equifax

i just went to zero balances and eq is still the same.  i just simply can't move it except if i use 1000 of my credit line they will move it down. i can't tell how much my 1999 bk hurts me with them.  you can't talk to them.  any advice?

How many open accounts are reporting? BK from 1999 should not be hurting that much by now. Thin file is my guess.

Re: equifax

How many of the open CC have a balance?

In the mix of credit-FICO likes to see a mortgage-
If no mortgage they like to see 1 open installment account at least 6 months old paid down to 50% of original balance-

Even if this is a signature loan from your bank, auto loan or Student loan. It does not like Consumer finance accts though.

Re: equifax

i don't owe anything on ccs.  getting ready to retire. car paid. no plans to make any major purchases. i guess im stuck with that equifax score unless i buy a car or house or take out a loan. bummer.
