Dont get discouraged! +180pts gained!

Here is my tracker since September, 2018. 554 to 696 based on FICO 09. The battle really started around Jan-February of this year. I did not have Equifax FICO 08 scores back then so I've been using Navy Federal free FICOs to track it. All done using what I call the 3Ps.

Paper (dispute)
Pay
Patience.

I`ll write a small brief of my progress and my strategy shortly. Last baddie is a paid charge off that im suing the CO for violation of the terms of our agreement. I have also lowered my UT% by a good amount since July so I'm hoping the August update reflects that. The other steps included disputing with 623 method, MOV,  arbitration, and other strategies.

My Experian and Transunion 08 FICOs are 716/706 respectively. My FICO 08 for Equifax is 688 ATM. Waiting for last baddie to drop and see the effects of that. Will not be applying for new cards at the moment. I'm more interested in growing the ones I have since they are all very small CLs.

Don't get discouraged!

The three Ps are great.  

 

I might even add Planning or maybe Preparation and Perseverence.

Congrats! Good thinking on growing you scores and limits. Once the scores top out and a little time goes by. Then the door will open for better cards soon. Keep up the great work!





My posts are JMHO. My siggy is not to brag at all. Just sharing my experiences after learning here from rebuild to recovery after BK DC at 540's. And to show fellow members what can be accomplished when you do it right and play the FICO Credit Game. Pay it Forward!

Very nice encouragement for some of us. I'm currently stuck in credit score purgatory (615 - 630 range). Nothing more I can do actively, but sit back and wait for inquries to fall off and CS to raise over time. Congrats on the improvement!!

Definitely gives me some fuel to keep on plugging.  I have already moved up some but still need about that many points to get near the 700's.

Another 20pts gained, up to 714. I have 5-6 inquiries falling off in Sept/Oct and another 3-4 again last 12 months in the same time period. Looking to see the effects on this.

Still have a charge off reporting that I’m close to getting it removed.

Will report back shortly.
