Getting very close to 700!!

Hi all,


I've been in the no credit wasteland for so long, that I never would have thought my credit scores could improve. Suprise!

July 2012

EQ: 624 (FICO ScoreWatch)
EX: 659 (FAKO, Experian site)
TU: 653 (FAKO, Experian site)


November 2012

EQ: 644 (FICO ScoreWatch)
EX: 767 (FAKO, Experian site)
TU: 694 (FAKO, TransUnion site)


December 2012

EQ: 683 (FICO ScoreWatch)
EX: 770 (FAKO, Experian site)
TU: Unknown


Even though some of these are FAKOs, it's an awesome feeling to see the proof of the steps I'm taking to fix my credit score. Anyone can do this, just follow the advice found on this forum!

Hope to break into the 700 Club soon!
