What really ticks me off is it's only four charge-offs totaling less than a thousand dollars (one is paid, the most recent one). I know people who have many thousands in chargeoffs yet have a FICO in the upper 600s (mine has been trapped around 575 since time out of mind...every time it starts to rise one of the collection agencies re-reports a charge-off to knock it back down again). The credit card is a secured card from BofA. I've had it nine months now. I was told when I got it that I'd be eligible for conversion to unsecured status in nine months. I've never made a payment late. Obviously they lied. They just want to keep me down. I even asked them if I could have a credit line increase and keep the $99 for now, but they said now. Monday morning I'm going to call their customer care and keep escalating until I reach someone I can cuss out big-time for this. The reason I am going to cancel ScoreWatch is it really makes no sense for me to have it, since obviously my credit score is something I have no control over. Once it's reduced, the corporations will see it STAYS reduced forever. The whole point of me getting ScoreWatch was to try and improve my FICO so I can buy a home. Obviously it's gonna snow in Death Valley on the Fourth of July before that happens, so why waste my money? I have a fiance in a foreign country...I'll just give the U.S. credit system the finger and we'll buy a house and settle in her country.

We would be the 5th creditor that he stiffs! Denied!"
