66 point jump!

66 point jump!

I have seen my first score increase within less than a month of joining these forums! 66 points!!

 

Thanks for all of the advice everyone. I was able to get two disputed collections off of my credit report and am waiting on the 3rd one to be removed within the next few weeks for an even bigger jump!! It's pretty amazing how much lack of awareness affects your credit in such a negative way; these boards are definitely the best resource I have found in becoming more financially educated Smiley Happy

Re: 66 point jump!

I just started and have learned a lot. Called time warner to pay an old coll that's being reported by a ca and was told it was for an early term fee. I said what! Been trying for a week to pay this thing thinking it was a usage bal. hopefully they will remove it without me paying a dime. Then the challenge will be to get the ca to remove it I guess.
