported on the owner's or AU CR. It doesn't make a difference who makes the payments.

The service is opened up in her name, but I'm the primary user.When I move, she'll either cancel the service or attempt to use it. She's 66 and would like to learn how to use her own PC.
