Re: new here need help clearing bad credit

Welcome to the forums!

I'd suggest reading the following:

Common Abbreviations

Credit Scoring 101 - great for knowing what is in your credit score and to see how your score is impacted.

What Steps Do I Take - great for learning the repair process.

and Example letters - PFDs, GWs, DVs, etc.

 

Send GW letters to whomever reports those medical bills (assuming they are paid). Ask for deletion.

llecs hit it right on the head. Your best bet will be the GW letters since the debts are already paid so PFD won't do too much. I was able to get multiple off my CR with GW letters. Keep in mind, you may have to send more than one to each CA.

 

BTW, Welcome to the forum! myficoforum has helped me raise my score almost 175 points and I hope it can do the same for you. Do not be afraid to ask even the most simple question. I promise whatever questions you may have have been asked before and there is someone that can help. Its a great support system here so take full advantage.
