Was it a pretty old accounts? Do you have other accounts, good or bad, and how old are they?

 

From how I understand it, once a bad account gets old enough, it's not really hurting your score anymore and can even help. The bigger the AAoA (Average Age of Accounts), the better...so if you have a bad account that is 6 years old and a good account that is 1 year old, your AAoA is 3.5 years. If the bad account falls off, now your AAoA is only 1 year, which is not good.

2 of them are almost 6 yrs old

one that is from this year I have been trying to PFD.

 

some other baddies that are all about to fall off, they are over 6 years old.

We see this quite a bit while cleaning CRs.  You will have the rollercoaster effect, up and down.  Don't sweat it, the cleaning of your report will allow those scores to rise.

Okay...Refresh my memory LoveGoodCredit.

 

How many credit cards do you have and what are their balances/credit lines?

 

What other positive credit do you have?

Re: Derogatory removed! But my score TU score dropped 11 points

These are what I have:

 

One credit card, almost paid off, 60.00 balance of 300 limit. Never late

One loan, it hasnt reported yet though, it is a secured 500.00 loan from my credit union.  Havnt made a payment just yet. 

One car payment, never late.  going on 7 months.

I have two other accounts that have been paid on time, small loans.

 

Then I have baddies

3 collections left, 2 are almost 6 years.  Those total 700.00 so I am going to need to wait till I have the money and see if I can get them to do something after the first.

1 of the three  is from the beginning of the year  (CSD COLLECTIONS) but they are ignoring all my PFD letters.

The forclosure that is getting ready to fall off next year.

One charge off that falls off next year, it just got changed to a 0.00 balance a few days ago.

Two house loans that are paid off but one of them has a 60.00 late

One student loan that falls off in two years.  It has a 0.00 balance.  I can refi and get that removed but currently I am making payments to a bank.  Going to refi after the year.

 

The Child support that is currently up to the attorney generals office and beauro of consumer protection which they are not reporting any payments but reporting 120 days late on EQ only, is still in dispute.  Everytime I dispute my credit drops 30 points.  I am trying to get them to report my payments and remove the negative remark because it is not late.

Yup, that is why I am doing all this.  The lender pulled all my scores and my mid turned up to be a 599.  She told me to pay off my CC and that was when it was 97% util.  I payed it down to 60.00 but it hasnt updated yet.

Re: Derogatory removed! But my score TU score dropped 11 points

Well...I was going to suggest that you apply for a Walmart card. You really do need more good credit reporting to help get your scores up.

 

The reason your scores could have dropped is because of that maxxed out credit card. $60 reporting is still way too high. That is 20% of your credit line. You need to keep the reporting balance below 9%. You can do that by paying multiple times per month.

 

What mid-score do you need to have to qualify? What are your current scores?
