Re: Take the FICO Fitness Challenge for 2012!

Hello!

 

For the first time in my life I have made a decision to have good credit and not be scared of my credit file! I am taking this challenge in an effort to clean up my finances. I've been through bankruptcy, credit card charge off, default student loans and every other credit no no under the sun. Since I found this site i have improved my score at least 70 points in the last 6 months, gained 2 cc accounts (haven't had credit since mid 90's) and have brought my student loans out of default! My goals are to be able to buy a home in 12-24 months, save a 6 month emergency fund, raise my credit score to an 800 and live without having to pay extra for everything because I am considered "subprime". The advise I have come across here as been great....its so nice to see people who have been where I am now at where I want to be!!! Thanks again for these forums!
