EQ was a little slow but I think it went over 75 within the first month.Prior to August '07 we didn't care about credit. I didn't even know my score. On August 1, we received our zillionth CA letter and DW became very worried. I am a pack rat and sat down and cataloged every single late bill and CA notice we ever received since 1995. Recorded everything in Excel. That gave us a clear picture of who we owed money to, and it wasn't that much. It's amazing how many letters CAs will send over the course of a year or two.We then pulled our reports directly from each CRA. WE didn't know what to do so we looked around and found several forums like this. Finally we learned to pull each FICO report, found this forum and through your advice and others, we got to work.There were several baddies. I had up to 5 CAs listed and DW 2, I think. We had a few COs. No PRs. NO CCs. All the debt we had, with the exception of 1, was over 3 yrs old.There were several things wrong. For example, we had a repo which was redeemed and paid on schedule through the end of the loan. Even though we had the car and title, TU listed the car as a repo with over $2k past due. I did dispute that based on balance and they propertly updated to $0. That helped. Another problem was a 7 yr old CC CO. Only problem was the same CO was listed twice on each report. Double reported. I disputed on the grounds of double reporting and asked them to remove only 1. They removed both due to the 7 yrs, I guess. That wasn't right, but I won't fight them. I also sent DV letter to each CA, and 3 of the 5 couldn't validate and went away. I also had 1 CA and 1 CO baddie fall off in the past few months due to age. EQ just went up by another 20 points this week because an old CA fell off. EQ now at 664. Another thing that helped was getting CCs when I had 0 before (produced a 40 point gain alone).Sorry for being long but it is hard to keep short. I hope that was clear.
