Re: 11 open accounts "too many"

Greg - there you have it.  EQ is showing a late payment so that is likely why it is so less than the others............

Re: 11 open accounts "too many"

[ Edited ]
You could always over pay to report a $0 bal?
 
 
That is a brilliant idea. The "extra" business accounts are on my report, adding to my accounts with balances so my "normal" personal CC accounts then looks like "too many accounts".  The personal CC have very low balances. So it would be easy to overpay the "extra" personal accounts since they are usually very low amounts. That would drop 1 or 2 off.

Ex, the highest score, also shows the late. This makes me tend to believe BofA's story that there is no reason to request the removal of a late that happened that long ago. However, Ex shows the account as closed and EQ shows it still opened. It has been closed for around 4 years.
