TU and EX have one collection on them that is pulling my score down, everything else is about the same as my EQ report. I am trying to get the best mortgage rates but i probably would need a middle score of 720. Would applying for a CC company that just pulls from EQ help me out since my score is so high or should I just wait to get that collection off? I sent the CA a DV letter in November and they haven't responded.

It is now reported on my account as closed as of 12/01. Maybe they won't verify this time and I can get it removed. It's only a $100.00 collection. Would it suffice to say that since they closed the account I can't pay it off?
