I'm new to to the forum and I think its great so far. Ok I'm in my early 30's and started off with poor credit report and decided to do something about it. Got a new job and paid off derogs on my credit report. Paid off 5 derogs in two months and scores went from very low 500's to low 600-640. I opened a cap on secured and I'am so happy. The question is why does it take equifax so long to go up trans and experian have gonne all the way up. Does equifax update every 30 days or what thanks in advance

never knew this was happening to anyone else; i swear EQ has a kungfu grip my account statuses.
all i've read until now is how slow TU is to update but more times than not they are the first to remove/correct for me. wouldn't know about actual scores since i don't check mine beyond refreshing CK every day... i do plan to pay for FICOs once the dispute period is over though

Just to maked sure, you are taking about FICO scores? Where did you get your scores from?
If you still have a major derog on your CR, it may take some time for your score to see significant improvment vs. lower util which can show improvment the moment they are reported.

mine are from lender pulls but, as i've been reading in the forums, the scores provided from the EQ and TU sites are FAKOS and myFICO is the only place (other than lenders, of course) to get real FICOs

some say they're close to their actual FICO scores and some say they're way off, so i think that's why no one wants to get their hopes up or get discouraged by FAKOs

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO.
