This is important to me as I have a relatively short credit history in the States, and one of my two old accounts (9 years) does not report to EX
According to an accredited Credit Counseling Agency:
Check each credit report for missing accounts. A smaller or local creditor may not have reported your account information to a credit bureau. If the information is positive, you can ask the bureau to add it to your report (for a fee) although it might not be updated.
Anyone heard of this or tried it?
