Re: Success Stories and Encouragement - Good Will Letters Do Work!

[ Edited ]

There is an account that was supposed to be removed from my credit report in November 2007, but it is still showing. Can I dispute it and tell them that it should be removed from my credit report? Is it ok to have more than 5 disputes within a year?  Also, I have disputed many other bad collection accounts that I had in my credit report. They were all removed.  My credit score went from a 519 in October to 668 in December, and I am trying to get it higher. If I can get them to delete this account, I know that my score will go way higher.

So far as I know, there is no adverse impact on your credit score if you have a lot of disputes. If there were, I suspect there'd be a class action lawsuit against Fair Isaac as one's creditworthiness would then be adversely impacted by the bumble-headedness of the CRAs.

Re: Success Stories and Encouragement

I'm not jealous over anyones score I have my own and it is a snapshot of me.
I believe in FICO despite the people who get things erased. HEY i've been there too and I did it on my own. I learned the rules at 19 I am now 38 and continued to learn read learn and read.
FICO knows who you are you can get things deleted but you know in the end YOU are who you are and it will let the banking world know it. I can listen and tell where a person is FICO score wise.  I hear numbers. you tell me a little bit bout you and I got your score already added up.. SO why do I say this.......well...I really don't know.. Perhaps I am the most crazy and talkative person when it comes to credit. I will battle it out between anyone that challenges me. Of course I don't know everything but I love the subject of credit and I am good at it. Are there any more Guru's out there?
 FICO is  about the change the rules...slightly and I can't wait. Fico is great already to me....but just to think of them being even better.
Credit scoring helps the banking industry know their risk. It keeps the market safe. So when people talk of the housing markets notice they talk about subprime....Hmmm subprime are for the folks who had messed up credit in the first place....Betcha bank of america and chase and all of those banks who gave out traditional mortgage loans do not have the same problem, becuase people had to have the scores and the money to get a loan. Subprime was the governements way of turning a deaf ear to FICO. When those horrific credit scores were pulled up by FICO, they should have heard the word "NO" but the governemnt continued to make money available for this risk and said that everyone deserves the American Dream . They ignored FICO and now look at it... but as I say America is a machine we can bounce back from anything.....
THANK GOODNESS FOR FICO.  

Starting Score: EQ 730 TU 721
Current Score: EQ 730 TU 710
Goal Score: 800 to 850

Try credit scoring 101 thread, and read some of the threads.  There is a TON of good advice here.
 
A good place to start is free credit reports to find out WHY your scores are so low

The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
