My Equifax fico score went up only 6 points.  I am not sure whether to be happy or just more confused since alot was deleted.  I guess I should be happy since its getting me closer to the 700's........... This is all so frusterating at times!!

How old were the deleted baddies? If they were extremely old, it won't impact your score that much. Yes, rebuilding has some really frustrating moments. I've experienced the high's/low's. An example is recently I battled Midland to GW a paid collection. After a long battle they finally accepted -- which was a moment of great elation. only to have TU refuse to delete, which was devastating. Eventually they did remove it, which brought on more elation! 


Just hang in there. You're closing in on the 700 club. Once you reach 700, you'll get most anything you want.

The road to a great credit score is paced by a turtle, the road to a bad credit score is led by a nitros fuel injected rocket ship....
