what do i need to do for a 350?

does anyone know how horrible your credit has to be to get down to 350-399?  i am thinking about going there and then working my way back up.  just for fun.

Given the inherent silliness of the post, and in response only to the subject, I would say bore it out 60 one thousands then install a high rise intake manifold and 4 bbl Holley.

BK
Fed Tax Lien
State Tak Lien
Global Tax Lien :smileysad:  JK
Foreclosures maybe 2
REPO
SL Default
25 CAs
25 COs
DMP that's failing miserably
100 120 day lates
2,000 inqs
0 CC TLs
 
 
Am I forgetting something?

Use a CRO. Otherwise I think you covered everything.

Believe it or not, library fines and traffic citations are two that will at times go to collections.

Most of these will get you down into the high 300s.
 
But to really hit that magical 350, you have to pay for MyFico SW via check, and bounce it. :smileytongue:

Unpaid traffic tickets can haunt seemingly forever.
 
I would say hunt around your state's statutes and see what you can find. From '95, they may or may not have records, particularly if it ended at the courthouse and never made it to the DMV. Probably do NOT wanna call DMV and ask. You might resurrect a zombie.
