Re: Scores are up

Great job!! Have you done anything else to help improve your score? For example, pay down debts or GW?

Re: Scores are up

Yeah, after BK, it is NOT just time. I wasted three years thinking time would heal it. You have to get new credit and keet it at 10%. Not bad though, 670 after a year and a half. I see people do that in a month, but I don;t think they had a bk and tax lien and 8 baddies.

Re: Scores are up

Yeah I do not have a bk just had a few charges offs and got way behind on student loans. But I have been rehabing them so in a few months they will no longer be in default.
