Update on my progess thus far...

I just wanted to give words of encouragment  those who are working on cleaning up their credit:  KEEP IT UP!


I've wanted to give up so many times but I didn't.  Sometimes it takes awhile and sometimes it doesn't (depending on your situation) but in the end... it's worth it.  My credit scores are high enough to qualify as a co-borrower with my husband (who has excellent credit) for a mortgage now. 


I've gotten 8 collections paid and removed...all from 2006; a CO settled/paid off but not removed (but it DID increase my score, not lowered it). I have one $117 collection on my Ex still that had agreed to a PFD and was supposed send a letter stating as such but I got a bill instead (will NOT pay them until they send the correct letter). Still working on that one.




Thank you to those who've helped me in my "Operation: clean credit" endeavor and have posted awesome help and guidance threads.
