Re: Can someone explain?

There is also a satisfied medical judgment. Was only updated to PAID July of last year because I happened to see it still open, even though it was paid in 2011.

Get those CC paid down.  One to 0 the other to 9% or below.  Your overall utilization is around 51% which is high.  YMMV but I would say between 5 - 10 points for every 10% paid down.

 

For the judgment, find out if your state allows satisfied judgments to be vacated.

Those merchant cards could be included in your revolving.  How are they listed on your CR?

Right. All the merchant accounts are listed as revolving.

So, I'm guessing the total revolving utilization should be under 50, right?

Total revolving utilization, for optimum FICO score should be 9% or under.  That is usually done by letting all but one report 0 balances and the last one at 9% or below.

Re: Can someone explain?

What was the PFD attempt on? Also I would consider lowering your credit card utilitzation to the 10 to 20% range which should help your scores.

On that newly reported late. It was unsuccessful.
