I was wondering if or what credit card or store card could my sister have the best chances of getting to help reestablish credit?
Here is here Credit Picture:
TU FICO: 587
90 Day: 8/06
120 Day: 9/06
Paid in Full: 10/06
Paid off: 1/07
Note: Closed by Creditor

Disputing as fraudulant charges becuase not her's.
She would like to get a target card again but dont know her chances of that.
Any advice would be appreciated.
I suggest getting a secured card first and after it reports for 6 months, try for a store card. Capital One is a good choice for secured card or a Credit Union.
Does anyone think she might have a chance of a Target red Card again? or any other store card with these issues?
What happened to the first Target account? All I see is "Closed by creditor" which is usually a bad sign which makes the chances of going back pretty grim.
Here's some scores of approvals and denials of others to get a better idea: http://www.financeglobe.com/Finance/index.php?p=getcardstatussingle&ordercolumn=approvaldate&rowstar...
As the other poster suggested, secured may be the only way at the moment. Those with <600 can't be too picky.
That site is great! Thanks JayRizzo!
Yes, it's a very cool site where other members submit their approvals/denials and scores from FICO and Experian's Vantage to build a pretty good list to give you an idea whether or not you have a chance. They even submit their own comments. I went through the entire site when I was a builder to pick and choose my particular cards, so it saved me from doing an app spree. I got what I needed and got out.

Thanks for all the info! that site is pretty cool btw!
Yeah, It looks like a secured card is the best way for her to go at the moment to build up some history.
