I'm glad your scores are higher than you first thought. That's always good news.


But there is no reason to be embarrassed. I would venture to guess that almost no one who comes here has any idea of the difference in "credit scores" that are available these days. I know I certainly didn't.




From a BK years ago to:
EX - 3/11 pulled by lender- 835, EQ - 2/11-816, TU - 2/11-782

"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they've made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem".


Thanks for your kind words.  


I'm actually more relieved than anything - my scores can certainly be improved, but starting with 650-670 as a baseline is much better... Smiley Happy

Starting Score: Jan 2012: EQ - 659, TU08 - 670, EX - ???
Current Score:April 2014: EQ - 772, TU08 - 782, EX - 754
