Great score boost

One collection finally came off my EQ and noticed that my score went from 747 to 781.

 

Also some of my cards hit their 1 year mark last month, so that could also have contributed.

 

I started rebuilding end of  2010 and my EQ was 515 then. A long but great journey.

 

 

Now if TU could update

Re: Great score boost

Hi I'm all new to this credit rebuilding thing. Can I ask how did you achieve this? Also, how can a collection drop off the record? I'm having the same problem here.

 

Thanks a lot!

Re: Great score boost

Thanks everyone. I wouls say a lot of my inspiration came from the people on here. It's a great support group to learn and stay consistent.

 

My job is still not over yet, I want to be at least close to the 800 scores but that will probably be in another year or 2.

 

It's definitely a long journey but well worth it. I came here with a total credit limit of $1900 to now well over $100K

 

Thank you all for the support

Congrats!!! That's awesome. It's threads like this that keeps me motivated. I'm so struggling to keep an upbeat attitude through this process but the reward is so worth it in the end.
