I started my rebuild after not using credit for 7 years and recently by chance finding an mystery collection on my credit reports.
I disputed the validity of collection, and on Friday both EX and TU informed me that they have ruled in my favor and the EX score jumped to 730 and I will know my new TU score tomorrow. No update from EQ yet.
So I pulled the trigger and was instantly approved of my first card in 7 years, Amex BCE with SL of $2k.
Many thanks to the many forum members who have helped me tremendously.
Seven looooooong years, huh? Congrats on the approval and that it's with Amex. Good luck climbing those scores and credit higher and higher.
Congrats on clearing up your reports and your new Amex card
