Re: what is considered "recent"?

"Recent" is pretty much defined by who's evaluating our credit.

 

I wouldn't give up on WFNNB. You do read posts here where people had success. Smiley Happy

Re: what is considered "recent"?

For FICO scoring purposes, I certainly would not expect a 4-year old 30-late to have any significant scoring impact, individually.

I would speculate that it is more the presence of multiple delinquencies than the individ impacts that would raise questions in a manual review.

 

I would suspect that, with scores in the low 600's,  something else is having a more significant impact.

What other derogs are reporting, and what is current utilization?

Re: what is considered "recent"?

From a purely FICO scoring standpoint, "recent" is less than two years old.

Re: what is considered "recent"?

i have other baddies so i know these aren't why my scores are low. i just think i could get things done if i focus on the important stuff because it's a little overwhelming!

 

i have 1% util and no lates for a few years now so i really need to clean up my credit report if i want to get that score up!
