My Situation

I have a mortgage, 2 car loans that report to Equifax, furniture loan, and a Kay card all pays as agreed. I have a charge off from First Premier, dish network collection/co, and a co for $495 that reached the 7 year mark this
month. My scores are still low as I had trouble being on time with my mortgage for a while butmanaged to save it. What else can I do to help raise my scores? Thank You

Re: My Situation

You could try to PFD the CO, plus you could try and GW the lates on your mortgage.

Re: My Situation

You could try both.  If the one that just hit 7 years, if it's 7 years from the DOFD then it's close to falling off.
